One Step Closer

The most important thing you should know about Grace Church as you consider checking us out is that the aim of absolutely everything we do is to move one step closer to Jesus.And we believe that can only happen when a Gentle Environment made up of the Good News, and Safety, and Time are present. It’s where we’re finally free to grow one step closer to Jesus.

Good News for bad people through the finished work of Christ on the cross and the endless power of the Holy Spirit. Multiple exposures. Constant immersion. Wave upon wave of grace and truth, according to the Bible.

: a non-accusing environment. No embarrassing anyone. No manipulation. No oppression. No condescension. But respect and sympathy and understanding, where sinners can confess and unburden their souls. A church environment where no one seeking the Lord has anything to fear.

: no pressure. Not even self-imposed pressure. No deadlines on growth. Urgency, but not hurry, because no one changes quickly. A lot of space for complicated people to rethink their lives at a deep level. God is patient.

At Grace, we’re constantly working on brining about this Gentle Environment where we can all grow one step closer to Jesus. With that environment in place, how do we grow one step closer to Jesus? Through three Pathways to Growth:
  • the Sunday Morning Gathering
  • our Learning Environments
  • and Community

You can learn more about our Pathways to Growth here.

The only thing left is to know the way we grow one step closer to Jesus. In other words, what are the behaviors of a follower of Jesus? What does he expect of his disciples? We believe there are 8 key components of discipleship, what we like to call Next Steps in growing closer to Jesus. You can find out more by attending our Sunday worship service; we are currently unpacking the 8 key components of discipleship in the Next Steps sermon series.

That’s all there is, friend.
One step closer to Jesus.
In a gentle environment of good news and safety and time.
Walking along three pathways of growth.
As we practice 8 Next Steps that help us and move us along the journey.
Come and join us. You’re in for the grandest of adventures!
