Since our beginning in 1954, Grace Missionary Church has sought to live out the gospel within our community, aiming to meet spiritual, relational, and physical needs of individuals and families. Though our church looks different than when we first began, our focus remains consistent: to be a place where all people belong, where all people learn to believe, and where all people are being transformed by the grace of Jesus.

This focus, along with our mission, gives shape to our vision as a church family: to be disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus in Celina and beyond.

Who are disciples of Jesus? Anyone who has put their life and hope in Jesus, who have come to believe and receive Him as their Savior, and who strive to live from His teaching, fullness, and Spirit. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus commissioned His disciples to carry on the mission that He first began. Today, disciples of Jesus are still charged to carry on and complete the mission that He started, until He returns again in glory. Therefore, the mission of Grace Missionary is the mission of Jesus: As the Father has sent Me, I also send you. Go and make disciples of all peoples (John 20:21, Matthew 28:19-20).
At Grace, we seek to live out this vision and mission through opportunities which allow us to abide in Jesus, grow as a family, and connect with our neighbors.
Our relationship with God
Our relationships with
those in Christ

What we believe

The Bible is the inerrant, divinely inspired Word of God, and authoritative in all matters it addresses.

There is only one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - who is the creator and sustainer of all things.

Jesus Christ is truly God and truly human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was resurrected, and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. Jesus is coming again in power and glory for His believing church. Jesus Christ is the only Savior of mankind.

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, bringing to new life all who repent of their sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved. The Holy Spirit sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides, and comforts all who believe.

Salvation is the result of one's genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the repentant, makes them a participant of the divine nature, and gives peace with God and one another. A person is saved by grace through faith, and not the result of works; however, salvation is evidenced in life by one's Christ-likeness and spiritual fruit.

We believe in the invisible and universal Church as the living Body of Christ. It is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally untied by faith to Christ, who is the living Head and sovereign Lord of the Church.

We believe there are two Christian ordinances: baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality.

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.
