Mission

PURSUING THE WAY OF JESUS, PROCLAIMING HE IS LORD!


Grace Community is a body of believers seeking to pursue the way of Jesus together with our minds and from our hearts. We endeavor to grow together as we intentionally invest time and resources into becoming Christ-like in character and behavior (John 14:15-21). 


We proclaim Jesus is Lord to the world around us through the way we love one another (John 13:35) and the way we love those around us (James 1:27, Matthew 4:23)

Values

OUR VALUES DESCRIBE QUALITIES WE WANT TO EMBODY AS WE GO ABOUT OUR VISION AND MISSION.

  • A Church centered in Jesus: We are and will continue to be a "Jesus church," finding our life, health, vision, and strength in the person of Jesus Christ. We will keep Jesus at the center of our faith and life together.
  • Life rooted in Scripture: We affirm that the scriptures are God’s special communication and though diverse in structure, form a coherent and authoritative narrative or story that provides the basis for our understanding of who God is and how we should orient our lives around him. 
  • Relationships formed in community: We value authentic Christian community as a necessary context in which spiritual formation can occur.
  • Faith expressed in action: We value action empowered by the Holy Spirit as a natural outflow of our faith in Jesus. expressing God's love, compassion, and justice in word and deed in our everyday lives.

BELIEFS

The leadership team of Grace Community relies on the Iowa Ministry Network for support, accountability, and oversight. 


We believe in God, the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,

And born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

Was crucified, died, and was buried.

He went down into the grave.

The third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven

And is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

The holy world-wide church,

The communion of Christians,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body,

And life everlasting.
