OUR VISION

GRX Worship:
• A church that glorifies Jesus as Lord in our city – authentically and compellingly leading people to worship, listen and pray, and commune with God.
• A worship gathering that draws people across the ethnic and religious spectrum of the city to Jesus.
• People are biblically and liturgically shaped to live worshipfully as disciples every day.
• A ministry culture that embodies authenticity, excellence, and grace.

GRX Community Life:
• A church that genuinely embodies and is formed by the love of Christ in our relationships – including, caring for, encouraging, admonishing, forgiving, and being reconciled with each other.
• A community that is one in Christ: connected by our commonalities – but also embracing the gifts of our differences. We desire to cherish even our weaker members, and to do healthy, Christ-like conflict-resolution well.
• A community that is authentic and yet is willing to be stretched by God and each other.
• A community that does not exist merely for itself, but for Christ and his mission.

About GRX: We are a small, young, suburban, multi-ethnic Asian American church – Sunday attendance about 60 people, with adults ages 20s-40s. We are a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church. We currently meet at a local school for Sunday worship.

Our vision is to become a community of subversive suburbanites in the way of Jesus that lives to share his story of renewal and hope for our city and our world. Our vision is codified into five Vows:

1. To worship God in Christ as our true and wise God, teacher, and Lord.
2. To be in community marked by Christ-like love, sacrifice, commitment across cliques, cultures.
3. To pursue spiritual depth in soul and character
4. To gratefully repurpose our possessions, powers, privileges for the church, the poor, the lost
5. To be a redemptive gospel presence in our city and our world.
