THE GROVE CHURCH VISION & BELIEFS

 
We exist to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus for the purpose of transforming our world.

A disciple at The Grove Church is:

A follower of Jesus helps others follow Jesus. 

 

How can I live as a disciple at The Grove? 
CONNECT

God is a relational >

Vision Icons_Connect-02.png

God is a relational God. Therefore, our path must begin with a relationship with Him. God's design for this relationship is both personal and in community.
Connect with God (Mark 1:35), & connect with church (Hebrews 10:24-25; John 13:34-35). 

CONNECT
GROW

Spiritual growth is rooted>

Vision Icons_Grow-02.png

Spiritual growth is rooted in a deeper understanding of God and is expressed by living daily to reflect Him. We believe this happens best in spiritual community, by serving and by being committed (membership) (Acts 2:42-47).

As followers of Jesus we share God's love and good news with others in every relationship, every moment and in every way we can.

(Matthew 28:18-20)
We believe that God has strategically placed you in the neighborhood where you live, the job you work, the school where you learn and the areas where you play. (Mark 12:30-31)
Go into your neighborhood, your community and the world.

WE BELIEVE

the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. 

The Statement of Faith at The Grove Church is the same as the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA). Visit the EFCA website for more information about the Statement of Faith.
