What is Grace Encounter (GE)?
Grace Encounter is a Christian Ministry that focuses on spiritual and emotional healing and thriving. Our mission is "Transformation Through Loving Connection". We believe that we are transformed by the love of God and the love of His community of believers. We believe that Christ's mission was to heal the broken hearted and bind up the wounded. In this fallen world we are often hurt, wounded and confused by the pain and darkness all around us. We believe that grace is for more than just saving us in a future state, Grace is here for us now to heal us, and to grow us into a mature wholehearted people. This involves truth, emotional honesty, intentional personal investigation, and healing community. We provide workshops, ongoing community, and teachings that help people to heal, grow, and thrive.
Grace Encounter Board Team
We Believe in...
The Bible as God’s inspired, inerrant Word
The Holy Trinity of the Godhead
The virgin birth of Jesus as the Son of Man and the Son of God
The death and resurrection of Jesus as God’s atonement for sinful human nature
The need for each individual to respond to God’s grace by faith
The sanctifying presence of the Holy Spirit in the lives of all believers
That all Grace Encounter leaders and trainers should live lives that reflect the life-giving principles and behaviors described in the Bible.
Moving toward recovery of the “real you,” enabling you to both give and receive love; discovering a life of grace and truth based on God’s Word and Christ’s love.
Removing the masks you wear; identifying and overcoming lies you’ve believed about yourself, God, and others; discovering the joy and freedom of being who God made you to be.
Realizing you’re not responsible for what happened to you, but you are accountable for how you respond: deciding not to remain a victim, choosing to forgive, and embracing the truth of God’s perspective.
Developing trust and openness with others in a confidential setting, while empathizing with each other’s unique journeys; building supportive continuing relationships.
Experiencing Christ’s love and taking it into your home, workplace, and church, modeling authentic Christianity; using the tools you’ll receive to experience lasting change.
