History of Voice of Grace Parish
Celestial Church of Christ Voice of Grace was given through divine inspiration and vision. The parish was born out of an irrevocable determination to pursue nothing else but the mind of God and the heart of His Son Jesus Christ; a church with its face to the world, loving others unconditionally regardless of culture, background or attainment; pouring itself out in a life of selfless service, offering security and hope to a frightened and helpless world. The whole congregation is presented as a single family united in the oneness of the Holy Trinity as a real, true and unpolluted agent of Christ on earth.
The Parish started in August 1997 at 36 Stratford Ave Ewing, NJ 08618. And steadily, it grew from a single family to four families within a month, then six families within six month, and to seven families before Dec. 31 1997. In view of space constraints, the parish moved to 46 Weber Ave. Ewing, NJ 08638 on a rental basis in February 1998 before finally obtaining the township zoning approval and C of O in 1999. By June 29 2000, the property was fully acquired by God for the Church.
The Parish is a single family church united in divine love, peace, oneness of spirit, total humility, an ideal of selfless service and complete dedication to the core values of Celestial Church of Christ as enshrined within the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence, He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost
The Celestial Church of Christ.
The Communion of Saints,
The Forgiveness of sins,
The Resurrection of the body,
And Life everlasting.
