Grace Fellowship Church is currently not formally affiliated with any denomination or family of churches. Legally, GFC is an independent local church governed by a body of elders elected by the membership. Independence is not a posture that GFC has formally adopted, but a position it finds itself in at this time as a result of God’s providence.
We maintain a close association with many local churches with whom we share a deep affinity in the gospel of Jesus Christ. These churches include:
- Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills
- New City Baptist Church
- Grace Chapel
- Westminster Chapel
- Liberty Grace Church
- Sovereign Grace Church Toronto
- Grace Toronto
Here are some of the key relationships that are important to Grace Fellowship Church:
The Grace Connexion is a network of like-minded reformed, evangelical, and baptistic churches in the Greater Toronto Area committed to partnering together for the proclamation of the gospel, the making, and the maturing of disciples in our city, our country, and throughout the world. These churches include Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills, New City Baptist Church and Grace Chapel.
The Toronto Gospel Alliance is a network of like-minded reformed, evangelical pastors in the Greater Toronto Area who are committed to partnering together to support one another as they take the gospel to our city and beyond.
We also find significant affinity and fellowship with many ministries including:
Desiring God Ministries has influenced Grace Fellowship Church primarily through the writing and preaching of Pastor John Piper. Though we are not in formal affiliation with Desiring God, we share John Piper’s convictions about the Bible’s teaching on God’s sovereignty, salvation, mission, suffering, and the way one should live the Christian life.
9Marks Ministries, founded by Pastor Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, has been formative in our understanding of how a church is to be governed.
The Gospel Coalition is a group of pastors and churches that exist to promote gospel-centered ministry and biblically-faithful resources for the church. Grace Fellowship Church shares the doctrinal convictions and theological vision for ministry as outlined in their Foundation Documents.
The Gospel Coalition Canda is a national coalition of churches across the country committed to the priority and application of the gospel in a Canadian context. The "north/south" relationship has been strong with brothers and sisters down in the States, but there has never been an effective relationship "east/west". The goal of TGC Canada is to build partnerships across the country to help one another advance the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor Paul Martin sits on the executive committee.
