Grace Missionary Baptist Church
Dothan, Alabama
We Preach The Blood, The Book and the Blessed Hope

Grace Missionary Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church. We hold to the Doctrines of God's Sovereign Grace and are Landmark Baptists.

The preaching of the Word is to take a central place when the Lord's people assemble. Our times together have a simple structure that includes prayer, scripture reading, hymn singing and the proclamation of the Word. We make an effort to keep the worship service simple and free from self promotion. We believe that God honors His Word and the pastor's primary duty is to preach it with the aid of the Holy Spirit.

While we do not completely agree with all statements in the Second London Confession of Faith of 1689 we find it closely resembles our doctrinal position.

We believe that God has an elect people chosen in Christ, the eternal Son of God, before the foundation of the world. We just as emphatically believe that the Lord Jesus commanded His church to preach the gospel of the kingdom to all nations. We, therefore, include the word 'Missionary' in our church name and seek to be missionary minded.

As Landmark Baptists we believe that the Lord Jesus established His church while He was here on the earth and promised two vital things concerning it that are the basis for our understanding that it has been and will be perpetuated:

1. The gates of hell would not prevail against it (Matt 16:18)

2. He would be with it to the end of the days (Matt 28:20)

We believe that the term 'church' is widely misunderstood today to mean a universal invisible entity to which all the saved belong. Of the over 100 times the Greek word for church, ecclesia, is used in the New Testament the vast majority of them without question refer to a local assembly. Therefore, while we believe that one can be saved and not be a part of a local assembly we do not believe that when one is saved it places them in the church.

We welcome those who are seeking the truth and those who have found Him who is Truth.
