WHO WE ARE

Grace exists to Gather the convinced and unconvinced into community, where we Grow as Jesus does His work of forgiving and renewing, and we Go out to live for a story bigger than ourselves.

OUR MISSION

GATHER

GATHER

Gathering takes place through Sunday worship, community groups and affinity groups, as well as a variety of other venues, large and small. Gathering was the instinct of the early church because the Christian life is a community project.  Even if you’re not yet a Christian, gathering with other Christians is vital, because “Belonging often happens before believing.”

GROW

GROW

The work of Jesus takes place as we worship, pray, cry, serve, love, help, celebrate, and encourage one another. By His Spirit, we are transformed, becoming more like what God intended humanity to be.

 

GO

GO

We are blessed to be a blessing, which means that followers of Jesus are to be “IN the world, not OF the world, but FOR the world”.  God’s ultimate goal is to make “all things new”, but He wants us to bring the hope of new creation into the “here and now” – in our neighborhoods and in our schools, at the coffee shops and at the bars, with our families and where we work, throughout Silicon Valley and to the world.

OUR STORY

Grace Church was established in 2000, desiring to be a community centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ and committed to His mission.  In 2010, Grace launched a second site in the San Jose area and continued as a multi-site church until November of 2018, when that second site became its own congregation, Grace South Bay.

OUR TEAM

There are many layers of leadership at Grace, including pastors, elders, and diaconal mercy team members, as well as numerous lay volunteers who play absolutely vital roles in serving and leading us with their gifts. In addition, we have several full-time and part-time Staff who are characterized by a spirit of cooperation and mutual support for the sake of fulfilling our mission.
