The mission of Grace is to welcome our neighbors, to grow together in Christ, and serve God in our community and world. This mission, rooted in Christ's Great Commission and Great Commandment (Matthew 28:18-20; 22:36-40), flows out of our fundamental belief that the grace of God, in Jesus Christ, changes everything.
Our vision is to change the landscape of the North Shore with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To be a church where women and men, boys and girls are meeting Jesus for the first time and growing in love for God and other people. We want to see lives changed by the Gospel. We want to see the North Shore changed. And through the North Shore, contribute to the healing of Chicago. And through Chicago, have a Gospel impact on the world.
Grace Presbyterian Church finds her roots in the historic creeds of the world-wide church. More specifically, we are Presbyterians. Presbyterians join in faith and practice through the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. The Westminster Confession was produced in the 17th century in England. It was written by hundreds of pastors and elders who met over a period of several years. The goal was to unite the church of Jesus by a unified expression of doctrine, worship, and church government. Though the language of this creed is antiquated it remains an incredibly helpful resource for the church as we look forward to see God's continued work in and through his people.
