Grace Community Church - "A Bible Teaching Ministry" | Dallas, PA

“A Bible Teaching Ministry”

Join Us for Sunday Worship

 

As historic evangelicals at Grace Community Church, we emphasize the full, final authority of the Bible alone and the urgency of salvation from sin by God's grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone to the glory of God alone.

 

We are not affiliated with any one denomination, but we cooperate and fellowship with many like-minded ministries throughout the world.

We believe that every true Christian receives Holy Spirit baptism upon conversion, that no two Christians must share any one gift in order to express the Holy Spirit's work in their lives, and that all the various gifts must be exercised in careful obedience to the Bible and in deference to God's sovereignty in distributing them.

Call us at 570-675-3723 to learn more about

our distinctive and

core values.

We practice expository Bible preaching and teaching, allowing the Bible to speak for itself to today's needs.

 

The text is carefully explained in relation to its original context and audience and then applied in a relevant manner to the modern audience.

GCC is the place for you.

We interpret the Bible from a dispensational theological perspective.

 

We believe that all human life, including that of the unborn, the elderly, and the critically ill, is sacred before God and should be treated accordingly.

 

We believe that primary leadership in the home and in the local church ought to be exercised by men, and that these men ought to act as Christ-like servant/leaders.

 

We believe that divorce and remarriage (except in cases of marital infidelity) are sinful before God.  At the same time, the church is there to welcome all forgiven and penitent people—regardless of marital status.

 

We believe that each person should accept his/her biological gender as an expression of God’s image.

 

We believe that God intends marriage to be a union between one man and one woman, and that all sexual expression ought to be enjoyed within the bonds of marriage alone.

 

We take biblical church discipline seriously in the case of those in the church who steadfastly refuse the loving correction of God's Word.

 

We desire to grow numerically only by faithfully, lovingly, urgently, and confrontationally proclaiming the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ to a sinful world.  We must not compromise the truth by "marketing" ourselves using a "feel-good" message which minimizes the cost of discipleship before those who are not yet a part of God‘s family.
