WHO WE ARE
To lead people towards Jesus
WHY THE NAME GRUMLAW?
When French settlers first arrived in the area and before Grand Blanc was ever named Grand Blanc, it was called “Grumlaw.” By naming the church Grumlaw, the community is literally engrained in our identity and name.
We want to be a church that serves Grand Blanc and the surrounding area- a church that is a part of the community.
THE GRUMLAW SEVEN
This is our strategy. These help us measure how we’re doing and they keep us on track towards our mission.
WITH CHRIST AT THE CENTER, WE ARE DRIVEN BY GENEROSITY, TRUTH, EXCELLENCE, AND CREATIVITY.
1. ASSUME THE BEST
2. CELEBRATE CREATIVITY
We have an exceedingly creative God who created us to be in community. When we celebrate the creativity of others, we are willing to push forward the ideas that are best for the greater whole rather than what we see as the best for ourselves.
3. MAKE IT BETTER
4. ALWAYS BE TEACHABLE
5. GIVE IT UP
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity and the son of God- He became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to save us.
We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God without error because the writers were moved by the Spirit of God to write those words. It is the only book that has the power to transform lives.
We believe baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment- it is a declaration to the world that we have received salvation through Jesus and symbolizes His death, burial, and resurrection.
We believe all Jesus followers should live a life for Jesus, not themselves. This occurs through obedience to the Word of God and daily submission to the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The members of the Church are those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God and make Him known throughout the world.
