Our Mission: To be regional church for Dubois and Pike county and
beyond that helps people cherish the Gospel and stand in awe of God.
Our Vision: To serve people in our region helping them see the glory of God (worship), the gospel of Christ (theology),
and love for people (relationships) come together to make followers of Jesus who joyously stand in awe of God.
We will worship the Lord together by loving, growing and joyfully serving to make worshiping followers of Christ. We will
proclaim and minister the Gospel for God’s pleasure and glory. (I Cor.1:24, Eph. 4:1-7, Matthew 28:18-20, Eph. 4: 11-16, I Cor. 10:31)
The Benefits of a New Church
Two thirds of the people in our area do not attend church. A new church often helps un-churched people connect with a church and become followers of Christ.
A good church announces and explains the good news of what Jesus has done so people can be forgiven. Only then can they enjoy God’s favor now, then immediately be with Him in Heaven when they die.
The reality that Jesus came to earth to bear the wrath of God for the sins of each person who will trust Him is great news. Jesus is our substitute! He took the curse that belongs to us sinners. Churches need to explain this to people. This is the reason people become committed followers of Jesus Christ.
But, churches are made of people and people are different. They have personalities, gifting, and values that vary. Each Church reaches different people because each church has a personality too.
There is obvious variation in doctrine within churches but the priority and importance given to the Bible and Bible study varies in churches too. So does the priority of relationships and community. Plus, honestly, we all know different churches have strengths and weaknesses in our ministries. Some just explain and live out the gospel of Christ better than others.
More churches mean more choices and the greater possibility for un-churched people to attend a church that helps prepare for the eternity we each inevitably face.
If our area has more gospel explaining and Bible teaching churches then there will be more growing and loving followers of Christ. When more people follow Jesus and love like He loves, joy increases and everyone wins!
We want as many people as possible to become followers of Jesus, especially our young people. We imagine you might too.
Grace and Truth Church will strive to worship the Lord together by loving, growing, and serving joyfully to make worshiping disciples of Christ by proclaiming and ministering the Gospel for God’s pleasure and glory. (I Cor.1:24, Eph. 4:1-7, Matthew 28:18-20, Eph. 4: 11-16, I Cor. 10:31)
Our strategy to become this church is to pursue ministry revolving around:
Joy and Worship Making Disciples Loving The Gospel
Grace Together The Glory and Pleasure of God
We are passionate about a regional church in Southwest Indiana where the glory of God (worship), the gospel of Christ (theology), and love for people (relationships), come together to make followers of Jesus who joyously stand in awe of God
