In September 2005 Panorama Community Church and Peace Arch Fellowship integrated into one congregation and selected the name Gracepoint Community Church in early 2006. Peter Nikkel served as senior pastor until his retirement in 2007.
In 2006 the congregation held two services weekly at 3487 King George Highway Surrey, BC (the former Peace Arch Fellowship sanctuary) and one at the Bell Centre, 6248 144th Avenue, Surrey, BC (the former Panorama Community Church site). In 2010 the congregation had a membership of 440 and an average weekly attendance of 409.
In spring 2012 the church closed its second campus at the Bell Centre due to prohibitive costs, and the two congregations joined together for the first time on 6 May 2012. At that time the church held two services with a total attendance of 550-600.
