Most modern churches have deviated from the historic doctrinal positions and practices of the churchâ€™s great leaders. Without a solid, time-tested, doctrinal statement churches can and do run astray. Many of the doctrinal errors seen today are merely ancient heresies repackaged for the modern age. Most, if not all, of these doctrinal inconsistencies may have been avoided if churches adopted tried and true doctrines of the church from times past. We do not elevate the older confessions to the level of Scripture, but believe that a careful study of prior statements of faith will deepen our understanding of what â€śman is to believe concerning God and what duty God requires of man.â€ť We believe that the church benefits tremendously by returning to historic teachings of the church.
Traditional Service and Verse-by-Verse Teaching
With this goal in mind our service is traditional with some modern elements, singing hymns, spiritual songs and even the Psalms (the forgotten songs of the Bible). We take communion weekly and teach verse-by-verse. We pray for needs within the church and read Scripture together.
Promoting Church Unity
Most importantly we seek to unite Christians of different backgrounds choosing not to divide over non-essentials. Our goal every Sunday is to worship the Lord with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and anyone who wishes to do so may worship with us. Although families in our congregation may hold slightly different views on the non-essentials, we strive to avoid division and strife within the church.
Embracing Family Worship
Grace Christian Fellowship seeks to unite families rather than dividing the church on Sundays. Why do we do this? Evidence proves that removing children from the worship service negatively impacts their Christian worldview. Studies show that almost 85% of the children who do not worship with their families will leave the church. By contrast, greater than 85% of children in family-integrated churches remain in the church into adulthood! These are staggering figures; ones that encouraged us to do something different.
Grace Christian Fellowship seeks to return to sound Christian doctrines of our Fathers. Many of these distinctive are new to the 21st century Christian but the blessings from each of these aspects will be profound.
