Grace Community is a non-denominational church. We are not opposed to denominations but we feel more comfortable with a format which can accommodate more individuals who, although Christians, do not necessarily agree on all the finer points of doctrine.
Denominations exist because of distinctives (or differences) in doctrine. We believe doctrine is of tremendous importance. We also believe every Christian should be committed to membership in a local church. We have tried to structure our church in such a way that membership and fellowship are based on the most basic essentials of the historic Christian Faith. This is not to say that other areas of doctrine are unimportant, but that disagreement in such areas need not exclude anyone from our church fellowship.
At Grace Community, we have adopted as our philosophy the general sentiment expressed by Chrysostom in the following statement: In essentials, unity. In nonessentials, charity. In all things, Jesus Christ.
