Our Church is a diverse church family with a great history, but even brighter future as we seek to reach our world through making disciples of Jesus, equipping leaders, and multiplying the body. We believe that the church is not just a place to go, but a people to join as a community.

Lead Pastor, Dennis Archibald, has served the body of Christ for over 5 decades. He began ministry in Jamaica and migrated to the USA in the mid 1980’s. In 1994, he was led by the Spirit to erect a church in Miami Gardens. Through countless hours spent seeking God for direction; it was confirmed and Grace United Community Church was born.

Grace desired to be a church that lives in community, lives on mission, and lives out the celebration of God's glory. The small congregation recognized that their place in this community was to be a church that sends its resources and people to others and eventually become a church that is deeply involved in the community.

Grace United Community Church (GUCC) launched its first service on November 6, 1994 with 93 Covenant Members. Today, Grace United Church is active and effective in the community and it faithfully declares and demonstrates the gospel to the community and beyond.

What we Believe


1. That both Old and New Testaments constitute the divinely inspired word of God.

2. In one God existing eternally in three persons- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. That Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and was born of the

Virgin Mary. That Jesus became mean without ceasing to be God in order that he might reveal God and redeem sinful men. That Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried, and raised from the dead. That he ascended to heaven and is now at the right hand of the Father as our intercessor.

4. That the Holy Spirit came forth from the Father and the son to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and judgment: to make His disciples effective witnesses and to regenerate, sanctify, comfort and seal those who believe in Jesus Christ.

5. We believe in the Baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart and the speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. This is the initial evidence of the Baptism with the Holy Ghost.

6. That man is depraved in that of himself he is unable to remedy his lost condition is depraved.

7. That salvation is the gift of God brought to man by Grace and received through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ whose Atoning Blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.

8. That God’s standard of living for his people is holiness, which is made possible through the enabling power of God.

9. In water baptism of those who believe in Jesus Christ, symbolizing the believer’s union in death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

10. In the observation of the Lord’s Supper commemorating the sacrifice of our Savior for all mankind.

11. That the life of the believer is to be separated from the world by consistent conduct before God, and to be the world, a life-giving light.

12. That divine physical and spiritual healing is possible through faith in Jesus Christ, which Jesus by His vicarious death provided for us in His Atonement.

13. In the personal Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ.
