The Doctrines We Believe

  • God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three persons are co-equal and are one God.

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

  • Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

  • The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source for truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

  • People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

  • Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

  • Eternity – Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely save, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.


The vision of GracePointe Church is to glorify God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son by the power of the Holy Spirit through worship, discipleship, stewardship and fellowship. We believe that we are all created and are saved to make God look good by doing what we were created to do.

One driving passion expressed in four deliberate practices.


God is worthy of our worship. His Son Jesus, our lamb, was slain so that we could have life. All who He is and what He has done moves us to praise His name. We do this by gathering in a corporate worship services on Sunday mornings. We worship God by remembering the gospel through preaching, teaching, singing, praying and other creative expressions. Each presents an opportunity for the church and the unchurched to respond to the grace of God.


Jesus Christ gave His church a specific directive to be and to make disciples. We seek to grow as His disciples by learning and following Jesus Christ through His Word, the Bible. We pursue fulfilling His commission to the church by sharing the gospel with everyone that God places in our path. We do this by inviting people to join our Bible Studies, D-Groups (small groups) and other discipling venues.


Since the beginning of creation God has invited us to join Him in overseeing the earth. Each of us has been given time, treasures and talents to use for His glory. At GracePointe, we want everyone to be faithful and fruitful with what God has entrusted to their care. We pursue this by encouraging everyone to discover and employ their SHAPE (spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences). Throughout the year, we offer opportunities to serve in projects and in programs. We encourage each person to cheerfully give both tithes and offerings.


Relationships are valuable and a necessary for life. Our community is built upon growing in love for one another by sharing our blessings and our burdens. We seek to share in fellowship with one another by providing opportunities throughout the year to eat and to pray together. Our fellowship with God is celebrated through the Lord’s Supper at various fellowship gatherings and during our worship services.

A Little History

GracePointe Church was planted and organized on August 1, 2000 in Douglas, Georgia. GracePointe was conceived out of the vision of a small group of people, led by Ridley Barron, the founding pastor, who were looking to begin a different kind church experience for those who are unchurched and for those have been disenfranchised from churches in the past

This vision has continued and grown as GracePointe Church seeks to help the unbelieving world and those who believe that God is good and that life is found in Jesus Christ.
