Baptism Is a Powerful Object Lesson

Baptism portrays the reality of salvation by faith in Christ alone. The spiritual deadness which once characterized the sinner is buried forever and in its place God has raised the believing person to new life in Christ! Let’s celebrate what God has done! If you’re interested in being baptized, email: outreach@gracebaptist.org

Come for Prayer After Services

We are here for you and would love to pray with you! The Lord has commanded us to place our anxieties upon Him (Philippians 4:6-7) and together, bring one anothers' concerns before Him (James 5:16).  Our prayer partners will be waiting to help carry your burdens to the heart of God in prayer with you, right after service. Come on up to the front of the Worship Center, by the stage and someone will be there to meet you. It is our desire to help you trust God with your life's details, and not to feel alone.
