Grace Bible Church began as a bible study in the winter of 2002. A small group of people had a desire to plant a gospel church in their community. The home study grew and in the fall of 2003, GBC was officially launched under the oversight of Grace Bible Church Pleasant Hill, CA.
Over the years, the Grace community has met in a number of locations including the foyer of a business office, a Christian coffee house, an elementary School and a local church which allowed us to use their facilities. God’s leading and provision have been clearly seen each step of the way.
God continued to add to our numbers, so in early 2006 it became clear that we needed a facility of our own. Through much prayer and planning the construction project began and was finally finished in March of 2007.
As nice as our new facilities are, we understood that the building is not the church, the people God is gathering together in gospel community are. Grace Bible is made up of diverse people from all ages & backgrounds who love God, His word and our city. We believe we are all missionaries sent into our culture to restore people to a right relationship with God.
Looking to the future, Grace Bible Church is planning on partnering with various national ministries with the goal of extending the gospel beyond Lawrence County through missional church planting.
