About GMI

Grace Ministries International exists as a ministry of Grace Community Church to equip, send, and shepherd our missionaries as they endeavor to make disciples of all nations by means of evangelism, discipleship, church planting and strengthening, leadership training, and Bible translation, through the local church unto the glory of God through Jesus Christ.

Why Missions?

The mission of the church was articulated by Jesus Christ in the Great Commission, to make disciples of all nations unto the glory of God through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18–20). The book of Acts and the epistles of the New Testament demonstrate that this disciple-making endeavor is carried out through the ministry of the local church (Acts 2:43–47; 9:31; 11:26; 14:23; 1 Timothy 3:15).

Therefore, the mission of the church is to proclaim Christ, seeking to establish and strengthen local churches. Grace Church and GMI are committed to a focus upon church planting, church strengthening and development of indigenous church leadership who will continue the work of the Great Commission to other regions.

Lights in the World

One of the most vivid illustrations Jesus used to describe Himself was that of light in a dark place. Just as someone in a dark room is powerless and vulnerable without a light, so are we powerless and vulnerable in the face of sin and death...
