“Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.”
The chief objective of Grace Bible Church is to worship and serve the true and living God and glorify Him in all we do. We seek to conduct our lives and services in a way that we ascribe to Him and reflect back to Him, as He enables, the characteristics of what He is, especially His Truth, Holiness, and Love.
We exist to proclaim the Word of God, to edify one another, and build up one another to Christ-like maturity. This involves equipping the saints for fruitful ministry (Ephesians 4:11,13) through teaching and discipleship, loving care for the saints, and administering the ordinances of the New Testament (i.e., Baptism and the Lord’s Supper).
We are committed to being active and involved in local and worldwide evangelism in fulfillment of Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:8. This will be accomplished locally by sharing the good news and by the impact of changed lives. On a worldwide scale, it will be accomplished by the support and sending of missionaries.
