Local Outreach

When the Apostle Peter was seeking to describe what it means to be a Christian, he gave us insight into God's motive for saving a people for His own possession. In 1 Peter 2:9, Peter tells us that God has redeemed Christians "so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." We serve a magnificently gracious God who has forgiven our sins and has satisfied our souls. And because we love Him, we desire to "proclaim His excellencies" to all who will listen.

Our Local Outreach department seeks to instruct and equip Grace Community Church members in the obedient and joyful pursuit of that Great Commission (cf. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) by taking the Gospel to our community. Our philosophy of ministry regarding evangelism is as follows. Biblical evangelism is:

  • God-centered rather than man-centered,
  • Theology-driven rather than method-driven,
  • Discipleship-oriented rather than decision-oriented, and
  • Time-redeeming.
