about us

We are committed to "loving God by becoming authentic, credible followers of Jesus". We assume this posture of discipleship by actively pursuing a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, intentionally participating in community with fellow believers, and boldly witnessing to our community and world. 


With this mission in mind, Grace Church works to create environments and avenues which will encourage and equip people in their discipleship journeys. 

Dave + Charmaine McCabe

lead pastors

Dave McCabe grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon. In 1971, he met Charmaine at a high school winter camp on New Years Eve. They started a long distance relationship as he headed off to Life Bible college that next fall. Charmaine arrived at Life two years later, and they were married soon after. Dave and Charmaine spent their first anniversary moving boxes into an apartment at their first ministry assignment in Ashland, Oregon. Five years later, some challenges brought them to a crossroad in their lives. As they wrestled between the choice to enter into the business world or to continue pastoring, they ultimately felt led to move to Camas to start Grace Church.  Dave and Charmaine have raised three kids: Annette, Kristen and David. They are living their dream and love the people of Grace Church.

our values

WE VALUE THE WORD OF GOD.

 
God's Word is active and alive. We read it and live it out daily.

Isaiah 55:11 + James 1:22

WE VALUE PEOPLE. 


We believe that every person, Christian and non-Christian alike, is valuable to God and to His Kingdom. People are more important than things, programs, or goals and are never to be “used”. Because people are eternally valuable to God, they are valuable to us as well.

Romans 12:13 + 1 Peter 4:9 + 1 John 4:7 + 1 Thessalonians 2:8


WE VALUE WORSHIP. 


We are committed to engaging in corporate worship to honor God and unify the body of Christ.
Psalm 99:5 + Psalm 100:4

WE VALUE PURSUING SPIRITUAL GROWTH.


We are committed to pursuing a lifestyle of consistent spiritual growth and honest accountability.
1 Peter 2:2 + Proverbs 27:17
 
WE VALUE RELEASING INDIVIDUALS INTO MINISTRY. 


Our goal is to recognize, equip, and release leaders into ministry.  We are all ministers who have been given gifts to be discovered, developed, and deployed. We have been created for ministry, gifted for ministry, authorized for ministry, and we are needed for ministry.
1 Corinthians 12:14-20 + Ephesians 2:10
          
WE VALUE SERVING OUR COMMUNITY. 


The local church is the hope of the world. We desire to love and serve those outside the faith in practical ways.
Matthew 5:13-16
