“Welcome to Grace Church of Tallahassee. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better.

Whether you are just looking into the claims of Christianity for the first time or have been a follower of Jesus Christ for many years you will be welcomed by our loving congregation.”
The word “gospel” means good news. The Bible uses it to refer to the good news of God: specifically the news about Jesus and the way of salvation he provides. We believe that the gospel message is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). We encourage you to consider this message of hope today. To aid you in your consideration of the gospel, we provide you a link to a multimedia presentation of the message of Christianity called “Two Ways to Live” by Matthias Media.
1 Peter 2:13-14 Having described the general behavior that Christians should exhibit, Peter starts describing more specific areas to demonstrate our obedience to God. Pastor Rod Bunton tackles the first area — submission to those that God has put in authority over us, even if they are godless.
1 Peter 2:11-12 Peter reminds his readers that, as Christians, we are not like the unbelievers around us; in fact, he calls us “aliens and strangers” in this world. Pastor Rod Bunton reminds us that this means we have an obligation and the power to behave differently.
1 Peter 2:9-10 Peter explains an important concept about who Christians are in the view of God and what that means. Pastor Rod Bunton provides perspective that shows how Peter’s Old Testament terms apply to us in our New Testament covenant.
1 Peter 2:4-8 Peter builds on the metaphor established earlier by Jesus, who called the revelation that He is the living God the stone upon which His church would be built. Pastor Rod Bunton relates this Easter message to Peter’s assertion that this living cornerstone separates the believer from the non-believer.
