do we exist?
Grace Church of Marin exists to make the Gospel
of Jesus Christ known in Marin County and, through
it, the world.
do we hope to accomplish?
We seek to tell and embody the transforming story of the historic Christian
faith a story of mercy, peace, and hope that brings about changed
lives, social healing, and cultural renewal in Marin.
will make our vision a reality?
We seek to honor God for all of his worth by crafting worship services that
are both rooted in Scripture and the historic Christian faith and relevant
to Marin; that are both edifying to the committed worshiper and engaging to
the curious and skeptical seeker; that are both excellently prepared and dependently
postured on Gods living Spirit.
We seek to form partnerships with social service providers in order to create
opportunities to extend both mercy and social justice to those who are hurting
and disadvantaged in Marin. The extension of our service will seek to restore
the weak (compassion), to re-neighbor our divided neighborhoods (community),
to reclaim Gods heart for his creation (conservation), and to redeem
our experiences with goodness, beauty, and truth (culture).
We seek to boldly and humbly posture ourselves to Marinthrough organic
and intentional relationships with our neighbors, colleagues, and friends with
whom we live, work, and playin a way that will help the curious and
skeptical seeker feel intrigued, invited, and included in various venues for
conversation and discussion about Christianity.
We seek to create a welcoming and vibrant community by developing dynamic gatherings
in which people can discover and practice Christianity, cultivate meaningful
and supportive relationships, and receive pastoral care. Through these experiences
and relationships we seek to mobilize people to serve, train new leaders, multiply
our community presence, and promote Christian ethics in the marketplace in
order to cast a broad net of love over our county.
We seek to teach the Scriptures, offer the Sacraments (Baptism and Communion),
and superintend the governance of our church in an intelligible and compelling
manner that exalts God, edifies the committed worshiper, and engages the curious
and skeptical seeker.
We seek to build relationships with existing churches and develop new churches
in order that the Bay Area would enjoy more of Gods mercy, peace, and
