Position Papers

The need for churches to be clear about what they believe the Scriptures to teach is great. The pastors and leaders at Grace take this responsibility very seriously. It is our desire to be as clear as possible with God's word. Below are two, of what we envision to be several, position papers clarifying what we believe the Scriptures to teach.
