Pastor Chuck & Skye Scroggs have been in the ministry for many years. After seeking God for direction, they felt called to start a new church in Yukon, OK. Grit.Church was born in the heart of a passion to see stronger men and women of faith living it out in their community. Spiritual growth is important to our lives. Discipleship is imperative. 

The mission statement of Grit.Church is to grow people through spiritual community.

As a new church, we are excited to reach out into our community and help people win. 

Core Values

We pursue authenticity and honor God by being real with others.

We stay curious and creative to reach those who don’t know Jesus.

We have generosity that redefines how people look at church.

We express unconditional love that changes the world around us.

We enjoy life and allow good humor to be medicine for the soul.

We are created to serve in our giftedness through the local church.

We are one part of God’s church and support his work everywhere.

What We Believe

The Most Important Message

We believe that the most important message of the Church is about Jesus, his death, and resurrection. He died for you to take away your sins so that by faith you can be made right with God. There is nothing more important and central to our lives than this.

(1 Corinthians 2:1-2)

The Most Important Commandment

Love. Love is the most important commandment. Love God and love each other. Jesus said that all the writings of the old testament hang on these two commandments. We will be known by our love.

(Matthew 22:34-40)

The Bible

We believe the bible is God’s anointed words, without error, written by different men who were inspired by God. It teaches us right and wrong and corrects us. The Old Testament points to Jesus while the new testament gives account of his life on earth and the beginnings of the same Church we are a part of today.

(2 Timothy 3:16), (2 Peter 1:20-21), (John 5:39)

God

We believe there is one God. He is the creator of of the universe and has existed forever in three persons referred to as the Trinity. God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 28:19), (Ephesians 4:4-6), (1 Timothy 2:5), (Deuteronomy 4:35)

Salvation

We believe salvation is a free gift from God that cannot be earned. We can’t work for it but we accept it by faith.

(Ephesians 2:8-9), (Titus 3:5)

Baptism

We believe that baptism is a symbolic way for us to show the world that we are new people because of what Jesus has done in our life through his death, burial, and resurrection. 

(Matthew 28:18-20)

 

Grit.Church Culture

We will build a strong relationship culture

People are the most important thing. We can’t do life to the fullest without others.

(Romans 12:10)

We will build a strong invite culture

Creating a comfortable place for people to gather also makes it easy to ask them to come.

(Luke 14:23)

We will promote biblical and spiritual literacy

If we don’t grow in scripture and understand our spiritual walk, we might as well just be a club.

(2 Timothy 2:5)

We will place an importance on prayer

Prayer guides us, keeps us connected to God, and moves heaven to get involved in our lives.

(Hebrews 4:16)

We will develop a culture of unconditional love and no condemnation

God called us to love. Even Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world, but that the world would be saved through him.

(John 3:17, Luke 6:37)

We will build a culture of high accountability and true feedback

The bible gives us importance in clear communication with each other. We will keep each other accountable to the mission and vision of the church while speaking in the love and spirit of God.

(Proverbs 27:17, Hebrews 10:24, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, James 5:16, Colossians 3:13, Ephesians 4:32, Matthew 18:15-20)

Spiritual leaders will be identified, recruited, and discipled for the work of the ministry

We are all a part of the body of Christ. God created us each with a special purpose and design to fit in his work.

(Ephesians 4:11-12, 1 Corinthians 12:27-31)

We will provide a strong development culture around all leaders

Leaders left unto themselves are never as strong as those who are mentored and poured into.

(Hebrews 13:17, 1 Peter 5:5, 2 Timothy 2:2)

We will grow a culture of spiritual freedom and expression

Although there are churches who take this to the extreme, we will honor God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength in our worship and love for each other.

(John 4:23-24, Psalms 96:9, Psalms 95:6)

Membership includes all who are saved and who walk in agreement with our statement of beliefs

Every follower of Christ on earth is a part of God’s church. Therefore, they are a part of Grit.Church and we are a part of them. This is what we refer to as the “capital C” church. If anyone struggles with our core beliefs and direction of God’s call on Grit.Church, we will encourage them to find a church that better fits their specific calling in God’s kingdom and send them on with love and compassion.

(Acts 15:36-41)
