Graafschap Church is a Christian community in Holland, Michigan, where we have been since this area was settled in 1847. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to join in the praise and worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have seen generations of God's blessings and continue to be a 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 they move deeper into. The word is the lens through which we should view theology, ministry and all aspects of life.
The Apostle Paul defined the "Word" concisely in 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 when he wrote, "Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve." Simply put, the Bible is all about Jesus' life, death and resurrection, and the implications it has for us and the 1000's of years of faithfulness to generations. It is the fulfillment of Gods promise to Adam.
