They Shall Know Us By Our Deeds
Grace Community Baptist Church, as much as anything, defines who we are and why we are here. Grace Community Baptist Church is people and not programs. Our motto is “They Shall Know Us By Our Deeds.” Our ministry’s focus is to train and serve all people within our fellowship and to reach others in our community at large with the saving grace message of our Lord Jesus Christ. We trust that they too will become a part of our fellowship. Our prayer is that all people, no matter what their walk of life, might see our Lord Jesus clearly in all we do, and that by our actions, they too might obtain the richness and joy of life lived by grace and power through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We recognize that the Bible is the very word of the living God given to mankind. We understand the priority of knowing and obeying the truth of God’s living word. Grace Community Baptist Church is deeply committed to studying and teaching God’s word with diligence and authority. Grace Community Baptist is a teaching church, all of our ministries are intended to increase the knowledge and application of God’s word in the lives of His people and lead others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ so that they can live to the glory of God. Declaring to our community, the truth of the word is the highest privilege we have as representatives of Jesus Christ Our Lord.
The purest expression of God this side of heaven is the incarnated Word—Jesus Christ. The clearest revelation of God and His Son is His written Word—the Bible. Therefore, Grace Community Baptist Church is committed to: Praising Jesus Christ, Preaching the Word, and Practicing Truth.
Hebrews 1:3 declares Jesus Christ as the radiance of God’s glory, the exact representation of His nature, and the One Who made purification of sins. Therefore, praising Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do every time we come together. Exalting our Lord through worshipful music, sacrificial giving, and faithful preaching is our highest expression of thanks and love towards the One Who saves us.
The focus of each Worship Service, Sunday School Class, and Bible Study, is to passionately proclaim God’s matchless word, knowing that God’s word alone is the source of truth concerning His character, the nature of man, the way to salvation, and the hope of heaven.
People who have been called away from the power and penalty of sin, and to serving Jesus Christ and His church, are the greatest testimony of God’s work. And it is God’s Word, energized by His Spirit, that accomplishes His Work. Lovingly serving one another and the world around us is our highest calling in a world in need of grace. Grace Community Baptist Church is built and must remain on a foundation that includes sound biblical doctrine, spiritual leadership, and an active loving-serving fellowship. Grace Community Baptist Church is convinced that God’s faithfulness to us will continue bountifully if we remain faithful to Him and His Word.
