One of the things that I love about my church family is everyone treats one another with grace, accepts one another with love, and welcomes one another with joy.

Proclaim | Prepare | Promote

Our Mission Statement

Graceway Church exists to Proclaim the Gospel, to Prepare Disciples, and to Promote the Love of Christ to Others.

Mark 16:15 – And Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to everyone.”

Matthew 28:19 – “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

Matthew 9:36-38 / When Jesus saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Engage | Evangelize | Equip | Encourage

Our Core Values

We accomplish our mission as we Engage Ongoing Culture, Evangelize Our Community, Equip Other Christians, and Encourage Outside Connection.

John 5:1 – After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

John 4:13-15 / Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”

1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 / For you know how, like a father with his children, we pleaded with you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.

Acts 2:46-47 / And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
