We are a new kind of church committed to seeing every individual thrive in a relationship with Christ. Sharing the gospel with a lost world and making disciples through the Word of God and prayer central to loving God, loving unity, and loving community.


We see the vision of The Grove Community unfolding through our discipleship efforts to Love God, Love Unity, and Love Community. This is more than a program of discipleship, rather it is a careful approach to establish, evaluate, and encourage every individual's journey forward towards Jesus.


God calls us to come to Him in prayer instead of being anxious and worrying (Philippians 4:6). It’s easy for all of us to be anxious and worry. Instead, let’s come together today to share our requests and pray for each other.



Love God is our entry point where people are given the time they need to understand the truth of God's Word and His desire for them to enter a relationship with Him.


Love Unity develops believers in their identity in Christ, their connection with each other, and their purpose in life to evangelize and make disciples.


Love Community is where the small groups of believers seek to serve and share Christ with people in their circle of influence and the greater community.



We are committed to solid Bible teaching.

Acts 20:27; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; 2 Timothy 4:2; 2 Timothy3:16-17


We are committed to loving God as individuals, and as a church family through obedience to the Word of God.

Matthew 22:34-38; Acts 2:42; 1 John 4:19


We are committed to loving people through word and deed.

Isaiah 58:6-10; Matthew 22:39-40; 1 John 3:18


We are committed to preparing God's people to share the Gospel message with the unsaved in a culturally relevant manner.

Colossians 4:5-6; Ephesians 4:11-16; Acts 17:23


We are committed to identifying and applying the personal spiritual gifts of each individual in the local body for the good of the worldwide Church, the benefit of the local body of believers, and the joy and fulfillment of the individual in service to the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 4:11-16


We are committed to training leadership for the purpose of kingdom building.

2 Timothy 2:1-2; 1 Peter 5:1-5
