Grace Baptist is a vibrant and growing church family committed to our mission as a Bible-centered ministry to glorify and worship God through the salvation of sinners and the discipling, edifying and equipping of God’s people. Our vision is, “Love God, Love People, and Serve Others” based on the scripture found in Matthew 22:37-40.
We are committed to glorifying God in each and every one of our ministries. No matter what stage of life you are in, whether you are married or single, with children or without. Whether you are young parents, empty-nesters or grandparents, Grace Baptist Church has a place for you.
We believe that the church is not the building but the people. This means that at Grace Baptist Church we emphasize relationships. We’ll seek to help you build your relationship to God through Jesus Christ, and then we’ll give you opportunities to build lasting relationships with other people. People and their walk with God matter at Grace Baptist Church. We think you’ll sense that as you worship with us.
