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 better 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.
What is a Reformed Church?
In short, a Reformed church is one that believes and lives in light of the truths revealed in God’s Word. The chief of these truths is that salvation belongs to the LORD, meaning God saves sinners without the help or cooperation of man in any way because mankind is dead in their sin and trespasses. It is God who mercifully chooses to save sinners in eternity past, sovereignly drawing them to Himself by His Spirit through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, and graciously preserves their souls forever. God alone receives and is worthy of all the glory in the redemption of man. A Reformed church believes that God was pleased to reveal and carry out the redemption of sinners through various covenants, also known as “covenant theology”. Among other things, these covenants help us better understand and interpret the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. These truths are explained with much more depth and precision in the confessions of the Protestant Reformation, and it is to such confessions we look to not only help keep us within the bounds of orthodoxy, but also to rightly apply these biblical truths in our lives for the glory of God (see below).
