Who We Are

Grace & Peace Presbyterian Church (formerly Ethos Presbyterian Church) is a young church with an ancient message. We believe that we are much more sinful and broken than we ever imagined, but in Jesus Christ we are much more loved and accepted than we ever dared to hope. That message changes us and the world around us. We are committed preaching and practicing that message, and aligning ourselves with other Christian Churches who believe it as well. We are part of the Presbyterian Church in America (P.C.A.), the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, and the Gospel Coalition.

Our Values

Gospel-Centered

Gospel-Centered

We focus on the gospel of Jesus Christ in everything we do, because it is the power of God for salvation from beginning to end. By grace through faith in Jesus, we continually experience the transforming grace of God (Romans 1: 16-17; Ephesians 2: 8-10).

Impassioned Worship

Impassioned Worship

God’s grace transforms us into people who worship Him with our heads, our hearts and our hands through the Holy Spirit. It also empowers us to live as living sacrifices for Him (Colossians 3: 16-17; Romans 12: 1-2).

Restorative Community

Restorative Community

As we are transformed through the gospel and through worship, we use our heads, hands and hearts to be instruments of restoration for others (Romans 12: 1-2; Mark 8: 22-26).

Our Mission Statement

Grace changes everything. God’s unmerited kindness to us in Jesus Christ that changes our relationship with God, with others, with ourselves, and in creation. As we experience his grace, we seek to express his grace to the world around us through the proclamation of the gospel, worship and community. We want to see God’s grace change everything so that the glory of God covers the earth as the waters cover the sea.

Why Grace & Peace?

 

Grace & Peace are major themes throughout the whole Bible. God’s grace is his unmerited kindness to us through Christ Jesus. It brings peace with God, peace with others, peace within ourselves, and ultimately it will bring peace to all of creation. It reflects our desire to be a gospel centered community that welcomes people from all backgrounds and introduces them to the transforming grace of God.

Our Logo

The crown represents the grace we experience through King Jesus and the dove represents the peace we experience through King Jesus. The two are inseparable. God’s grace brings His peace.

Our Statement Of Faith

Roots

We affirm the central truths of historic Reformed and Biblical Christian faith, seeing ourselves in a long line of generations taking part in the endless conversation between God and people.

Community

We value the image of God in all people, everywhere. We believe that we were created to live deeply with one another; carrying each other’s burdens, sharing our resources, praying for and confessing our sins to each other, suffering and celebrating together.

Redemption

We trust that God wants to bring about a new humanity by redeeming every part of us. We embrace the salvation Jesus offers as the only hope for the healing of our relationships with God, each other, ourselves, and creation.

Serving

We believe that Jesus is God in human form, and that the church is God’s ongoing presence in the world. Led by the Spirit of God, we are passionate about relieving suffering and fighting injustice by joining with God in living out the message of Jesus.

Calling

We have great confidence that God will restore all of creation under the authority of Christ. We believe that every church has to ask the question: “How are we called to live out that future reality today?”

Celebrating

We take great joy in partnering with God to change the world, embracing the truth that all of life is sacred, hope is real and that tomorrow can be better than today. We celebrate the divine in the daily, pursue lives of hope, reflect gratitude, and renew ourselves in worship.
