OUR MISSION and vision
Every church has a mission, an aim for its worship services and other activities. At Grantham Church, we have developed our mission over more than 100 years, building on the actions and examples of those who came before us. We are rooted in history but with a firm desire to make a difference in the future. We are proud to carry out this mission as we:
WORSHIP GOD JOYFULLY
Be happy in worship. Feel blessed in opportunities. Raise your arms and be glad. Exult in the Lord. We believe worship is a joyful experience. Embrace and experience it fully by giving yourself to God.
FOLLOW JESUS FAITHFULLY
Jesus is our living role model, the flesh and blood embodiment of what everyone in the church strives to be. We do not waver in our commitment to his principles.
CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER GRACIOUSLY
Community plays a huge role in our church. Whether we help someone who’s been sick care for their yard or participate in small groups where we get to know new people, we value making connections with others.
WELCOME ALL PEOPLE WARMLY
Our desire to reveal our faith knows no bounds. We put no limits on who we receive to our services and events. We enjoy the chance to learn from others with different experiences from our own. Mission work and outreach are cornerstones of Brethren in Christ.
SHARE GOD'S RECONCILING LOVE AND GRACE GLOBALLY
We reach out to those across cultures to share our joy in Jesus and encourage others to do the same. We believe this is the greatest gift you can give or receive.
