Purpose

For God’s glory, Grace Presbyterian Church exists to worship God, to share Christ’s grace and power with the Chelsea community and beyond, and to disciple individuals, families, and this church toward the completion of His Kingdom.

Vision

The Vision of Grace Presbyterian Church Chelsea is to be characterized by excellence in the following areas:

WORSHIP

By the grace of God and for His glory through Christ our Savior and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we intend to be characterized by a mindset and practice of worshipful intimacy with God as individual members, as families, and as a corporate church body. We will be faithful users of the ordinary means of grace as we live in the fellowship of the commonality of our relationship with Christ. In the function of this worshipful life, we intend to be guided by the sufficiency of the Bible alone.

PRAYER

By the grace of God and for His glory through Christ our Savior and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we intend that our worshipful intimacy with Him be strengthened and deepened through the practice of communing prayer, kingdom focused prayer, and prayer for the supply of daily needs (in that order of importance) as individuals, as families, and as a church.

DISCIPLESHIP

By the grace of God and for His glory through Christ our Savior and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we intend to be such maturing disciples of Christ that the fruit of the Spirit will be the noticeable and descriptive factors of our character as individuals, as families, and as a church. This progress in discipleship will be the result of serious study of the Word of God for knowing Him more deeply and for function in everything by the leading of the Holy Spirit through His Word, the Bible.

LOVING RELATIONSHIPS

By the grace of God and for His glory through Christ our Savior and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we intend to be marked by loving relationships characterized by speaking the truth in love, by pursuing each other’s welfare in the Lord, and by living consistently repentant and forgiving lives in Him according to His Word, the Bible.

OUTREACH

By the grace of God and for His glory through Christ our Savior and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we intend to be characterized as givers of the Gospel to each other and to the lost, functional givers of the fruit of our giftedness as provided to each individual by the Holy Spirit, and givers of money and other material goods, even sacrificially, for each other’s welfare and for the spread of the Gospel to the ends of the earth according to the standard established by Christ in the Bible.
