For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ (Ephesians 2:8-10).

Grace Church Groningen is an international church community in the Anglican tradition.  We are part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, worshipping the one true God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We profess the faith that is uniquely revealed in the Bible and summarized in the Nicene and Apostolic Creeds (statements of faith developed in the Early Church and still used in the Church’s worship today).  Scripture, Reason and Tradition, seen as complementing each other, are key sources for Anglican theology.  We firmly believe the Church is called to proclaim the faith of Christ afresh in each generation.  The Scriptures, the faith and witness professed by the Church through the ages, and the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit inspire and shape our lives, as we humbly seek to follow the example of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and witness to His Kingdom.

Matthew 13:52 (NIV):

Jesus said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
