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.
We invite you to come and worship with us as we learn together to be a family of families in Jesus so that we might impact our city and the world with His love, hope and forgiveness!

The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows—
light! sunbursts of light!
You repopulated the nation,
you expanded its joy.
Oh, they’re so glad in your presence!
The joy of a great celebration,
sharing rich gifts and warm greetings.
The abuse of oppressors and cruelty of tyrants—
all their whips and cudgels and curses—
Is gone, done away with, a deliverance
as surprising and sudden as Gideon’s old victory over Midian.
The boots of all those invading troops,
along with their shirts soaked with innocent blood,
Will be piled in a heap and burned,
a fire that will burn for days!
For a child has been born—for us!
the gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over
the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counselor,
Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings.
He’ll rule from the historic David throne
over that promised kingdom.
He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing
and keep it going
With fair dealing and right living,
beginning now and lasting always.
The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies
will do all this.
