MISSION STATEMENT


To help people COME to life, FOLLOW Jesus, DISCOVER purpose, and LEAD others to do the same.

OUR VALUES


These are the six values that drive us!

We call them our 6 P’s:  Passion, Pursuit, Prodigals, Potential, Planting, and Purpose.

Passion

PASSION

We want to be a life-giving church! The local church should be the most contagious place on earth. We want to love well, serve with passion, and have fun along the way.

Pursuit

PURSUIT

We will passionately pursue God through worship and prayer. Jesus taught, “Apart from me you can do nothing.” Everything we do will start with seeking Him.

Prodigals

PRODIGALS

We exist for those far from God. We will reach the lost, the absent, and the unfulfilled. Our purpose is to help “real people find real life in Christ.”

Potential

POTENTIAL

We believe the future is now! We will invest in the next generation of students because they are the church of today.​​​​​​​

Planting

PLANTING

We are a church-planting church. We long to see the exponential multiplication of disciples, leaders, artists, and church planters. We want a movement!

PURPOSE

We have deep convictions that you were made for more. God made each person with gifts and passions to be used for His glory. We were created to get in the game rather than sit on the sidelines!

OUR STORY


The vision for Grace Church began nearly three years ago when Pastor Craig Knisley felt called by God to start a new church in a college town that would impact the world for Christ. At the same time Grace Church in Indianapolis, a healthy missional church of 5,000, was dreaming of impacting Bloomington for the gospel. So in the spring of 2015, the two teamed up to envision the launching of Grace Church Bloomington!

The vision of Grace Bloomington is that it would be a life-giving church! That Grace would be a vibrant, healthy expression of God’s kingdom in a broken world. It would be a safe place for the lost, the absent, and the unfulfilled.

Over the past few years Craig has been building a team to make this dream a reality. Today there are multiple families committed to the healthy beginnings of this new church focused on transforming Bloomington! Grace Bloomington launched in October of 2017, and we would love to have you join us for the next stages of our story...

WHAT WE BELIEVE


GOD


We believe there is only one true God who is eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, just and loving. We believe that God purposefully created the world and is personally engaged in the lives of human beings.

JESUS CHRIST


We believe that God entered the world in human form in the person of Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ is both fully human and completely God.

Jesus alone reconciled us with God, revealed God’s character and inaugurated God’s Kingdom.

HOLY SPIRIT


We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s indwelling presence: the source of power, guidance and conviction in the life of a follower of Christ.

HUMANITY


​​​​​​​We believe that every person is uniquely created in the image of God but, through sinful disobedience, is broken and has alienated themselves from God, others and the creation. The result is that every person is in need of healing and reconciliation.

KINGDOM


​​​​​​​We believe that God’s kingdom is the sum of His purposes and hopes for this world. The Kingdom is realized as Christ’s disciples commit themselves to His mission. We anticipate a future time when Jesus will return to complete the mission of God on earth.

SALVATION


​​​​​​​We believe that through faith in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection our sinful disobedience is forgiven and that through repentance and surrender to God we are reconciled to him for this life and eternity.

CHURCH


​​​​​​​We believe the Church is the universal community of all Christ-followers. The Church finds its best expression in unique, local communities of Christ-followers united for the purpose of demonstrating the values of the Kingdom of God in the world.

BIBLE


We believe that the Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural inspiration of God and is our authority for all matters of faith and practice.​​​​​​​
