What Do I Wear?
What to wear should never be an issue when you are thinking about attending worship services at Grace! God isn’t worried about what you wear, and neither are we. All of our services have a causal element to them, so suits and ties are not necessary — jeans are fine! Seahawk game day? Wear your blue and green — you won’t be alone!
We practice “open communion.” Jesus liked to eat meals with everybody, with all kinds of people. Believing in Christ, you are welcome to this religious meal of Jesus. You don’t need to belong to a particular congregation or denomination. Bring your children to receive a blessing. If wine is not appropriate for you, ask for grape juice. If you feel uncomfortable with receiving communion, relax and enjoy the music.
What We Believe
- God is real.
- Everyone matters to God.
- Human beings are created in the image of God.
- All human beings have sinned and fall short of God’s holy perfection.
- In divine compassion, Jesus Christ became the bridge between a holy God and a fallen humanity.
- Human lives are saved by God’s grace through faith alone, not human actions, abilities or achievements.
- God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- God created everything in the universe.
- Jesus Christ was fully God and fully human.
- Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God.
- Jesus Christ lived (incarnation), died (crucifixion), and overcame death (resurrection).
- Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.
- The Holy Spirit is God’s real and active presence in the world.
- The Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God.
- The church is the communal expression of Christ’s presence in the world.
- God has a particular concern for the physically and spiritually impoverished. So should we.
- The church should be relevant to today’s culture and reverent to its historical foundations.
- All of God’s people–regardless of background, gender, ethnicity, or age–are gifted for ministry.
Most of all…we believe that God’s arms of love and grace are wide open for you!
