At Grace River we want to provide experiences where you will encounter the presence of God, the people of God, the purposes of God, the power of God, and the possibilities of God.


The Presence of God: changing your life as you worship God.

“He answered: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

—Luke 10:27


The People of God: changing your life as you meet faith-filled and faithful friends.

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.”

—Romans 13:8


The Purposes of God: changing your life as you learn how to follow Jesus Christ.

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

—Colossians 2:6–7


The Power of God: changing your life as you are released, renewed and restored by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus read: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

—Luke 4:18–20


The Possibilities of God: changing your life by sending you into your world to share with other people the good news of Jesus Christ’s love, forgiveness, salvation, and new life.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”

—Matthew 28:18–20
