Mission & Vision

The Mission of West Kittanning Grace Brethren Church
is the same Great Commission that Jesus gave His followers in Matthew 28 : 19-20.

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
The Vision of West Kittanning Grace Brethren Church
is to create a community of authentic believers in Jesus Christ who come together, as different members, but when working side by side, beautifully reflect Christ through His Bride, The Church.

What We Believe

We of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches (Charis Fellowship), in harmony with our historic position, believing the Bible, the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible to be our infallible rule of faith and of practice, and feeling our responsibility to make known the divine message of the Bible, present the following articles as a statement of those basic truths taught in the Bible which are common to our Christian faith and practice.


the Word of God, the sixty-six Books of the Old and New Testaments, verbally inspired in all parts and wholly without error as originally given of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

One True God

existing eternally as three persons-the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

Lord Jesus Christ

his direct creation in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-28), his subsequent fall into sin resulting in spiritual death (Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 5:12) and the necessity of the new birth for his salvation (John 3:3-5).


a complete and eternal salvation by God's grace alone, received as the gift of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone and His finished work (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:18-19).

Christian Life

a life of righteousness, good works and separation unto God from the evil ways of the world (Romans 12:1-2), manifested by speaking the truth (James 5:12), maintaining the sanctity of the home (Ephesians 5:22-64), settling differences between Christians in accordance with the Word of God (1 Corinthians 6:1-8), not engaging in carnal strife but showing a Christ-like attitude toward all men (Romans 12:17-21), exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and maintaining a life of prayer (Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6), including the privilege, when sick, Of calling for the elders of the church to pray and to anoint with oil in the name of the Lord (James 5:13-18).


one true Church, the body and bride of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-32), composed of all true believers of the present age (1 Corinthians 12:12-13) and the organization of its members in local churches for worship, for edification of believers and for worldwide gospel witness, each local church being autonomous but cooperating in fellowship and work (Ephesians 4:11-16).


the Christian should observe the ordinances of our Lord Jesus Christ which are: (1) baptism of believers by triune immersion (Matthew 28:19) and (2) the threefold communion service, consisting of the washing of the saints' feet (John 13:1-17), the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:20-22, 33-34; Jude 12) and the communion of the bread and the cup (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).


his existence and personality as the great adversary of God and His people (Revelation 12:1-10), his judgment (John 12:31) and final doom (Revelation 20).

Second Coming

The personal, visible and imminent return of Christ to remove His Church from the earth (1-Thessalonians 4:16-17) before the tribulation (1 Thessalonians 1:10; Revelation 3:10) and afterward to descend with the Church to establish His millennial kingdom upon the earth (Revelation 19:11-20:6).
