Grace Church has been part of the Clifton-Paterson-Passaic community since its beginnings in 1889. What was then a mission to Northern European immigrants continues today as a reflection of the many different nationalities that make Clifton and Passaic county their home.
We continue to live with the conviction that the One true God has made us a new family of families for a new life together through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the sake of His world. We believe the good news that the crucified and risen Jesus is Lord of all and is for everyone from everywhere. All who believe this news for themselves are forgiven and invited to be part of God's renewing work in the world - a work which be completed when Jesus returns again at any time.

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
