Grace Baptist Church exists to advance the kingdom of God by earnest prayer, faithful teaching and intentional discipleship.
In Matthew 28:19–20, Jesus Christ told his followers to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Our mission is to continue the mission that Jesus began with his disciples. Namely, to pray, teach and make disciples until he returns.
At GBC, we are committed to dependent prayer, clear teaching and maturing disciples!
GBC tries to organize our ministries around three profound core values found in the life of Jesus and his apostles. These profound values are:
The work of God is accomplished in the earth by his sovereign decree through the prayers of his people. Thus, GBC will be a church that prays to the Lord of the harvest to do his work through His word and our hands (Matthew 6:1-10; 9:35-38.)
The Church of Jesus Christ is established and sustained only by the word of God. Therefore, GBC will be committed to teaching and preaching the word of God (Psalm 115:130; 1 Timothy 4:13.)
Nobody grows in Christ on their own or by mistake. Thus, GBC will intentionally and strategically walk alongside believers in order to present them fully mature in Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Colossians 1:28; 2 Timothy 2:2.)
Now, out of these three core values flow two core commitments. These core commitments are:
A necessary by-product of knowing Jesus is that you will tell others about him. Therefore, at GBC, we will eagerly and purposefully make him known by taking the gospel to the lost in our community.
2.) Church Planting
A healthy church is a church that starts and/or supports other local churches. Built into who we are at GBC, will be the NECESSITY of planting and supporting other local churches.
