Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Without question, the most important part of any church is what the leadership and congregation believe. The word "doctrine" comes from the Latin doctrine which means "a code of beliefs," "a body of teachings," or "instructions." When we speak of biblical doctrine, it refers to the body of timeless, universal, unchanging truths delineated in the teachings, instructions and precepts of Scripture.

These common beliefs comprise the doctrine of the church and are often collected and spelled out in a doctrinal statement. The doctrines in our doctrinal statement are commonly held by the leadership and the congregation, and are representative of what you can expect to hear at all levels and venues of Gospel Grace’s preaching and teaching ministries.
