Important Questions for Visitors
We would love to have you visit our church and know you probably have a few questions first - if we can answer anything please let us know, either through e-mail or by phone. Below are a couple of the most-asked questions we get - hopefully it's a start!
A: Grace Bible Church is a non-denominational, Bible believing, local Christian church. Our church services, including Sunday night church are expositional teaching and preaching sermons explaining the doctrines as found in our doctrinal statement. We are a revitalization plant of Grace Advance from Grace Community Church with Dr. John MacArthur, teaching what is commonly known as Calvinism from John Calvin or TULIP as opposed to Arminianism. We also believe that the heartbeat of any local new testament church is a vital men's ministry where men are being equipped to lead their families in doctrine and in truth.
You can find our church's Statement of Faith as well as more about The Gospel and our Philosophy of Ministry using the links in the About Us section of this site. Feel free to e-mail us if you have a particular question about an issue - we love hearing from visitors!
A: We have two worship services on Sundays, one at 10:45am and another at 6:30pm. Pastor Steve preaches separate messages at each service, you can keep up with our sermons online. Anyone is welcome to come to either service!
A: We are located just behind the Walmart and Sam's Club shopping center on Gosford Ave. Use our map for driving directions. We hopefully have saved a parking space for you near the front!
