Keonna and I feel so blessed and excited to launch a brand new church in the Enumclaw Plateau this Easter. Our church is called Grace Point Northwest and we are thrilled to be joined by several amazing families and leaders who share our passion for the Gospel and love for God’s people.
The Enumclaw Plateau is a very special place to live with great schools, family values and a renowned sense of community. Picturesque mountains and foothills surround us, helping to make the entire plateau a destination for families to live and to play. We have a strong network of churches in our area, especially in the town of Enumclaw itself. We are looking forward to partnering with the body of Christ and making new collaborative efforts to reach the nearly 75% of plateau residents who don’t attend church at all. We believe the harvest is ripe and it is plenty!
The strong hand and favor of God has been with us the past two years as we have prayerfully planned and worked toward the vision He gave us to plant a grace-centered Christian church. We see a church that is a community of individuals and families resting in the finished work of Jesus and living out happy and abundant lives by the power that abides in every born again believer through the Holy Spirit. We will point the world to Jesus by loving them and living in His victory. The vision of Grace Point NW is God’s love to us, in us and through us.
What does this mean to be grace-centered? It means we stand on the New Covenant as the only foundation for salvation and righteousness. We believe sinners are saved by faith in the one who paid the penalty of our sins by dying on the cross and securing forever our justification and eternal life by rising victoriously from the grave. Our faith and confession in Jesus as our Lord and Savior forever separates us from all our sin and causes us to pass from death to life.
We stand firm on the revelation that our sins are forgiven and despite the failures of our flesh we stand before God at all times fully loved and in right standing because our born again spirit has been made one with Christ. We are a new creation raised with Christ through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. And as God no longer sees us after our flesh, we also strive to see one another after the spirit. It is only by grace that we are saved and not by our own works. This is the glory of the New Covenant and the foundation on which we will build this church… Christ in us!
Grace Point NW is a place for people just like you. Maybe you haven’t been to church in years, or never, but somehow you feel this tug to reconnect with God and find out his will for your life. Come check us out. Or maybe you’ve been a believer for years but you are looking for something new? We’d love to CONNECT and share our vision with you.
We hope to see you soon.
