Values: How we do what we do
Everyone Belongs Here
We are all broken people in equal need of God’s endless grace. Through outreach, we let our city know they have a home at Granada.
Made to Worship
Our sole purpose in life is to worship God. It’s that simple. This can be done in many different ways! We provide you with Sunday services where you are focused on Jesus and singing praises to Him alongside others.
Walk With Me
Groups are an important part of your faith journey. This is where people open up and really “do life” together. You’ll make friends, see Jesus work in their lives, and become a part of their family.
Live Out Grace
We love our city and it needs our help. We go out locally and internationally to serve wherever we are needed. Sacrificing yourself for others is the ultimate act of love.
Beliefs: Why we do what we do
Gift of Redemption
Through this love of God, redeemed sinners are forever united to Christ, they receive his righteousness, and they become a new creation. The grace of God enables them to live a new life of love and service.
Granada Church remains part of a larger community of churches committed to the Reformed faith. The fundamentals of this movement are a deep focus on Christ, salvation by grace alone, faithfulness to Scripture, and the glory of God.
Granada Church, also known as Granada Presbyterian Church, is a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
What is a member?
Our denomination provides a system for its churches to keep track of church attendance and growth. Part of this system is an official membership class where anyone can profess a desire to commit to a church permanently. Think of it like getting married to a church instead of just dating churches!
What opportunities do members have that others do not?
Granada offers help to many people in the community; however, resources are limited. We have reserves that are specifically maintained to help protect and aid our official members. For example, if one of our members has a legitimate financial emergency, our church Deacons would consider using those reserves to help them. That is something we cannot do for everyone in the city.
Infant baptisms are performed for church members only because we believe in remaining present in the lives of the children we baptize.
Additionally, members are allowed to vote for new elders and deacons as well as approve major financial decisions. It is very similar to the U.S. government!
How does someone benefit from membership?
You are able to call a church home which deepens your walk of faith. You can take a bigger role in the decision-making of Granada, access help that others cannot, and even get a Granada Day School discount depending on your church membership status and involvement.
We take care of our people.
