Grace Evangelical Church meets on the south-side of Indianapolis and teaches God’s Word that those attending might love God, love others and make disciples.
Our purpose is to glorify God by means of:
- Presenting Jesus Christ as the only solution for man’s spiritual dilemma.
- Presenting God’s Word as sufficient for all challenges;Providing a Christ-centered ministry through teaching, worship, fellowship and spiritual growth;
- Preparing people to stand firm in a difficult world and to have spiritually strong, joyful and productive life;
- Providing a weekly time of worship, prayer and small group opportunities.
Grace Evangelical Church believes in seven core values as our purpose. These values describe what we do and our strategy for living. Two values are foundational and five rest on the first two. If these values are true for you, we invite you to join us.
The first two values are the foundation of our church.
Jesus Christ is Lord—
We value a vibrant and personal relationship with our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are set apart for a love relationship with the resurrected Jesus Christ.
Our relationship with Jesus results from an intimate and daily walk with Him.
As we personally and corporately submit to Jesus as Lord, He will complete His work in us.
God’s Word is all Sufficient—
We value God’s Word as the source of absolute truth to transform lives.
God’s inspired Word teaches, reproves, corrects and trains us for every good work.
Clear biblical teaching is the catalyst for personal and corporate transformation.
God’s Word is sufficient to deal with all problems
