Our Values

Almost everyone at GraceStream is a follower of Jesus Christ.  We're not shy about that. But when a client hires us, we get paid to deliver a superior website, not to preach. Our faith will not interfere with the work we do. We think it's important, though, for our clients to know that our faith affects our work. We believe it augments our ability to deliver. Whether or not a client shares our faith, our work and our business practices will be carried out with highest integrity. Our mission and vision demand it.

Our founder, Mark Faggion, takes the cultivation of his Christian character very seriously. The Bible tells us to be diligent in our work, as if we were doing it for God directly (Colossians 3:23-24). Mark believes the Bible is clear about how we are supposed to deal with people, including our customers. We are commanded to be honest with everyone, (Matthew 5:37). Part of this principle is to admit when we are wrong and do whatever necessary to correct our mistake. Honesty and humility are bedrock to what we do (Micah 6:8).

How this is demonstrated (or bears fruit) in our business practice: When we have too much work to do and not enough time, we will be honest with you. When we could be doing more work for you, we will tell you. If we make a mistake, we will admit it and do what's is necessary to correct it. We will try not to overpromise or underdeliver (although we try to be conservative in what we promise, and we strive to overdeliver). We won't lowball a quote, and then ask for more money because of change requests that occur after the project begins. We know changes will occur and we take that into consideration when we provide a quote.
If we think our clients are asking for too much within the scope of their budget, we will tell them. If we think they would be wiser to start smaller with a less ambitious budget, we will suggest it. We will not take a payment from you if you feel that we did not provide good value for your money.

We're not perfect. But if you're interested in working with people that place high value on integrity, choose GraceStream.
