When we launched in 1996, we stated that we were seeking to reach the "burned, bored, and by-passed" with the life changing message of Jesus. We are not about religion and rules, but we are about following Him. Our prayer is that wherever you are on your journey with God, you would feel valued and accepted here.
PURPOSE / VALUES
ANYTHING SHORT OF SIN
We will get creative and try anything short of sin to reach people far from God—as many as possible (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
BELONG BEFORE BELIEVE
Just come as you are and hangout with Jesus and his people (John 1:38-39; 43-46)
FOUND PEOPLE FIND PEOPLE
The most natural and effective way the church grows is when people invite their friends to “come and see” (John 1:46; 4:29, 39-42)
The church is not a program, but a family where you can find love, acceptance, forgiveness, and deep-level friendship (John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42-47)
MAIN THING IS THE MAIN THING
The gospel of grace through the finished work of Jesus is the central message of Scripture and Grace Place (Romans 1:16-17; Ephesians 2:8-9)
SAVED PEOPLE SERVE PEOPLE
Our response to the gospel of grace is to give our time, talent, and treasure to worship Jesus and serve others in love (Mark 10:45; Galatians 5:13)
