Shaken … but not stirred
The Grosvenor congregations dotted across North Devon have a different heart and vision for Church. We are a group of people from all walks of life determined to be a Church without walls. Which is why you can ‘come as you are’. Our aim is for nobody to stand alone, therefore we work hard to ensure a transparent, loving, genuine community.
We want to genuinely care for and build positive, vibrant neighbourhoods, which is the reason we are launching new congregations across the region, to meet the needs of North Devon communities.
We believe in the one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God-fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
The Son of God (Jesus) was born to become a sacrifice for mankind’s sin and His death is the only basis for salvation from the guilt, power and eternal consequences of sin.
The Holy Spirit shows us the truth, brings about new birth, comes to dwell in us and makes us holy (like Jesus).
The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers – given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorised and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.”
We believe in the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
