We love people, because Christ first loved us!

We are a non-traditional church which believes that methods and styles may change with time, but the timeless message of Jesus Christ never changes. We believe that faith in Christ can drastically change any life, no matter how messed up, or broken you feel your life has become! So, if you’re looking for a place to move beyond your past and experience a new beginning with God; or if you’re looking for a place to belong and to serve - COME AS YOU ARE and experience what God is doing at Metro Grace Community Church!

What Should I Expect When Visiting MGCC?

What will the experience be like?

The service experiences at MGCC include worship music, a message, and personal testimonies. The music is led by a worship leader featuring a blend of today's most popular and inspiring worship music along with some traditional gospel praise songs or hymns. The message is always focused on applying timeless Biblical truths to the real issues that real people face in their daily lives. You can expect to be both encouraged and challenged by Pastor Floyd or one of the other teaching pastors. Personal testimonies are often shared by individuals to highlight what God is doing in the lives of His people and to encourage others. You will always find a friendly, relaxed, environment where everyone is loved and welcomed.

How early should I get there?

Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before the service starts. That will give you time to park, check your kids into Children’s Church, and grab a cup of coffee and a snack before the service begins. Then you'll want to make sure you get into the auditorium before the music starts. We'll give you a heads up when we're about to begin!
 
What should I wear?

Don't worry about wearing "your Sunday best" to Metro Grace. We dress very casually around here. Leave that suit and tie at home. Very likely the teaching pastor and staff will be wearing blue jeans. In fact, when the weather warms up, don't be surprised to see lots of people in shorts.
 
What about my kids?

Our Children and Pre-School Ministries are designed for children from birth through fifth grade. Your child will experience age-appropriate teaching, music, and fun activities designed to introduce them to a life-changing journey to follow Jesus Christ. Our Children’s Ministry is led by staff and volunteers who will be there each week to care for and love on your child. 

What if I want to learn more about Metro Grace Community Church?

How Do I Get Connected?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are young, old, or anywhere in between, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can connect, grow, and serve at this church.

Small Groups

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has a network of small groups meeting together weekly in homes throughout the area for Bible Study, Discipleship, Fellowship, Prayer, Outreach, and Service.

Student and Children's Ministries

Our Student and Children’s Ministries are age appropriate ministries designed to minister to the unique needs of today’s children and youth. We believe it is vital to provide a strong Biblical foundation for our children from the earliest possible age throughout the developing years and unto adulthood.

Men's and Women’s Ministries

Gender specific groups give the men and women in our church family special times of interaction, Bible study, and service. These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the men and women in the church.

Accountability Groups

Our Life Transformation Groups are gender specific groups consisting of 2-3 people who meet weekly or bi-weekly for personal accountability and spiritual growth using the three essential disciplines of Christian growth ? Bible Study, Confession of Sin, and Prayer.
 
Serve with a good attitude, as to the Lord and not to men
Ephesians 6:7 HCSB
 

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to our community and to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. We provide numerous opportunities for our members to serve and to make a difference locally and around the world.

Local Outreach

Our members are involved in a variety of outreach ministries and service projects throughout the Jackson Metro Area. In addition to our outreach and service ministries, we partner with a number of local missions ministries to help provide them with volunteers and resources, along with spiritual support. Wherever you feel God has lead you to serve, we provide opportunities to utilize the gifts and abilities God has given you to make a difference in our community. 

North American and International Missions 

Metro Grace Community Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting world-wide missions efforts with our money and with our prayers. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers here at home and around the world. We partner with several missions organizations to provide short-term and long-term mission opportunities for our members to carry out God's work around the world.

Music & Worship Team

Authentic, God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Church members with musical talents are encouraged to get involved in our music and worship ministry. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Hospitality Team

The Hospitality team at our church fills a very important role. They are responsible for making sure everyone who comes into our church, guests and members alike, feel welcomed. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, assisting guests, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The Hospitality team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Media & Technology

Using media to communicate our message and spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. We also maintain an active Social Media presence for additional church communication.

Prayer Team

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, a team of volunteers prays for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer team pray for our pastor and leadership team, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. 

 
But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
1st John 1:7

Small Groups

The Christian Life is not meant to be lived alone. You were created to experience life in community with other people, and that’s why at Metro Grace Community Church, we encourage you to get involved a small group.

A small group is a group of three or more people who gather regularly in a home, workplace, or other location, to study the Word, support each other, and pray together.

Small Groups can come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you.

The Journey

At Metro Grace Community Church we understand the important role Small Groups play in the process of Discipleship. That's why beginning in January 2017 many of our small groups will begin The Journey,  The Journey is an intentional one-year plan designed to help believers grow to maturity in Christ. It's a purposeful process created to nurture believers into disciples who make disciples.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is God’s Word, written by the hands of men but supernaturally inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit. It is free of error in its original writings and is our final authority in all areas of life.

We believe there is one true God. God has existed eternally as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. They are three, and yet one – the Trinity:

Father: He is the creator and ruler of everything. Before the world was created, the Father planned to send his Son, Jesus, to redeem mankind. God is all-knowing, so nothing that happens surprises him; in fact, everything in human history works together to accomplish His plan for the world.

Son: Jesus is God the Son. He is the Messiah (or, Christ) that was promised to Israel. Because Jesus is God, he is eternal. He came to earth, was supernaturally conceived through the Holy Spirit, and born through Mary, who was a virgin. He lived a sinless life but was crucified according to God’s plan of redemption. Jesus defeated death (the greatest enemy) by his bodily resurrection. Hundreds of people were eyewitnesses and saw Jesus alive. After this, he ascended into Heaven, where he exists in a glorified body. Jesus now acts as our advocate and intercedes for us with God the Father.

Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is not just a force or a power, but the actual Spirit of God. He convicts the world of sin, leads us to right-living, and warns of impending judgment. He is a deposit in the life of every believer, guaranteeing our future inheritance – eternal life. The Spirit empowers the preaching, teaching, and understanding of the Gospel. We receive gifts from the Spirit that enable us to build up the body of believers and work towards the mission of God in our world.

We believe that mankind was created in the image of God as male and female. The first man and woman (Adam and Eve) sinned, and as a result, they would experience physical death and spiritual death – which is separation from God. Since each human being is their descendant, we are all born with a sinful nature. Our natural inclination is to sin (for example, no one had to teach us how to lie), and we sin with our thoughts, our words, and our actions. This sin has severed our relationship with God, and unless it is dealt with, will result in eternal death and separation from him. We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world. The death and wrath that Jesus experienced is what we rightly deserve because of sin, but he is our substitute. Everyone who puts their faith completely and totally in Jesus are declared, “Not Guilty,” by God because of Jesus’ sacrifice. Everyone who receives Jesus by faith experiences new life. The Bible refers to this as being “born again.” For all who do this, they become God’s children and receive eternal life.

We believe in the existence of the devil. He has several titles and names, all describing how wicked and rebellious he is: the deceiver, the accuser (the literal meaning of Satan), a liar from the beginning, and the Enemy of our souls. He seeks to destroy the lives and souls of people, just as he did in the beginning with Adam and Eve. God permits the Enemy to have a certain amount of power and influence in the world, but it is limited. One day, God will judge Satan and all his demons, along with everyone who rejects Jesus. They will suffer because God will not shrug off their unrepentant wickedness. Their punishment is too terrible for words, but the Bible says they will eternally be punished in a lake of fire.

We believe that the blessed hope of believers is the imminent return and appearance of Jesus. We long to see him, because he is our Savior. For those who belong to Jesus, they will live with God forever. For those who reject Jesus, they will be separated from God in Hell forever.

We believe in the Church, which is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ throughout the world. The Bible refers to the Church as the Body and the Bride of Christ. We belong to him. Our mission is God’s mission: to preach the Gospel of Jesus to the whole world, and announce that people can be reconciled to God. We believe in the local church, which is one expression of the larger Body of believers. Those who belong to the local church have a responsibility to make an investment there with their time, talents, spiritual gifts, special skills, resources, and money.

We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion) are to be a regular and integral part of the local church. We baptize because it symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper to remember Christ’s sacrifice for us. The bread and the cup are the symbols of the new covenant, representing Jesus’ body and blood.

 
For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him.
John 3:17 HCSB

Ephesians 1:5 He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will. HCSB

Notice with me in this passage of Scripture, the word“predestined.” That word means, “to decide beforehand, to predetermine the outcome." Predestined is a word that bothers a lot of people, mainly because it so widely misunderstood. There are some who incorrectly teach that predestination means that God has predetermined who would be saved and who would be lost, and neither person has any say in the matter. Much harm has come from the teaching of this doctrinal error.

Now, I have no doubt, that God in His foreknowledge, knew before the foundation of the earth the names of every individual who would receive His offer of salvation through faith in Christ. But my friends, God’s Word is plain – He calls us to a place of repentance, but we each must make our own free-will choice to receive or reject His offer of grace. Furthermore, this incorrect and harmful misunderstanding of predestination makes a liar out of God’s Word, which emphatically declares in Romans 10:13 “…everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

So, what is the correct understanding of this word? Predestined simply means that God planned before the foundation of the world that all who receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ would be adopted into God’s family as His children. Predestination is God’s eternal plan of taking lost sinners, saving them by His grace, bringing them into His family, and transforming them into the likeness of His Son.

My friend, God was at work long before you were even born to see to it that you would have an opportunity to hear the Gospel, repent of your sins, and embrace Jesus Christ for your salvation. That is indeed some very good news!

May the grace and peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all!

Floyd
