Gracehill Community Church | Dallas TX

Gracehill DNA

God Centered: Everything we do at Gracehill is centered around God and His purposes. We are not asking God to bless what we are doing. We are asking God if we can be a part of the really cool things He is doing around the world.
(Ex. 20:1-6, Ps. 18; Matt. 22:37-40)

Relevant: We desire to gain an understanding of our culture and how to present the good news in a way that is pertinent to the times in which we live. All of our teaching, studying, serving and relational activities are opportunities to connect to God and others in ways that are applicable to our daily lives.
(I Chron. 12:32; I Cor. 9:19-23)

Authentic Community: As followers of Christ, we yearn to grow in full devotion to Him and His cause. We believe life-change and spiritual growth occur best in the context of small groups which grow over time and multiply.
(Acts 2:42-43; Heb. 5:13-14; Eph. 4:14-16)

Changed Lives: The life, death and resurrection of Christ have the power to change lives. At Gracehill a win for us is seeing Jesus change people, one life at a time. As lives are changed, families are changed and our city will be transformed.
(John 5:24, 10:10; 2 Cor. 3:18)

Excellence: If we give our best for our people, how much more should we pursue excellence with God? Gracehill does not settle for less than excellence. We are not seeking perfection, but giving our best effort in serving God. We set standards that raise the bar for everyone. God expects our best, not what is left over.
(Malachi 1:7,8; I Cor. 3:9-15)

Helping others discover Christ: We won’t be content until we have extended God’s love and hope to every person we can possibly reach with the saving message of Jesus Christ. The unchurched and unconnected are our highest priority. Lost people matter to God, therefore they matter to us.
(Matt. 28:18-20; I Corinthians 9:19-23)

Intentional Serving: We believe every person is uniquely gifted by God to serve somewhere in ministry. The staff exists to help equip, empower and release all people to fulfill the ministries of the church by using their gifts. Our greatest calling is to serve those outside the walls of our church whom Jesus called “the least of these.” For this reason we share our resources—both time and treasures—in mission.
(Matt. 25:31-46; Eph. 4:11-16; I Pet. 4:10-11)

Lending a Hand: Our ministries are designed to meet the felt needs of people. If a ministry is not meeting needs, it will cease to exist. We desire to minister to the “whole person”, including spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. “Find a need and meet it!”
(Isaiah 58:11-12; Romans 12: 4-13; I John 3:16-18)

Leading with Biblical Truth: We believe that the Bible is our roadmap for life. The Bible is taught and memorized in a multitude of settings including the Sunday Morning Experience, Connection Groups, Bible studies, and is demonstrated through our lives.
(Deut. 6:4-9; 2 Tim. 3:16- 4:5)
