OUR M.V.P.

The what, where and how we do what we do!

OUR M.V.P.
MANDATE:
Grace City Church has a mandate to:
  • Mature believers.
  • Teach how to live by faith.
  • Exemplify demonstrations of the Spirit and power.
  • Contend for a spiritual awakening.
  • Awaken and strengthen the spirit of prayer in people.
  • Help develop churches that have the DNA of the Holy Spirit and the advancing church in Acts.
MISSION:
"Awaken people to Jesus"

We are compelled by His love to minister reconciliation to others!

2 Corinthians 5:11 (TPT)
Since we are those who stand in holy awe of the Lord, we make it our passion to persuade others to turn to Him ...
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (TPT)
Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new. And God has made all things new, and reconciled us to Himself, and given us the ministry of reconciling others to God. In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world, not even keeping records of their transgressions, and He has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God.

To live is to live for Christ!

It's in Jesus that we live and move and in Him we exist. We have found new life in Jesus and want to introduce you to Him so you can find this life too.

Acts 17:28 (NKJV)
... for in Him we live and move and have our being.
Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV)
... looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith ...
VISION:
"Help people:
- become whole in their spirit, soul and body,
- discover their purpose in Christ,
- prepare and position for the work."

Jesus is working in us all and bringing us into perfection, a whole man, complete and mature in Him.

PURPOSE:
"Grace City Church exists to establish God's restoration plan for this city and the people in it."

We are on assignment with blueprints to repair and build anew.

Isaiah 61:1-4 (NKJV)
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God;

To comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations."
