Helping people know and follow Jesus.

What We Believe

Grace Community Church of Willow Street

believes that the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. The Bible is our final authority for matters of doctrine and standards of Christian living.

WE AFFIRM THAT:

  1. The universe is the purposeful creation of a personal, loving, almighty God.
  2. Our world is under the sway of sin as a result of an historical and a personal human rebellion against God, so that suffering, death, and separation from God are the experience of humankind; and that without the intervention of God’s grace, this will be the eternal state of all persons.
  3. All human beings are made in the image of the Creator and are of infinite worth.
  4. Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. He is the incarnate Son of God, and through his virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death on the Cross, and glorious resurrection and ascension, graciously offers new life to all who receive him by faith.
  5. The Holy Spirit, indwelling believers, gives them a desire and an ability to follow biblical standards of conduct in their personal lives and in society.
  6. The Christian faith is lived in the community of the church, where worship and witness are embodied through the spiritual gifts of its members.
  7. Jesus Christ will return to this world, bring an end to history as we know it, inaugurate the final judgment, and welcome believers into his eternal kingdom.
