You’re invited. And not just to attend, to belong. Grace is a family, and we hope you feel like you’re a part of it right away. You’re welcome to join us any Sunday at a campus near you.
Grace is one non-denominational church worshipping in six local campuses around the greater Orlando area, with a mission to help people take their next step toward Christ. Our model gives us the strength and resources of a larger church but the community and neighborhood feel of a small one. We have in-person pastors and leaders at all of our campuses, allowing us to connect with people and teach the Bible in ways that speak to each unique community. It also allows us to resource and train as many next generations leaders as possible for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Grace has an informal, casual feel; most people don’t dress up (although it’s awesome if you do). We can’t wait to catch up with our church family as we come in, most likely over free coffee and donuts. We welcome new people and want them to feel like a part of the family from the very first day.
Our services generally flow something like this: songs, a few announcements, readings, more singing, confession, communion and prayer, and teaching from the Bible. They’re about 75 minutes long.
Everything is up on a screen and we explain stuff each week, so there’s no fear that you won’t know what to say or how to participate (and no shame in not participating at all). We have live teaching at all Grace campuses — no video.
If you have kids from birth through elementary age, you can check them in to their own safe, awesome, and age-focused classes before the service. Our teachers are excellent, we have awesome communication with parents, and we background check all our volunteers and have medical professionals on call.
And if you have middle or high school students, they join us in the service for the first part of worship — the songs and communion — and are dismissed to their classes before the message (kids stuff is available in all our services, but contact us to see if your campus offers student programming and when).
You are welcome to bring your kids or students with you to the entire worship service — we just ask you to make sure they’re not being so cute they’re distracting to others. Our messages are also designed for adults, so just be aware that sometimes the teaching is PG-13. Learn more about our family ministries.
Serving gives you a regular, accountable opportunity to put God first. And hands down, volunteering is the best path to belonging. We want you to feel like one of the family — part of the team.
We count on our members to be the core of Grace — to be the people who commit to it, love it, pray for it, give to it, serve for Jesus in it. Sign up for the next Discover Grace to learn how.
Baptism is a public witness to your faith and a symbol of the transformation of your life — dying to self and coming a live to god. We think it’s so important, we throw a party.
Grace Communities are smaller gatherings in homes around the city that connect us for growth, conversation, and service. They help us bring the truth we learn to real life.
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed as three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co- equal and are one God.
We are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Everyone is marred by an attitude of rebellion toward God called sin. Sin separates people from God.
People are created to exist forever. Every person will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through His forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is heaven. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of the virgin Mary by miraculous conception, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory where He is the only Mediator between God and people. He will return again to earth and will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Salvation is a gift from God. Men and women can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin’s penalty. When God has begun a saving work in the heart of any person, He gives assurance in His Word that He will continue performing it until the day of its full consummation.
Because God gives men and women eternal life through Jesus Christ, and adopts them as His own, salvation is received and maintained by the grace and power of God—not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives believers the assurance of salvation. No power in the universe can separate God’s children from Him.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God’s word to all. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are inspired by God, and are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God.
Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. This church recognizes that it cannot bind the conscience of individual members in areas where Scripture is silent. Rather each believer is to be led in those areas by the Lord, to whom he or she alone is ultimately responsible.
