Our Vision and Mission

A Church in Fresno With A Grand Vision

We exist to transform the people of Fresno by finding, equipping, and multiplying followers of Jesus Christ for the glory of God.

Grace changes everything. As a church in Fresno, that is the message we long to share with the residents here. It is our testimony and our mission. Grace causes men to joyfully accept suffering and persecution and the plundering of their possessions because they know “a better possession and an abiding one” (Heb 10:32-34). Grace is the treasure worth more than all our belongings. It’s the pearl of surpassing value (Mt 13:44-46). None of this makes sense if Christ is not our treasure. We will never part with earthly joys if the kingdom of God is not a pearl of infinite value to us. None of this is worth it, if we haven’t already received grace upon grace (Jn 1:16) and if God hasn’t promised us an eternity where one day with him is better than a thousand elsewhere (Ps 84:10). The clearest picture of this is the substitutionary sacrifice of our Lord. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Cor 8:9). The only reason we can sacrifice anything is because we know that in Christ we have everything! Grace is where the incredible truth of the Gospel overcomes the complex longings of our hearts and changes us for good! When the Gospel intersects our lives, we cannot remain unchanged. We are a church in Fresno that points you to the Gospel of hope over and over again.

A Church in Fresno With A Grand Mission

Our mission is to establish a church in which every member has a mentor, every mentor oversees a ministry, and every 10 ministries plants a new mission.

An estimated 73% of the Central Valley is unchurched. Research continues to show that there is no more effective means of reaching the lost than through church planting. There is a massive need for planting churches that will not compromise the message of the Gospel. It is our prayer that God would cause Grace Presbyterian Church in Fresno to grow into a Christ-exalting, gospel-centered community of believers that would have a lasting impact upon our city and world. We seek to equip a community of saints in the city of Fresno who are committed to gospel living through fellowship, outreach, discipleship, and church planting. We believe these core values express the heart of the early Christians who “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).
