Mission and Values

Mission Statement

We exist because the grace of God made evident in our lives enables us to make the grace of God evident to the world. We hope to do that through community, worship, and service

Core Values

  1. Worship – There is no higher or more important thing that we do at Evident Grace than worship.  We meet each Sunday at 10:00am at Ron Rosner YMCA prayerfully and in humility.  We have a relaxed but reverent worship style, so come as you are. We focus our preaching on books of the Bible, beginning at verse 1 and moving towards the end.  If we do tackle a topic, we do it in the context of scripture. All of our teaching is rooted in the Bible and we believe in Jesus Christ as the only Savior for sinners who are alienated from God.  You can listen to any of our sermons here. Our music is intended to reflect the generations present while honoring the generations prior.  We also place a high value on Baptism and the Lord’s Supper hoping and trying to enjoy those graces of God as much as possible.  These times of worship then launch us into service and enable us to grow our community.
  2. Community – Community is essential to what we hope to do at Evident Grace.  We seek to grow that community in several practical ways.  Our community grows in teaching, which happens in worship, our homes (EG Groups), in our men’s studies (Bushiban), and our women’s studies (kafasoto).    We also hope that our community grows in the practical gatherings of our folks each week as they meet in homes, workplaces, and in the gathering places of our city.  You’ll find Evident Grace an incredibly friendly community, and we seek to spend time together and to constantly open our lives to new folks who walk in the door.  But as much as possible, we desire to grow our community through our two other core values:  worship and service.
  3. Service – Our service to one another and our service to the community around us reflects our value of community and worship.  What better way to demonstrate our love of community than by serving those in and outside of our community?  We hope to serve our area to such an extent that if we ever closed our doors, our neighbors would ask, “What are we going to do now?”  Doing these things are one of the primary way in which we seek to worship Jesus.

We are a part of the Presbyterian Church in America. As such, the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms contain our system of doctrine. You can find these documents in PDF format here. We are convinced that they accurately describe the system of doctrine contained in the Bible.
