GRACE CITY DENVER IS A GOSPEL-CENTERED CHURCH
Our congregation is on the younger side, but it’s also diverse and everyone is welcome. The dress is casual. Follow the sidewalk signage to our front entrance on Park Avenue where you’ll be welcomed by our greeters. Just inside the foyer, stop by the welcome desk for some info about upcoming events and other resources. Feel free to grab a free cup of fresh-brewed Jubilee coffee from our refreshments cart or stop by their shop next door for your speciality coffee and breakfast. There are no assigned seats, so please sit anywhere you’re comfortable. You’ll never be singled out as a guest – but after the service, we have a voluntary “Introductions” meeting where we’d love to connect you with one of our staff for a few minutes to answer any questions you may have!
Our worship is both structured and spontaneous, both contemporary and historic. Our services generally last about an hour and a quarter, and include music, prayers, Scripture readings, communion, and practical teaching that’s straight out of the Bible.
Our Sunday gathering offers age-appropriate children’s programs just across the hallway from the auditorium in our amazing Grace Kids space. Learn more about GraceKids.
Here are some next steps we ask that you take:
- Give Us 6 weeks to get a feel for what we are about.
- Join a Gospel Community Group. These small groups are all about developing real friendship and applying the Good News of Jesus to everyday life. Groups of 8 to 15 people meet weekly throughout Denver to share conversation, prayer, and meals. Groups are open to everyone, regardless of age or stage of life. Contact us to find out more about groups in your area.
- Participate in a Service Project or Outreach. Community engagement is about loving and serving our city, especially the marginalized, in tangible ways. Any given month, we might be serving families from the inner city school up the block, hosting a community meal, or blessing our neighbors with free clothing/shoes/cold weather gear, toiletries, haircuts, and more.
Our vision is to be a centrally-located, inclusive church that intentionally pursues younger generations and takes the Gospel to the everyday street level where our neighbors live, work, gather, and create.
Our core values are expressed by the acronym GRACE.
Gospel-Centeredness: We value the Good News of Jesus Christ and depend on it to give shape, power, and purpose to all that we are and do.
Rule of Scripture: We value the Bible, understood in its original sense and faithfully applied to contemporary culture, as our final authority in all areas of our faith and practice.
Authentic Community: We value the intentional sharing of our lives with one another in the formation of a distinctively Christian community of faith.
Continuing Transformation: We value the lifelong, life-changing process of growth through the power of God’s Spirit.
Engagement: We value the active, purposeful participation of every believer in worshiping, serving, and sharing Christ.
God desires to be known, therefore we commit to faithfully study, teach, and obey the Bible, where He reveals Himself and His will directly.
God is Father, Son, and Spirit in One, therefore we embrace diversity, unity, and fellowship as essential components of our life together.
God is the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, therefore we gladly welcome His preeminence, providence, and provision in our lives.
God is the substitute Savior, therefore we celebrate the Good News of Jesus Christ as the source of our salvation, the center of our worship, and the heart of our discipleship.
God is the indwelling Spirit, therefore we depend on His active presence to empower, guide, and transform our lives into the image of Christ.
God is unconditionally loving and undeservedly kind, therefore we strive to be a culture of patience, forgiveness, generosity, compassion, and enthusiastic welcome.
God is righteous and holy, therefore we set ourselves apart to Him, pursuing lives of radical nonconformity to the world, the flesh, and false religion.
God has accepted us by free grace, therefore we reject legalistic performance and condemnation in favor of a culture of repentance, faith, and grateful submission.
God is our Champion, therefore we eagerly invite our neighbors to hear and experience the benefits of His victory with us.
A good summary of our Christian faith is found in the Nicene Creed.
