Who we are

Gospel of Grace Fellowship is a Bible-believing, Christ-centered church that is committed to teaching and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ from every part of the Bible. We are a community of people who gather together because we recognize our common need for God’s grace. We worship regularly so we may give God praise, be built up by the Word of God, and encourage one another. It is our desire that all who come to GGF will cling to the gospel of Jesus while pressing on toward greater Christian maturity. 


We trust and pray that when you meet with us you will encounter genuine Christian love and the power of the Holy Spirit as the Word of God is proclaimed. 

A Few distinctives

Here are seven distinctives of Gospel of Grace Fellowship that will help you better understand what we are about! Also, be sure to check out our full doctrinal statement

Christ-Centered

Christ is Lord over all, regardless of whether recognize his lordship or not. We desire to live under the lordship of Jesus Christ. We are completely dependent on him and exalt him as the only savior of mankind. His sovereign grace gives forgiveness, eternal life, purpose, and joy. In our preaching, worship, prayer, and actions, we are motivated by love for Jesus. He is our pursuit and we desire to please him in all things. 

expository Preaching

Expository preaching is preaching that takes the main point of a passage and makes that the main point of the sermon and applies that truth to life today. 


Why is this so important? It’s important because it is God’s Word that convicts, converts, builds up, and sanctifies God’s people. Expository preaching makes God’s agenda rule the church, not man’s.

Protestant

Although GGF is currently not affiliated with a denomination, we trace our spiritual heritage to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. We are therefore committed to the following five “solas” of the Reformation:

  • Sola Scriptura — scripture alone is our supreme authority
  • Sola Gratia — salvation is by grace alone
  • Sola Fide — salvation is through faith alone
  • Solus Christus — salvation is in Christ alone
  • Soli Deo Gloria — salvation, and indeed all things, are for the glory of God alone.

We also subscribe to the same doctrines of sovereign grace that Paul, the other apostles, and Jesus himself believed and taught.

Gospel-focused

Proclaiming the good news of Jesus each week is a priority because: 

  1. There may be people in the congregation who are not truly converted to Jesus Christ. The gospel is the only solution.
  2. Visitors frequent our assembly and they may only have this one week to hear the gospel. In fact, nobody knows what tomorrow will bring. 
  3. Christians need to hear the gospel as a reminder to rejoice in God and in their salvation. We never tire of the gospel. 
  4. We need to be equipped to share the gospel, so hearing it shared often, and from different portions of the Bible each week, helps us in this task.

Evangelical

This word has become a very broad and confusing term which makes it necessary to explain what we mean by it. Evangelicals have historically believed the biblical gospel of Jesus Christ. This has typically meant an emphasis on being born again; viewing the Bible as God’s authoritative Word; the teachings of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; and the proclamation of the gospel.

Complementarian

We believe that men and women have equal dignity and value before God, yet men and women have distinct and complementary roles in the home and in the church. This is most noticeable when God reserves the role of church leadership and teaching to qualified men (1 Tim 2:12). Both men and women have equal worth and value not because of what they do, but because they are both made in the image of God and are heirs of the grace of life (1 Peter 3:7). 

Age-integrated

At GGF you can expect a family friendly environment with lots of kids and toddlers joining in. While we do not offer children’s church, there is a nursery available that is equipped with a video of the service. It is a good thing for whole families to worship together, so we have plenty of patience with noise and wiggles! During our Wednesday evening gatherings we offer a children’s class where the young ones are taught the Word and spend time memorizing it. 


The Bible teaches that the primary responsibility for instructing children falls on dads and moms. For this reason, we seek to equip and aid parents in this great task, not replace them.
