Community Builders

New Church Website Photo 1.jpg


Welcome to this community of Jesus Christ followers, where you are the focus of all that we do in our service of love. Your success in day to day living is the reason that Jesus came into the world and “the why” God has given the one most precious to Him, Jesus, His only begotten Son, on your behalf. [see John 10:10 & John 3:16] Inside of each person there’s the dream of finding the place of belonging that addresses the deep conversations we long to have. Those conversations that speak to the questions we have and often the sense of “I’m meant for something more” yearning to be revealed. We believe this is that place, we are that people and this is your community that you’ll have those deep conversations, get all questions answered and the very valuable purpose you have been born to give the world is revealed. Welcome to Nu Grace Nu Mercy Church International. Where we don’t believe in doing life alone, here we’re “Doing Life Together!” We invite you to come join us in this experience.

About Us

What an absolute pleasure it is for us to meet and welcome you to this ministry. We are a non-denominational bible believing church that not only teaches the word of God, its our mission to learn and apply the principles of the word of God to our own personal living. Our church is based on a community fellowship format. Simply put, we recognize that each of us have similarities that bind us together as well as differences that make us unique. It’s these truths that together help us to be all that God has created us to be. Community is the most important element in you and I experiencing the life in which Jesus Christ has paid the ultimate price: the ability to have healthy & authentic families, marriages, and children. These precious gifts combined with physical, emotional, financial, and professional success are all a part of this life as a christian. We teach, train, model, and mentor through the kingdom of God principles that will impact, improve, and empower you to win and thrive. Men, women, singles, married, employers, and entrepreneurs alike are inclusive in the great plan and purpose of God for your life and all those you love. A life of faith, family & fun — an enjoyable state of experiencing life everyday. Having a community of people that understand you, care for and about you, are there to help you, cry and celebrate with you, all the while knowing you’ll do the same for them; that’s what we are building here at Nu Grace Nu Mercy Church International. And it’s possible because of Jesus Christ and doable because of people just like you; those that want the best for themselves and every person, but like us, are not without mistakes.
