We call ourselves
Grace Christian Reformed Church
GRACE - Signifies the favor, kindness, and love of God to sinners through Jesus Christ. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--(Ephesians 2:8)
We are CHRISTIAN because we are a part of the church of Jesus Christ. We confess Jesus Christ the Lord as our Savior from sin, and Lord of our lives. "Therfore...be assured of this: God has made this Jesus whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." (Acts 2:36) "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household." (Acts 16:30)
We are REFORMED because we further identify with the Protestant Reformation as it took form through Martin Luther and John Calvin. We believe the Bible is God's inspired Word, and that the doctrines and practices of the Protestant Reformers point us toward the true and right perspective on the Bible and our faith.
And we are a CHURCH because we have been brought together by God's Spirit, committing ourselves to mutual support and to shared service in the community where Christ has placed us.
