VALUE 4 – COMMUNITY

Only God can create true gospel community, and He does it through his Word. At Grace Hill, we have a supernatural community that exists only because of the sovereign action of God. The gospel changes and shapes all our relationships. We are now united through Jesus Christ. We value community and place a high priority on personal relationships that disciple and hold one another accountable.

We live in a day where so many people search for transparent, genuine, and authentic relationships. Well, authentic community is achieved in the life of the church through covenant church membership. Through properly exercised church membership, God safeguards his gospel, protects the witness of the church, and stimulates healthy gospel community.

This community of people will covenant together as a church to live out the gospel. This means that discipleship, intentional relationships, and accountability must exist at Grace Hill for true gospel community to occur. Speaking the truth in love, doing life together, and unity around the gospel is what will make Grace Hill a God-honoring community. What brings us together – Jesus – is greater than what would pull us apart.

As a community, we will partake in the Lord’s Supper together, and watch the baptism of new members of this community. We will gather for corporate worship on Sundays and small groups throughout the week. We will strive to be a diverse and friendly gospel community welcoming people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. We belong to God, and we will love one another, pray for one another, serve and support one another, rejoice with one another, and bear the burdens of one another. As we live in community, we will point to the truth and power of the gospel.
