Growing in Grace is an extension of the ministry of San Gabriel Community Church whose mission is “to make known the glory of God to all peoples through the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Growing in Grace is committed to this mission by preaching the Bible with clarity and conviction because we believe the Bible is the living Word of God intended to speak truth to every generation.
