The vision of Grace (in which Grace Oviedo is a campus) is to be one church in many communities. At Grace we want to see a gospel movement spread throughout the neighborhoods of Central Florida, through the strategic planting of Grace campuses and communities. At the local level (Grace Oviedo) we desire to see people’s lives transformed by the gospel through engaging in our weekly services, and grace communities that are offered throughout the week. Our prayer is that we will be a people who takes the gospel message out into our communities. We want people to live out the gospel in their given context each and every day. It is our desire that through these relationships people will be introduced to Christ and His work in an through Grace Oviedo. Our vision is to see people take their next step toward Christ, no matter what that step might be. We are trying to reach those in the community who are either lost or de-churched with the gospel. It is our desire to see conversion growth at Grace and not just transfer growth. That would be a great succes.
Our mission at Grace church is to help people take their next step toward Christ. The truth is everyone has a next step. Regardless if one has never discovered the gospel, or his or her identity is firmly founded in the good news; the Holy Spirit is continually drawing people to the triune God. Though these steps are taken at different times and at different paces, each one moves toward one goal, one person – Jesus Christ. At Grace, we break these steps down into four categories: Gospel Discover, Gospel Acceptance, Gospel Formation, and Gospel Identity. Our goal is to see people move through each one of these steps as they pursue Christ wholeheartedly. In five years, we hope to see people who have entered gospel discovery being the vessel by which God uses to bring others to faith in the gospel. Our desire is to see people come to a place where their identity is rooted in the gospel and they are helping others begin their journey.
