About Our Church

Day of Grace


We are a group of people who share in a common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We assemble as an independent, self-governing church. We recognize each believer as a member of the body of Christ and do not require church membership. While we have those who fill the role of pastor, we do not practice man-made ecclesiastical authority.

We believe that each believer is an ambassador of Christ (1 Corinthians 5:20) and encourage all to participate in the ministry of reconciliation by preaching the gospel of grace to the lost world.

What We Believe

We believe that the Scriptures are the final authority in all matters of faith and doctrine. None of us have all the understanding of every passage, so we are willing change our minds and grow together in our knowledge of the scriptures.

However, there are a few basic doctrines that we emphasize regularly as a basis for our understanding of the Bible.

The scriptures are the absolute authority.

Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:16-17

God is one, yet God exists in three distinct persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7

All men, in their natural state, are separated from God, are unrighteous sinners, and therefore in need of salvation. To reject God's salvation is to incur the wrath of God.

Romans 1:18, 2:3-6, 3:10, 3:23

Jesus, as the eternal Son of God, took on flesh, became a man, lived a sinless life of perfect obedience under the law. He died on the cross, was buried, and rose again the third day.

John 1:14, Galatians 4:4-5, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Salvation is offered freely to all people on the merits of God's grace. This salvation is personally received by anyone who trusts in Christ's death, burial, and resurrection as the only means and all-sufficient payment for the penalty of their personal sins.

Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Titus 2:11

We are currently living in the dispensation of the grace of God. This was a mystery hid in God until He revealed it to the Apostle Paul. In this dispensation, God has temporarily set Israel aside and is forming the body of Christ as "one new man". We as members of the Body of Christ are not under the law or any of Israel's covenants.

Ephesians 3:1-5, Romans 11:11-12, 11:25, Ephesians 2:11-15

The Lord Jesus Christ will return, bodily, as the rightful ruler of heaven and earth. He will utilize the Body of Christ to carry out His authority in heaven, and He will utilize the believing nation of Israel to carry out His authority on earth.

Genesis 17:7-8, 2 Corinthians 5:1, Ephesians 1:10, Colossians 1:19-20

Our Purpose

Our Purpose as an assembly is twofold:
1) evangelize the community around us and
2) edify the saints of God.

Our effectiveness in this task is dependent on our overall understanding of the Bible. Therefore, to share the correct gospel and provide the right edification, we acknowledge that Paul is the apostle of the Gentiles (Romans 11:13). As such, he was commissioned with the gospel of grace based upon the preaching of the cross and was given the unique information regarding our current dispensation of grace (Ephesians 3:1-5, Colossians 1:25-27, 1 Corinthians 1:17-18).

We understand that each believer is an ambassador and called to minister to others as “ministers of reconciliation”  (2 Corinthians 5:17-20). We are to “make all men see the fellowship of the mystery” that was committed to the apostle Paul (Ephesians 3:9). We understand that Jesus came to Israel to fulfill His covenants and promises given to Israel, and that is recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (Matthew 15:24, John 1:11). However, as God turned from Israel unto the Gentiles, He revealed to Paul the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery (Romans 16:25). We understand that to be faithful to our commission, we must emphasize this “preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery”.
