Although independent,Grace Community Church is linked in partnership to a network of like-minded churches. We belong to the network of FiveStone Churches, which plants, strengthens, and renews local churches. Led by seasoned church planter and teacher-coach Gordon Zwirkoski, FiveStone Churches is built on 1 Corinthians 3:11-12 and John 10:1-18.
Five Stones Identified in John 10:1-18: Integrity, Authenticity, Trust, Leadership, and Service
Integrity proves Authenticity.
Authenticity leads to Trust.
Trust leads to Leadership.
