Who We Are

The Grove is a Foursquare Church located in Ahwahnee, CA.

 

Our call is to preach Jesus Christ, God's Son, as the Savior, Healer, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, and Coming King.

 

We are a church with a mission, the "Great Commandment" and the "Great Commission". We believe in the model of the early church as described in Acts chapter 2 in that the bigger we get as a church, the smaller we grow into groups, both through large-group celebration and small-group fellowship where relationship and discipleship can happen. Like the roots of a Sequoia grove, we believe it is important to intertwine and entangle our lives together in fellowship and community with one another, bringing strength to the entire body.

 

We aim to be a church without walls as we reach out into our mountain communities and beyond to share the love and Good News of Jesus Christ with all people no matter where they are in their faith journey.

 

Our heart is to serve you. If there is anything that we can do to assist you as you browse around The Grove Online, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting with you in person, and getting to know you better. Thanks again, we hope to see you Sunday!

9.   WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER

      We believe baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work Matthew 28:19. We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the           bread and the juice of the vine 1 Corinthians 11:24, 25.

13. MODERATION

      We believe the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism 1 Timothy 2:8-10; Colossians 3:17; Philippians 4:5.

      We believe the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17.

22. TITHES AND OFFERINGS

      We believe the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving tithes and free-will offerings Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7.
