About Us

Our Name: Grace Baptist Church

Grace is at the core of what we believe (the doctrines of grace), and how we live (we were saved by grace, and we are enabled to live the Christian life by grace).

Baptist expresses some of our distinctives - namely a conviction of believers only baptism by immersion only and a proud history of Bible-centered thinking.

Finally, Church is simply the designation that God has given for any biblical local body. It is a term rich with meaning and we wear it proudly.

Our Mission: We exist to see the hearts and minds of all people consumed by the matchless glory of Christ.

In this statement we strive to seek a biblical balance. Too often churches will either shun doctrine and promote the emotional or will shun emotion and exalt the mind. Biblically, these things cannot be separated. God commands the whole of our being. We must lead with our minds and be fueled by our hearts. We are consciously aware of the need to minister in the local region where God has placed us. At the same time, we recognize that we are part of the universal body of Christ. As such our concern is not only for our particular tribe, but for the kingdom of God as a whole. The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. One theologian has modified that to say that our chief end is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. He further explains that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. Thus the unparalleled glory of Christ is our chief end, and that is attained, not by half-hearted interest, but by being absolutely consumed by Christ. That is our passion for ourselves and for others.
