About Grace Fellowship Church

Welcome to Forward Church's position papers page, where we delve into various topics within the realm of faith and society. As a community-driven church, we believe it is essential to have a clear understanding of our principles and values, enabling us to impact our community positively. In this section, we aim to provide you with comprehensive and detailed insights into our stance on important subjects that shape not only our faith but also society as a whole.

Our Belief System

At Grace Fellowship Church, our belief system is rooted in the teachings of the Bible. We consider the Bible to be the ultimate authority and guide for our faith and conduct. Our conversations, debates, and position papers are all centered around understanding and interpreting God's Word. It is through dedicated study and prayer that we shape our positions on various matters affecting our community and society.

Our Position on Faith and Society

1. The Role of Faith in Society

We firmly believe that faith plays a crucial role in society. It provides individuals with a guiding framework for moral values, personal growth, and social responsibility. Faith communities have historically contributed to the welfare of society by offering spiritual support, fostering community engagement, and promoting charitable acts. We encourage open dialogue and engagement between faith and society, striving to build bridges and promote understanding.

2. Community Outreach and Engagement

As an active and engaged church, community outreach is of utmost importance to us. We strive to actively address the needs of our community, working alongside local organizations and individuals to create positive change. Through partnerships, volunteer initiatives, and events, we aim to foster a sense of belonging and goodwill within our community while promoting compassion, justice, and equality.

3. Social Justice and Advocacy

Justice and equality are central to the teachings of Jesus Christ. We believe in advocating for social justice, standing against all forms of discrimination, oppression, and injustice. Our position papers highlight our stance on issues such as racial equality, gender equality, environmental stewardship, poverty alleviation, and human rights. We actively engage in dialogue, education, and advocacy efforts to promote a more just and inclusive society.

4. Faith and Science

Addressing the relationship between faith and science is crucial to our understanding of the world. We embrace the idea that faith and science can coexist harmoniously. We recognize that science provides valuable insights into the natural realm, while our faith gives us a deeper understanding of meaning, purpose, and the spiritual dimensions of life. Through dialogue and exploration, we aim to bridge the perceived gap between faith and science, encouraging curiosity, critical thinking, and intellectual growth.

5. Morality and Ethics

Our belief system guides our understanding of morality and ethics. We believe in upholding virtuous values, practicing integrity, and striving for ethical behavior in all areas of life. Our position papers explore moral issues such as human dignity, family values, sexual ethics, and the sanctity of life. We seek to provide a perspective rooted in love, compassion, and biblical principles, fostering a society guided by righteousness and justice.
