WHO WE ARE?
We are a multi-ethnic and diverse congregation where everyone is free to experience, be renewed by, and proclaim the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
To see the expansion of the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, thus making healthy disciples in the Greenacres community, Palm Beach County, and beyond.
WHY GREEN ACRES?
Greenacres is a city in Palm Beach County, which is located just west of Lake Worth. It was founded by Lawrence Carter Swain, who purchased 320 acres of land to build a community that would be occupied by the working and middle class. There are many things that make the Greenacres an ideal area for Redeeming Grace:
11th most unchurched area in the Nation
Emerging community; average age of the residents being 36 years old
Geographically viable for reaching West Palm Beach.
o Caucasians (41%)
o Hispanics (38%)
o African-Americans (16 %)
o Asian (3%)
o Other Races (2%)
EVANGELIZING THE WORLD.”

We are a CHRIST-CENTERED Church: Redeeming Grace is a Church whose sole mission is to glorify and exalt the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Therefore, every component in our worship (preaching, praying, reading of Scripture, singing, etc.) is designed to accomplish this purpose.
We are a CONFESSIONAL AND CREEDAL Church: It is often said that “doctrine divides”. And, here at Redeeming Grace we, not only believe that, but we take the position that it should. Redeeming Grace is very intentional in making sure that each person who worships with us understands who we are and where we stand doctrinally as a Church. And, in order to do this, we have incorporated the reciting of the Ligonier Statement on Christology in our worship services, and subscribe to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith as our primary doctrinal standard.
We are a COMMUNION Church: Here, at Redeeming Grace, we place a high value on the LORD’s Supper, which we define as “the Gospel made visible”. Therefore, we partake of the elements of bread and wine every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. By doing this, we strive to constantly set forth a reminder, for not only our congregation but for our believing visitors as well, of what Christ has done for us in His life, death, and resurrection, as well as the security and assurance that comes from this sacrificial work.
We are a COMMITTED Church: Whereas Holy Scripture is at the root of our foundation as a Church, the fruit that comes from that root is seen in the areas that we are committed to developing in our Church. These areas, known as the “Five Pillars” of Redeeming Grace are as follows:
THE 5 SOLAS
During the Protestant Reformation, the 5 Solas became a mark of a healthy church, focused upon Christ and his Gospel. There is still great value for the modern church, in remembering this key biblical framework.
- Sola scriptura ("by Scripture alone")
- Sola fide ("by faith alone")
- Sola gratia ("by grace alone")
- Solus Christus or Solo Christo ("Christ alone" or "through Christ alone")
- Soli Deo gloria ("glory to God alone")
