Grace Church is an independent, autonomous church that is governed by the elders and the members, but we highly value partnerships and participation with like-minded churches. We align ourselves with a few organizations for the sake of church planting, networking, and support. Our carefully chosen missionary partnerships play an invaluable role in our goal of making Jesus known in Hewitt and beyond.
THE ACTS 29 NETWORK
Acts 29 is a diverse, global family of church-planting churches. They exist to encourage, resource, facilitate, support, and equip churches to plant churches that will plant more churches, all for the purpose of seeing the gospel of Jesus proclaimed to those who are lost.
THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
The Southern Baptist Convention is a network of like-minded churches who cooperate together to reach the world for Christ. The SBC focuses it's cooperation on evangelism, church planting, international missions, and seminary training for future pastors and missionaries. In partnering with the SBC, we affirm their core set of beliefs, the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).
The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention
The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention exists to facilitate and extend the Great Commission ministries of the Southern Baptist Convention and Southern Baptist churches and associations of Texas. They are biblically based, kingdom focused, and missionally driven in their efforts to provide helpful and practical support to SBC churches in Texas.
The Gospel Coalition
The Gospel Coalition is a group of pastors and churches in the Reformed tradition that put the gospel of Jesus Christ at the center of all activities. They provide extensive multimedia content, events, courses, books, training, and international outreach in pursuit of their goal of furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ, multiplying His disciples, and upholding Biblical truth as the standard in the Church.
9Marks exists to equip church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources for displaying God’s glory to the nations through healthy churches. To that end, they want to see churches characterized by these nine marks of health: preaching, biblical theology, the gospel, conversion, evangelism, membership, discipline, discipleship and leadership.
