living in the freedom of God’s grace…
walking in faith and trusting God...
expecting the supernatural...
Freedom of Grace is a Christ-Centered, contemporary, non-denominational church. Our focus is Christ and how He has given the believer new life and an identity that can only be found in the personal and individual revelation of Him (Revelationship © 2016). It is in this awesome relationship with Christ that our members find the Grace to live a Godly life so entangled with Christ that it manifests freedom (freedom from sin, freedom from guilt, freedom from shame, and freedom from condemnation)! In like manner, this Grace empowers the believer to soar, rule and reign in life; Releasing and exciting their faith in the present and strengthening their hope for the future while propelling them forward to discover God's purposes and plans of good for their life.
The aim of our ministry is to address the needs of the people in a practical manner. Through discipleship (making disciples) and a community oriented ministry, we are able to be a resource to our members and the community we serve (locally, nationally and worldwide).
We are a community of believers blessed of God in every way (Spirit, Soul, and Body). We experience the whole of Christ's salvation and are carriers of His life. As a result we are complete, perfect and whole in Him! There is nothing missing, nothing lacking and nothing broken in our lives. We are empowered to prosper and have the authority to effect change in heaven and earth. We are led by God's Spirit; Therefore, we are sons of God, have an inheritance, and operate in the authority of sonship!
We will be the hands and feet of Jesus, touching our community and demonstrating the Love and Grace of God in a tangible way. Accordingly, we will address the specific needs of individuals and families through frequent Church Services, Bible Studies, Intercessory Prayer, Counseling and Missions (locally, nationally and worldwide).
When we show up, Christ shows up. Therefore, God's love shows up, healing for the sick shows up, provision for the hungry shows up, freedom for the tormented shows up, and salvation for the lost shows up. We are channels of blessings for others! We are sowers! Therefore, we are abundantly supplied because God gives seed to the sower! Christ has freed us and we are free indeed! We live in and are active demonstrations of the freedom of God's grace!

Foundational Scripture: Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. - Romans 6:14 (NLT)
The overall heartbeat of our ministry is to introduce people to the Freedom of God's Grace and to assist believers in growing and locating themselves in Christ through the Word of God. The purpose is to bring these individuals and families to the true understanding of God's purpose and plan for their lives (Jeremiah 29:11) - Transitioning them out of the world into the Kingdom of God through the practical application of the Word of God, through intimate relationship with God, through the knowledge of Jesus Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Thereby transforming them into their divine purpose and the reality of God.
…after death, eternal life begins either in Heaven or Hell. Where you spend eternity is based on your decision to make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior.
…in the indwelling and baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
…the Bible was written and inspired by God.
…in water baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
…in giving alms to the poor, sick, homeless and others in despair.
…Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day, He rose from the dead and later ascended into Heaven, where He remains at the right Hand of God Almighty.
…that when the Rapture occurs, the dead in Christ will rise first, and then those who are alive and remain (those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior) will be caught up to meet Him in the air.
…in divine healing—the restoration of health to those who believe in Christ and act on the truths written in God’s Word. We further believe that Jesus is our Healer and that with His stripes we are already healed.
...God's Grace teaches us how to live righteously, and godly, in this present world.
…in God’s plan for human sexuality is best expressed with the covenant marriage relationship between Husband and Wife. Furthermore, we believe sex was created to be experienced within the marriage covenant relationship between one man and one woman.
…faith is action born out of strong belief in the Word of God, Jesus Christ and everything He has purchased for us.
...in the authority of the name of Jesus.
...in receiving everyone that Christ sends to us and not rejecting any.
…tithes and offerings should be freely given to your local church. The local church is the place of membership where God has called you to receive His Word on a consistent basis and to grow spiritually.

"Effective giving starts with your heart, not your wallet" - Pastor Forbes
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give
what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you
abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
