Who We Are

Our Story

In 1984, Bishop Larry O. Jones was commissioned to begin a church in North St. Louis County. In the spirit of obedience, Bishop Jones became the founding pastor of Greater Grace Church, which began with two members. From the humble beginnings of renting time and space at Epworth Windsor United Methodist Church (now known as Northside UMC), Bishop Jones remained committed to the growth of this new ministry.

In 1990, Bishop Jones led the small congregation to build their first permanent church in Moline Acres. He later expanded that building in 1994. As the ministry grew vigorously, they were in need of further expansion.
In June 2008, Greater Grace built a new 36,000 square foot facility in Ferguson, MO. Since that time, the church has grown tremendously. It currently serves as a melting pot for the community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to change lives and transform the world by guiding people on the path to grow in the Lord, so that they’ll become all that God designed them to be.

What We Believe


The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (II Timothy 3:16)


There is one God, revealed as the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, and manifested in us as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16)


Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice. The doctrine of salvation is full repentance towards God, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. We believe each component is essential and required for the biblical standard of salvation.  
(Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; I Peter 3:20, 21; Mark 16:16; Titus 3:5)


As Christians we are to love God and one another. We are to display the qualities of a holy life, both inwardly and outwardly. We believe in worshipping God with a joyful heart. There are supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, which are for the church today.
(Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10)


The gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We adhere to the Great Commission, which is to preach and teach the gospel to all nations. We believe that it is through the preaching and teaching of the gospel that men and women are saved.
 (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24: 46-49; Romans 6:3-4)


Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment.
