Grace Church’s Vision and Culture - What We Believe

Grace Church — where Jesus changes lives

Who are we?

We are a growing, diverse community of Christians who meet as one church in multiple locations.

To know, love and worship our Heavenly Father and to see Jesus change thousands of lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our Mission

To make disciples, serve our communities, plant new congregations and reach other nations.


Our Culture

We are on a journey to develop a culture characterised by:

  • Grace
  • God’s presence
  • Honour
  • Belonging
  • Growth
  • Generosity

GRACE

As sons and daughters of God the Father, receiving and displaying His free and lavish grace, both in the church and in bringing hope to a broken world.

“Jesus...came from the Father, full of grace and truth”

John 1 v 14

GOD’S PRESENCE

Worshipping God and pursuing His presence in our lives and meetings, and using the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the Glory of God.

“My presence shall go with you...”

Exodus 33 v 14

HONOUR

Honouring God and honouring each other according to the incredible value that God places on us.

“Outdo each other in showing honour”

Romans 12 v 10

BELONGING

A diverse family on a mission enjoying authentic relationships and seeing every person accepted as a valued part of the body and with a role to play.

“you are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it”

1 Corinthians 12 v 27

GROWTH

Personal growth in discipleship as we learn to think and live more like Jesus.

Identifying and growing empowered leaders to serve throughout the church and our community.

Seeing thousands of lives changed by Jesus.

“go and make disciples of all nations”

Matthew 28 v 19

GENEROSITY

Receiving and sharing God’s generosity to us through our heart attitudes, time and finances.

“...be generous and willing to share”

1 Timothy 6 v 18

Newfrontiers

Grace Church is part of something larger than itself, Newfrontiers, a network of church families all holding to the same values that shape and define us as we take the good news of Jesus to different parts of the globe.

Where We’ve Come From

In 2003 a small group of twenty-five ordinary people and their families, a number of whom moved to the area from a Newfrontiers church in Bournemouth, came together to start a Newfrontiers church in Salisbury. We’re a people who are passionate about Jesus and seeing Him change and impact lives.

The church has grown, moving to larger venues and now around 180-200 people meet every Sunday morning to share in worship, Bible teaching and spending time together.

We have a strong and vibrant kids work, youth group and Mobilise (18-30’s) group.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
