Grace Baptist Mission

Grace is a Christ-centered community calling all people, as partners, to practice the transforming Good News of God’s Grace.

Christ-Centered

We’re committed to teaching about Christ’s life and to equipping people to work out their relationship to the Risen Christ.  We DO NOT teach or expect doctrinal conformity about Christ or about other aspects of traditional Christian doctrine.

Community

We are committed to being actively involved in one another’s lives and to share with one another in the joys and struggles of the life of faith.

Calling All People

We believe that all have been invited to follow the Way of Jesus and are committed to fully welcoming all people who cross our path to this journey.  We provide a place of welcome in particular for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christians and straight allies who desire this diversity in their church family.

As Partners

All people are equally loved and called to the Christian life.  Though we have many different gifts and callings, Grace worship, fellowship and mission activities model that all of us are in some way partners in the task.

Practice the Transforming Good News

We teach about God’s welcome and unconditional love made known in Jesus Christ, and that this Good News  can truly TRANSFORM us from fearful and broken people into generous and loving people.  We PRACTICE this Good News by striving above all to be welcoming and loving to one another, sharpening each other as we study and play and worship together.

Of God’s Grace

We  rest in the mysterious power of God’s love and the certainty that God’s understanding and acceptance can never be earned or boxed-in, only accepted as a free gift.
