Core Distinctives of Grace Fellowship Church in Gladwin, MI

These core distinctives point us to Christ, keep us in line with God’s Word, and aid us in remembering the shoulders of those we stand on:

  • Christ-Centered: We desire to proclaim what is central throughout Scripture. Namely, that the Law introduces us to Jesus, the Prophets predict Jesus, the Gospels present Jesus, the Acts proclaim Jesus, the Epistles explain Jesus, and the Revelation anticipates Jesus. 
  • Reformed: We hold to the teachings re-established in the Reformation and reflected in the five solas. We stand on Scripture alone (sola scriptura). We are saved by grace alone (sola gratia), through faith alone (sola fide), in Christ alone (solus Christus), to the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). 
  • Baptistic: We believe the local church is to be self-governing and accountable to Christ, her Lord and head. We believe that baptism is to be observed by believers as an act of obedience, publicly professing faith in Christ.
