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.

You’re involved in the same kind of struggle you saw me go through, on which you are now getting an updated report in this letter.
