What "denomination" or what kind of church is the Graceview Church of Christ? We are not a denomination. We are a fellowship of Christians who want to understand and do the will of God. We do limit ourselves by the word of God; therefore, we do not want to interpret the word through "tradition-tinted" ideologies. We are bound to no human-made creeds or traditions nor, do we defend denominational practices or institutions. Our Lord expects us to look beyond historical positions and ideas which conflict with scripture. Consequently, we always ask, "What do precepts, principles, and precedents of scripture say to the situation?"
We take our commitment to the building up of the body of Christ seriously. This demands that we constantly recognize the tremendous diversity of gifts, and abilities and pertinent needs, within our family of faith. Rather than expecting the members of our body to fit into a predetermined program, we tailor the ministry of the church to fit the needs of our living and growing church community.
The diverse ministries of Graceview will offer growing believers the refreshment of mutual edification, just as a healthy body requires both challenge and refreshment. Through dynamic small group interaction and programs geared to special segments of our fellowship, edification of the body of Christ is a vital part of the life of Graceview.
The Bible is more than a storybook or a textbook -- it is a Life Book. Whether instructing youth or adults, our Christian education leadership uses methods and materials that will convey the Bible in a relevant and understandable style.
Our learning-integrated Bible school program extends well beyond the classroom and encourages children toward Christ-likeness in all their relationships with their peers. The program provides a setting for students ranging from middle school through college-age to prepare to make crucial life decisions. By learning from a Biblical perspective, hopefully the students will not be negatively influenced by their peers. Since they will be faced with pressure to conform to an artificial standard, it's imperative that students have a firm understanding of what is expected of them.
Our adult education opportunities will be "life changing." The classes will give parents, couples, family members and professionals the tools they need to live a victorious Christian life every day of the week.
