Where Can I Serve?
Christ told His disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Grace Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community and spreads overseas to every nation. The members of Grace Baptist are involved in a variety of outreach ministries from door-to-door soulwinning, bus route, hospital visits, nursing home, and even to the state prisons. Grace Baptist Church also has an active “Faith Promise” Missions program that currently supports 38 missionaries all over the world!
Grace Baptist Church believes that we are obligated by the Word of God to spread the Gospel Message around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or simply being faithful to the weekly organized soulwinning efforts of our church.
Music & Worship
Christ-honoring music and worship is something we strive for in every service. At Grace Baptist Church, preaching is King and music is Queen. Pastor Tim works diligently at keeping the preaching passionate and powerful by God’s Spirit. Many of our church members get involved in the music ministry and sing in our choir each week, which sets the tone for the preaching of the Word of God. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Grace Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Pastor Tim makes himself available to the members of Grace Baptist Church for any counseling that may be necessary. Pastor Tim’s role in listening, understanding, helping, encouraging, and Biblically directing struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. We believe that “effectual fervent” prayer moves the Hand of God. Grace Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible preaching. We want the Lord’s House to truly be “a house of prayer!”
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Grace Baptist Church holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main services every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening for children 3 years old and up. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games and special music, to object lessons.
Jesus said, “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” What a great opportunity of service our bus ministry provides! Every week our church bus brings many young people to church to hear the gospel. We see people trust Christ as Savior every week through this outreach!
Every service Grace Baptist Church offers child care for ages up to 2 years old. Our nursery workers are professional and loving church members who allow parents to be able to worship in the service without any distractions. The nursery is a vital ministry to our church and we thank the Lord for our faithful volunteers who make it happen each and every service!
