Our Story

God’s Grace Bible Church (GGBC) began when a group of like-minded Christians came together with a common passion to know God more fully, love him more deeply and serve him more faithfully. God’s Grace Bible Church began in 2007, meeting in Pastor Jon’s Living Room with children’s Sunday School in the basement. Since that time we have outgrown our initial location, but the goal of the church has not changed.

GGBC began and exists not as a place where people can come to be entertained, but rather a place where people can come to get real answers for real questions about life. Where they can come to know God more fully through his word, where they can get involved in real and meaningful relationships with others who know and love the LORD and where they can be more fully equipped to serve God in the specific manner he calls them to.  

GGBC is a place for all people who desire to know God more fully, no matter where they are in their relationship with Him. 

Our Beliefs

God’s Grace Bible Church - Statement of Faith

We believe in one God who is manifested in three equal, infinite and perfect persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  

We believe that Jesus Christ was both fully God and fully man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross accomplished fully, once and for all, our redemption. Jesus served as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. Jesus was resurrected from the dead and now sits in Heaven where He is our High Priest and Advocate. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit works in the lives of people to regenerate them to bring them to faith in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit also serves to empower the believer to live a life where they are convicted of sin and progressively seek to turn from sin and glorify and honor God.    

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, both Old and New Testaments, without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the final authority for faith and life.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is eternally separated from God apart from belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

We believe that those of us, who are called to faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, are sent into the world to go forth and make disciples as well as to proclaim the name of Christ. We also believe that every person should have an opportunity to carefully examine the facts of Scripture and make an informed and intelligent decision about Jesus Christ.   

Our Pastor

Pastor Jon is the founding Pastor of God’s Grace Bible Church. Prior to entering full time ministry, Pastor Jon worked in Finance and Management Consulting for various Fortune 500 companies. He is a graduate of Hobart College in Geneva, New York (BA, Economics and Political Science) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois (MDIV). He is currently completing his D.Min from Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, PA.   

Pastor Jon was born and raised a Jew and came to faith in Christ after many years of unanswered questions led him to doubt the very existence of God. He is passionate about sharing God’s truth with others and helping them work through questions they have that stand in the way of them living the lives that God has called them to.

His goal as a Pastor is to help people know God more fully, love Him more deeply, and serve Him more faithfully.
