Welcome To Grace 

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)”
Welcome to Grace Fellowship Church. There are three things which we value and which are indicated by our name. Those three things are: Jesus, People, and Mission. The Grace of God is demonstrated through the person and work of Jesus Christ. We are a Fellowship of people changed by Jesus and who follow Him together. We pursue and love all people as having souls and being made in God’s image. Because we are a Church, we have a mission mandate from Jesus to make disciples until His return. We invite you to follow Jesus with us.
