Our Story

Grace Gathering Church is a Christ-centered multi-ethnic and multi-generational community of people from all walks of life. Our mission is to Grow a vibrant relationship with God, experience a loving community, and help change the lives of others.

It all started back in 2016 when a few couples began to pray seeking God’s will and direction. As we continued to pray, He added more people and led us to plant a church in the Boca Raton area so that everyone would have many opportunities to hear, see, and respond to the gospel.

We publicly launched as Grace Gathering in July of 2020. Since our launch, the Lord has brought many people with whom we get to do life together.

Our Beliefs

Grace Gathering is a Bible-based church. That means we seek to believe and practice what is explicitly taught in the Bible. Based on the Bible, we believe the following:

We believe that the Bible is the absolute Truth and God’s final authority. We believe both the Old and New Testament is the inerrant, divinely inspired, and infallible Word of God.
We accept the Bible as our manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, “What does the Bible say?” We practice Bible reading, Bible study, and Bible memorization. The Bible is the basis for all we believe.
We believe that there is one true living God who is revealed to us as the Godhead existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are as one God. We believe that God the Father orders all things according to His own purpose for His own glory. We believe that God the Son is Jesus Christ who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born without sin of the Virgin Mary to redeem man from sin. We believe that God the Holy Spirit is sent from God to convict of sin and unrighteousness, and to be an indwelling guide, teacher, and source of strength for the believer. We believe that all who receive Christ as Savior are born of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone and the atonement and forgiveness He extended to us on the cross. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that man sinned (rebelled against God) and because of the fall, incurred both a physical death and a spiritual death (eternal separation from God). We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature. We believe that all who call upon the name of the Lord as Savior will be saved and will spend eternity with God.
We practice baptism by immersion under water—the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands.
We observe the Lord’s Supper as a symbolic act of obedience. We remember the death of Jesus and anticipate His second coming through sharing in the Lord’s Supper.
We believe that the only way possible to live the Christian life is through God’s power within us. We seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit leading and enabling us to follow God’s Word.
We believe that a New Testament church is an association of baptized believers. We come together through worship, small groups, and service. As the body of Christ, the church, we have diversity in our gifts and unity in our beliefs. We believe that every believer is called to a holy life of service and should belong to a Bible-believing local church for fellowship and for the furtherance of the Gospel to every person at home and around the globe.
Christ – not a person, group, or religious organization – is the recognized head of the church. We practice self-government and independence from any denominational control and team up with a network of like-minded churches for greater impact. Each congregation determines its own strategy, structure, and style.
We practice tithing as an act of worship to our Savior and Lord. We recognize that tithing 10% of our income is the starting point and giving above and beyond that is our privilege.
We practice sharing Christ personally as we exemplify the life of Christ and verbalize the Gospel. It is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News of the Gospel with those whom God brings across our path. Of course, we also like to invite friends to church.
