We Are A Jesus Church Where The Gospel Is Central.
Love Jesus. Build People. Lead Revival.
We value Jesus above anything else in this life. We rest in the love of the Father, seeing ourselves through His eyes. Our lives are a loving response and a passionate pursuit of Jesus, our King. We run to His presence with surrendered hearts, hungry to encounter the power of the Holy Spirit. We care about what Jesus thinks. We unite around the treasure that He is, overflowing with heavenly joy, and ready to sacrifice for anything that would bring Him glory. We are a church that is wild for Jesus, running in His direction with hearts ablaze with love for our King.
We encourage and strengthen people, no matter who they are or where they’ve been because they bear the image of our glorious God and are precious in His eyes. We contend for the spiritual freedom of individuals and lead the way toward genuine, inside-out transformation and maturity. Liberated by the priceless promises of God, we lead people to embrace the restorative, life-shaping truths of the Scriptures. We journey with people, training them in the way of Jesus, and leading them to live in victory, hope, and love.
We desire to wake up everyday, determined to see our world transformed by the supernatural power of God. We draw a line in the sand, fighting for the spiritual restoration of our people, our region, and our world. Moved by the Holy Spirit and seeing people with the extravagant love of the Father, we embody the compassion of Christ. We are relevant in our approach, deep in our relationships, missional in our living, and dependent in prayer. Our goal is to pioneer a spiritual awakening as we fearlessly invade darkness with the light of Jesus.
A Welcoming Family Where People are Cared For
We operate in love toward people here. As a result, we are a family where restoration can happen for any person, regardless of their background or season of life. We are all broken people for whom Jesus died, and we are committed to caring for those He longs for.
A Growth Community Where Disciples are Made
We invest in people’s growth, helping them develop spiritually and follow God with all of their hearts. We are committed to training and equipping people in biblical truth and then releasing them to multiply disciples in the world and live on mission everyday.
A Change Catalyst Where Lives are Transformed
Testimonies of true life-change will be a regular celebration in this community. We are committed to nurturing a freedom to be vulnerable with others, honest about struggles, and open about issues. Growing in transparency will increase life transformation, and we will prayerfully guard the hearts of people.
A House of Champions Where Young People can Thrive
When we see young people, we celebrate! Our hearts’ posture toward the younger generation is positive and hope-filled. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to see children and youth come alive to God’s love and make a lasting difference with their lives.
A Unified Leadership Where We Move Forward Together
We will set the highest standard for honor, integrity, humility, mutual submission, and love. We vow to operate in trust, surrender our agendas, and lead with hearts united.
Expect life change! We are passionate about reaching people where they are. We have two Sunday morning services, 9 and 10:30am. Catch us online anytime! You can visit our Facebook or Vimeo pages @gracelititz to catch up on any missed services or to watch live every Sunday morning.
The One True God Existing eternally as three persons–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
His preexistence and deity (John 1:1-13), incarnation by virgin birth (John 1:14); Matt. 1:18-23;, sinless life (Heb. 4:15), substitutionary death (2 Cor. 5:21), bodily resurrection (Luke 24:36-43), ascension into heaven and present ministry (Heb. 4:14:16), and coming again (Acts 1:11).
THE HOLY SPIRIT
THE HOLY SPIRIT
His personality (John 16:7-15); and deity (Acts 5:3-4); and His work in each believer: baptism and indwelling at the moment of regeneration (1 Cor. 12:13); Rom. 8:9); and filling (Eph. 5:18) to empower for Christian life and service (Eph. 3:16; Acts 1:8; Gal. 5:22-23).
The Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, verbally inspired in all parts, and therefore wholly without error as originally given of God (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
His direct creation in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-28), his subsequent fall into sin resulting in spiritual death (Gen. 3:1-24, Rom. 5:12), and the necessity of the new birth for his salvation (John 3:3-5).
A complete and eternal salvation by God’s grace alone, received as the gift of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work (Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
One true Church, the body and the bride of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25-32), composed of all true believers of the present age (1 Cor. 12:12-13); and the organization of its members in local churches for worship, for edification of believers, and for world-wide gospel witness, each local church being autonomous but cooperating in fellowship and work (Eph. 4:11-16).
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
A life of righteousness, good works and separation unto God from the evil ways of the world (Rom 12:1- 2), manifested by speaking the truth (James 5:12), maintaining the sanctity of the home (Eph. 5:22-6:4) settling differences between Christians in accordance with the Word of God (1 Cor. 6:1-8), not engaging in carnal strife but showing a Christ-like attitude toward all men (Rom. 12:7-21), exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), and maintaining a life of prayer (Eph. 6:18; Phil. 4:6), including the privilege, when sick, of calling for the elders of the church to pray and to anoint with oil in the name of the Lord (James 5:13-18).
The Christian should observe the ordinances of our Lord Jesus Christ, which are (1) baptism of believers by triune immersion (Matt. 28:19) and (2) the threefold communion service, consisting of the washing of the saint’s feet (John 13:1-17), the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11:20-22, 33-34); Jude 12), and the communion of the bread and the cup (1 Cor. 11:23-26).
His existence and personality as the great adversary of God and his people (Rev. 12:1-10), his judgment (John 12:31), and final doom (Rev).
The personal, visible and imminent return of Christ to remove His Church from the earth (1 Thess. 4:16- 17), before the Tribulation (1 Thess. 1:10; Rev. 3:10), and afterward to descend with the Church to establish His millennial kingdom upon the earth (Rev. 19:11-20:6).
The conscious existence of the dead (Phil. 1:21-23; Luke 16:19-31), the resurrection of the body (John 5:28-29), the judgment and reward of believers (Rom. 14:10-12; 2 Cor. 5:10), the judgment and condemnation of unbelievers (Rev. 20:11-15), the eternal life of the saved (John 3:16), and the eternal punishment of the lost (Matt. 25:46; Rev. 20:15).
What To Expect
We believe that worship is central. As a church we use all kinds of methods to worship Jesus, but the one constant we have is a reflection of passion for Jesus!
We teach not only for Bible education, but for life transformation. We believe the word of God has the power to transform lives and hearts.
Every Sunday there are opportunities to respond to the message, and practical steps you can take to apply the message to life.
Every Sunday morning there are numerous opportunities to encourage and get to know each other. Check out the Cafe @ Grace,
with comfortable seating, coffee, specialty drinks, and pastries to enjoy while getting to know others.
We are a casual church; we want you to feel comfortable, so come as you are!
You will not be out of place in a suit or a t-shirt.
