We exist to make disciples of Jesus in our neighborhood of Poe Mill in Greenville, SC.
Our vision is to be a revitalized church that revitalizes other churches.
We want to be a church that Has your back
Sometimes we feel like no one has our best interests in mind, that we have to look out for ourselves because no one else is. At Griggs we aim to create a community of Christian friends who hear one another and help one another so that no one feels alone.
We want to be a church that Redeems past tragedies
We fall, we stumble, we sin. We make choices and decisions to be sure, but some of our failures are linked to the pain and suffering we have been through. At Griggs we believe that Jesus can use even evil for good and we aim to show people how their story, no matter how dark, can shed light on the gospel.
We want to be a church that Leads you to a bright future
There is nothing more disheartening than having nothing to look forward to. We believe that following Jesus ensures better living and thus better days ahead. Even when we suffer for Jesus, it’s better than suffering for the enemy. Our aim is to help you look forward to a life with Jesus in the world and the one to come.

The Holy Scriptures
The Holy Scriptures are the old and new testaments. They alone are the inspired word of God.
II Timothy 3:16-17
There is one triune God eternally existing. He is manifested in three personal distinctions - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 1:2
He is the eternal Son of God. He is fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He revealed God and redeems sinful man. He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice. Our justification is made possible by His resurrection from the dead. He ascended to heaven, sitting at the right hand of God the Father, where He serves us as savior, king, and friend.
The Holy Spirit
He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; He regenerates us, indwells us, and seals us until the day of redemption. He gives us spiritual gifts so that we can serve the church and reach the world.
Mankind was created in the image of God. Men and women were created to enjoy God, marry each other, and live in harmony with others and the earth. However, because of the sin of Adam and Eve (after being tempted by Satan) the entire human race is fallen, sinful by nature and separated from God, unable to reconcile with God by human effort.
Salvation is the gift of God. It is given to mankind by love and grace. It’s received by repentance and faith in Jesus, whose blood was shed on the cross for our forgiveness and whose resurrection secured the defeat of Satan, sin and death.
The Church is the body of Christ. It’s universal, consisting of all followers of Jesus of every time and place. It’s also local, consisting of believers in a certain geography. The local church takes the Lord's Supper to remember Jesus' death and baptizes the saved for a testimony of their new life in Christ. As the people of God, they serve others using their spiritual gifts, follow the leadership of qualified pastors and deacons, and lovingly fellowship around the gospel.
All people will stand before Jesus to be judged. Those who accepted Jesus in life will be given eternal life in the new heaven and new earth and those who rejected him will suffer what is known as the second death in the lake of fire.
The Second Coming
Jesus will personally return to earth one day to rule and reign. His return is imminent. At His return he will establish his kingdom physically, lovingly dwelling with his people for all eternity, wiping away all tears from their eyes.
