Greater Grace Church

The Place Where Life Is Better.

Greater Grace Church was born from a desire to spread the love and ministry of Jesus Christ. We are a loving, growing, and welcoming church that believes in worshipping God in Spirit and in Truth.

Why Greater Grace?

Greater Grace is more than a building—we are a family. Our church was formed to do ministry differently. As Pastor Griffinalways says, “We care more about souls than clothes.”

You Belong here

Considering checking out Greater Grace? We know visiting a new church for the firsttime can be somewhat intimidating. That’s why we strive to create an experience that feels more like a family reunion in God’s house than a gathering of strangers.

Greater Grace Church is all about people and we never want you to feel like a number. When you arrive you will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. God is preparing to do a great work in your life and we are excited that you’ve decided to make our church family a part of your walk with God.

Grace everywhere

Ministry can not be confined to just four walls—something we have seen ring true over the course of the last year. As society changes, the church must grow and evolve with it. And thus the Greater Grace Ministry continues to strive to break down the walls of tradition and launch out into the deep. No matter where you are, you can be part of the Greater Grace family. Join us from your phone, television, or even desktop with Grace Everywhere. From The Grace Encounter to Grace Academy to Word on Wednesday, we offer many chances and ways for you to engage in the study of God’s Word.

Grace Everywhere is not just about our presence on social media. It represents every encounter each of our members makes in our efforts to expand the kingdom beyond the four walls of The Place of Grace. For us it not about the number of people we reach but the quality of the impact we make in their lives. For we understand that the heart of ministry is love. The Great Commission admonishes us to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen,” (Matthew 28:19-20). And as we go out in to the world declaring the Gospel, we pray that the love of Jesus Christ is experienced by all we encounter.
