Motivated by the love of Christ 

 Come visit our growing community of believers. 
 

Living Grace is:

  • more than just a Sunday gathering
  • a family of believers from all walks of life
  • declaring & celebrating who Jesus is
  • growing in the corporate study of the Bible
  • practicing what we learn together
  • serving a real and relevant Savior

 

 
 
 

Grow in the Word

We place high value on the preaching, teaching, and the personal study of the Bible. While Living Grace provides the resources and tools for understanding the Word of God, it is the responsibility of the individual believer to appropriate and utilize these tools.

Ministry

Meeting the needs of the world around us, both locally and internationally, is part of our everyday ministry. Living Grace actively sends our members ahead to U.S. and foreign missionary work while also focusing on serving our local community, Tacoma. It’s a place where what you learn can become more than just head knowledge.
 
 
 

SERVICE

 

We are a church that serves. We value studying the Word, competency in the message of the Bible, and discipleship of the next generation to serve our community and world for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. More than just head knowledge, we’re guided in implementing practical ministry.
 
 

TACOMA 

 

Called to Tacoma over 30 years ago, we are dedicated to the people of our community and partner with local ministries to serve the needs of Tacoma. The School of Urban Ministry at Living Grace Church trains and sends workers in Tacoma and around the globe.
 

 JESUS

 

Jesus’ finished work at the cross is at the center of everything we do. We believe what the Bible says about who Jesus is and what He has accomplished for us. His Word guides us in all our work. Spreading His Good News is our aim and faithfulness to his calling is our mission. We experience creative and exciting ways to reach the lost as each year goes by.
