As a church family, we are growing together as faithful & fruitful followers of Jesus Christ.
In 2009, Grace Redeemer Church (GRC) began as a church plant of the the Gulf Coast Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). As a congregation in a community that has many generational locals and many military transplants, we praise God that He has continued to provide for the maturity of our church family in the intervening years. In 2017, our church family elected and called Tyson Turner, with his wife, Jen, and their children to come and follow our founding pastor, David Young. Pastor Tyson leads alongside our ruling elders, Tom Green and Michael Steinberg.
We are evangelical and reformed in doctrine. Our beliefs are more fully expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith (full text here), and briefly summarized in The Apostles’ Creed.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
