Graafschap Church is a Christian Community in Holland, Michigan, where we have been since Europeans settled this area in 1847. We welcome people of all ages to join in the praise of our Savior, Lord Jesus Christ. We have seen many years of God's blessing and continue to be a contemporary and vibrant multi-generational community yearning to be used by God to transform His world.
At our church, you will hear "The Word of God...” repeatedly because it is the most important truth that we can know and experience. However we refer to it The Bible, The Word or The Gospel, it is not merely a message that needs to be shared with non-Christians, but also with Christians. It is not something that mature Christians move on from, but rather something that they move deeper into. The Word is the lens in which we should view theology, ministry, and all aspects of life.
The Apostle Paul defined the "Word" concisely in 1st Corinthians 15:3-5 when he wrote, “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.” Simply put, the Word or The Gospel is all about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and the implications it has for us and the 1,000's of years of faithfulness to generations before Jesus Christ
