GRACE CITY DENVER IS A GOSPEL-CENTERED CHURCH
At Grace City, we gather throughout the week for different activities and groups – but our main gathering happens on Sunday mornings at 10AM down the road from the Stanley [Get directions]. Everyone is welcome. The dress is casual, so wear something comfortable. Feel free to grab a bagel and coffee or stop by the information table as you wait for the service to begin.
Our worship is both structured and spontaneous, both contemporary and historic. Our services last about an hour and a half, and include music, prayers, Scripture readings, communion and teaching that’s straight out of the Bible.
Following the service, we invite you to hang around, as most of us do, and make a new friend. Our Sunday gathering offers several age-appropriate children’s programs. Learn more about our 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 are small groups of 8-12 people that meet throughout the Denver area. Check out our calendar if you are looking for a time that works for your schedule. If you need help connecting contact us.
- Get in the Directory. One of the hardest things is putting a name and a face together. We make it easier with a mobile app directory. This is not a long term commitment but a way to be known and get to know others. Just fill out a card on the welcome table and drop it in the offering. We then follow up with getting a quick photo to go with the basic contact info.
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.
