Our mission and vision

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Grace Mennonite Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ. This is what Jesus called us to do in Matthew 28: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...." A disciple is one who knows and loves Jesus and has surrendered his life to follow him.

Our vision is to be Christ's hands and feet in the world, every day.

At Grace we believe that the way to make disciples of others is to be Christ's hands and feet in the world every day. That means we constantly look for practical ways to share the love of Jesus with those we come in contact with every day.

The Worship Ministry at Grace plans our worship services and leads our singing and music. We find that all kinds of music can help us glorify God (which is the point of our worship!). At our services we play and sing a mix of praise songs and traditional hymns.

"Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord..." Ephesians 5:19

church life

Our Church Life Ministry creates opportunities for the church community to share life together and deepen friendships. This ministry team also tends to the needs of church members, such as visits and meals to those who need them.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." Acts 2:42


We try to be Christ's hands and feet right here at home through ministries such as our Fall Fest, Live Nativity, Refresh conferences, and Upward Flag Football. But we also support dozens of individuals and families who are being Christ's hands and feet all over the world. Those relationships are managed by our Missions Ministry. Approximately one-third of our annual budget is used to support these missionaries and their families.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..."  Matthew 28:19


Living a life like Jesus lived is not something we do all by ourselves. We study, learn and apply God's word in community with others. Our Education Ministry tends to this process by managing our small group (Sunday School) program. Grace offers small groups for every age, where we learn more about what the Bible says and how to apply it to our lives.

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching..." 

2 Timothy 3:16


Our Stewardship Ministry is the church operations department. This team takes the lead in establishing the church's budget and managing finances, and also oversees the care and upkeep of church property. 

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace..." 1 Peter 4:10

What we believe


We believe there is one God, creator of all things visible and invisible, who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14  

We believe Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, the image of the invisible God, fully human, fully divine. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and the assurance of His coming again.  Matthew 28:19; John 1:14; Colossians 1:15;  II Corinthians 5:21; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 1:11


We believe that a Christian is one who is saved by the grace of God working through his faith, and is growing in the likeness of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit within. We believe that the grace of God was extended in Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead, and that man’s faith is responding to God’s grace with repentance and the acceptance of Christ as Savior and Lord.  Ephesians 2:8-9; II Corinthians 3:18; John 3:16; Acts 2:38

We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection after death, and an eternal future determined by divine judgment. Those who have accepted Christ as Savior and Lord will be raised to eternal life with God in heaven, and those who rejected Christ to hell and eternal separation from God.  Acts 17:30-31; Matthew 25:46; Romans 2:7-8

We believe in the divine inspiration and infallibility of the Bible as the Word of God, and that it is the fully reliable and trustworthy standard for Christian faith and life.  Matthew 5:17-19; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21    



We believe the life and teachings of Christ, as taught in the Scriptures, show us what God wants for mankind: to live in relationship with God in all holiness, love, and complete surrender to God’s will. The life of Christ is to be manifested in His disciples in all family and social relationships. To live the life of Christ implies the fullest exercise of love. This means non-resistance to evil by worldly means, and the abandonment of the use of violence, including warfare. We believe that the Christian life will express itself in nonconformity to the patterns of the world in life and conduct.  Matthew 5:48; I Peter 2:21-25; Matthew 5:44; Ephesians 2:13-16; Romans 12:1-2


We believe the church is the assembly of those who have accepted God’s offer of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. It is called to become ever more like Christ, its head, in worship, ministry, witness, mutual love and care, and in the ordering of its common life. We believe the church is the household of faith under the fatherhood of God in Christ.  Ephesians 4:13-15; Galatians 3:26; I Peter 2:9-10; Ephesians 1:3-5; Ephesians 2:19

We believe that the disciplines of prayer, the study of Scripture, and corporate worship are essential means to grow in our fellowship with God and put ourselves more completely in His will.  I Timothy 4:7-8; II Timothy 3:14-15; Hebrews 10:23-25; Philippians 4:6-9

We believe baptism should be administered upon repentance from sin and confession of faith in Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:38-39; Galatians 3:27

We believe that Christians should speak the truth under all circumstances. The swearing of oaths, whether of allegiance to human institutions, or in all legal and social matters, should not be practiced. Affirmation is the form used by members of the church in legal matters.  James 5:12; Acts 5:29; Matthew 5:33-37
