Our Mission

Abounding Grace Christian Church exists to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with everyone – from the curious to believers seeking a new church home, and everyone in between.


We fulfill this purpose through our Christ-centered mission: to reach our community with the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ; to explain not just what we believe, but why we believe it and how to apply it for successful living; to encourage and strengthen followers of Jesus so that our lives reflect our faith in all things; to build up the members of the Body of Christ in their gifts, skills, and talents which enables them to minister to others; and to provide a foundation for believers to defend our faith in a way that is honest and loving.


If this is a mission you can get behind, we hope you’ll come for a visit – we’d love to have you with us. 

Our Beliefs

AGCC is a non-denominational Christian Church that upholds the Bible as our standard of faith and practice. That means we look first to scripture to guide and inform what we believe and how we apply these beliefs in our daily lives as believers.


Here are few foundational tenets of faith that directly impact how we worship, serve, and fellowship at church. We are an Evangelical Church, which means we believe in the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ who died for humanity’s sin and rose again from the dead to bring forgiveness and deliverance to those who will turn from sin and believe (Acts 2:38-39; Acts 20:20-21).


We are also a Pentecostal/Charismatic Church, which means we believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as described in Acts 1:4-5 and Acts 2:1-4, and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as mentioned in I Corinthians 12:1-11.  We also believe the following:

We believe that the Holy Bible (39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament) is the only inspired, unfailing and complete written Word of God. It is the revelation of God’s plan for man, superior to conscience and reason, though not contrary to reason.


2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21.

We believe that God is One, eternally expressed in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of everything that exists but was Himself not created by anyone. He is the Source of all that is good, the Master of all creation, and the perfect, holy, and righteous Judge of all the free creatures He has made. Besides Him there is no other god in heaven or earth.


Matthew 28:19; John 14:9-16;  Acts 2:33;  Romans 1:20;  Colossians 2:9; 1 John 5:6-8.

We believe the only hope for man is to believe on Jesus Christ, the virgin born Son of God, fully God, fully man, equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He is the second Person of the Trinity and is the central figure of the Christian faith.  He is without beginning and is known in eternity past as the Living Word. The Bible teaches that through Him, the Father made the universe and all that is in it. He is the One who has accomplished and executes what the Father has planned.


John 1:1, 14; Colossians 1:13-17; Hebrews 1:2-3; 1 John 1:1-2.

We believe in the Deity and Personhood of the Holy Spirit. He proceeds from the Father and the Son and works actively as God’s agent on the earth today. His mission is to convict the world of sin, create and secure believers in Christ, and empower the Church to grow in grace and manifest God’s Kingdom on the earth.  We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers when they receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and empowers us to live a Christian life.  We also believe in a subsequent experience, which is available to every Christian called the baptism in the Holy Spirit.  The primary initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the speaking in other languages (tongues) according to the Scriptures.  


Luke 11:13; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 5:3-4; Acts 8:17; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 12; 2 Timothy 1:14.

We believe that God, who is rich in mercy, has chosen from eternity to restore fallen humanity to Himself by providing salvation for all through faith in the sacrifice of His own Son. God gave Jesus to die for our sins and shed His blood as full payment for the sins of the human race. God calls people to Himself through the preaching of the Gospel, the work of the Holy Spirit, and the gift of His Grace.  No one can take credit in any way for his own salvation. It is a gift of God (John 6:37-40; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:4-10, 1 Timothy 4:10).  A person is saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and not by his own works or efforts. 

God created man to exist forever. Man will either spend his eternal existence with God through forgiveness and salvation or separated from God because of sin. Eternal union with God is heaven. Eternal separation from God is hell. Heaven and Hell are actual places of eternal existence. 


John 3:16-18; John 14:1-4; Revelation 20:11-14

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, both universal and local, and is composed of individuals who through faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Christ Jesus is the Head of the Church. The mission of the Church is worship, evangelism, discipleship and the nurturing and care of one another.


Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-22.

We believe in the calling and gifting of various ministries of the Church, including but not limited to apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. We believe that the Church has responsibility for recognizing, equipping and commissioning these various ministries for the edification of the Body of Christ.


Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Ephesians 4:11-13.

We believe that Christ’s death on the cross provides supernatural healing for our physical bodies (Isaiah 53:3-5; Matthew 8:17). Healing may be experienced through various methods:

  • The exercise of faith in Bible promises (Mark 11:24)
  • The laying on of hands (Mark 16:15-18)
  • The anointing of oil and prayer of faith by church elders (James 5:14)
  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:1-10)
  • The transfer of healing anointing (Acts 19:11-12)

Faith in God’s supernatural healing power does not mean we cannot use natural and medicinal remedies. We acknowledge that there are mysteries surrounding the reception of healing by the believer and the administration of it through the Church. The Church is still learning how to walk fully in all that the Bible promises. Failure to receive healing in this lifetime is not necessarily a result of unbelief or personal sin. However, it is the right of every believer to resist sickness as an enemy and to actively trust God for life and health.

We believe in two ordinances of the Church.  The first is Water Baptism – This is a symbolic act to publicly give testimony of one’s salvation.  This is commanded by God but our salvation is not reliant upon it.  We practice full immersion baptism, symbolizing our participation in Christ’s death and resurrection. The second ordinance is Holy Communion – Communion allows us to participate in the command of Jesus to do this in remembrance of Him.  This act connects us with Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, which was done for our deliverance and forgiveness from sin. 


Acts 2:38; Matthew 26:26-30.

We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the consummation of the Kingdom of God and the restitution of all things spoken by the mouth of all the prophets since the world began.


Matthew 24:42-44; Acts 1:11; Acts 3:19-20;

1 Thessalonians. 4:15-18
