God has called us to experience His presence. Psalm 16:11 says "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." We believe in making vertical connections to experience the presence of God, not just in church, but as a way life. We invite you to take some time to investigate what Grace Bible is all about, meet some people, and enjoy the ministry.

Worship Gatherings

Sundays @ 11am

"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship." (Romans 12:1)

We worship Jesus as the scriptures have taught us, with music, prayer, giving, scripture, and joy, everything a full and pleasing sacrifice to God. As a visitor or new believer, you won't be expected to know all the songs, but we invite you to experience the presence of God in a community of worship surrounded by Christ-authentic followers.

Neighborhood Gatherings

A great way to make connections in your community is to attend a neighborhood group hosted at the home of a member of Grace Bible. Some groups work through a bible study book, others discuss the message from Sunday, but all groups are casual, where members are free to ask questions in low stress environments. 

Neighborhood groups meet in Flint, Fenton, and Grand Blanc, so email the office to find out the details of the groups closest to you.

Our Vision

As a church, Grace Bible desires to impact our community and then reach out and beyond with the life changing message of Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

We Believe God is a Person who has revealed Himself as a Trinity in unity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three Persons and yet but one God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6)

We Believe the Bible, including both the Old and the New Testaments, is a divine revelation, the original autographs of which were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

We Believe Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, which to say, He is Himself very God; He took upon Him our nature, being conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary; He died upon the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world; He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into heaven in that body glorified, where He is now, our interceding High Priest; He will come again personally and visibly to set up His kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead. (Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:24-25; Luke 24; Hebrews 4:14-16; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 11:15-17;20:4-6, 11-15)

We Believe man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, and, in that sense, is lost; this is true of all men, and except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God; salvation is by grace through faith in Christ who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree; the retribution of the wicked and unbelieving and the reward of the righteous are everlasting, and as the reward is conscious, so is the retribution. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 23; John 3:3; Acts 13:38, 39; 4:12; John 3:16; Matthew 25:46; 2 Corinthians 5:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10)

We Believe the Church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body; its mission is to witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations; it will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air before He appears to set up His kingdom. (Acts 2:41; 15:13-17; Ephesians 1:3-6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

Our Core Values

Grace - Romans 3:23-24: God gives His Grace freely to those who believe His Son was sacrificed for their sins.

Growth - 1 Corinthians 3:7: God is the source of all life, and we wait on Him to provide growth.

Groups - Acts 2:42: Just as the early church did, we join in fellowship with one another to proclaim our King.

Gifts - Ephesians 4:11, 1 Peter 4:10-11: The Body of Christ has many parts, and we honor God when we serve Him according to what we've been given.

Generosity - 1 Timothy 6:18, 2 Corinthians 8:7: Generous living in everything--worship, praise, giving, and time--because Jesus Christ gave everything of Himself for us.

Grace has many areas to get involved in to grow in your journey with Christ. Grace Kids meet during the worship gathering on Sunday mornings while Jr & Sr High meet on Wednesday evenings @ 7pm.

1st-5th Grade

Student Ministries (Jr/Sr High)

@7 is our teen bible study. Teens have the opportunity to take a fresh look at God’s Word in a unique, creative setting through a variety of teaching styles, experiences, and activities.

Topical studies help students develop a truly Christ-honoring lifestyle.


Young Adults

Hyphen is our group for young adults ages 18-30. We have two numbers in our life, the one that says when we were born, the other when we will die. It's the hyphen that comes in between them that defines who we are. Our weekly bible study is for those who want to learn how to live in the hyphen. It's an excellent way to connect with others in the community through monthly worship nights, bible studies, recreation, and service projects. Our humble, but inspired group is warm and welcoming to whoever feels led to join. 

Adults

Wednesdays || 7:00pm || Grace Bible Church

The men and women's ministries serve the church in different ways, but both take an active role in leading. Men's ministry spreads various work projects throughout the year and actively helps in maintaining the church property. Women's ministry plans the design and decoration of the church, hosts various speakers throughout the year, and sponsors retreats. Stay current with men and women's events by visiting our events page, or following us on Twitter or liking our page on Facebook.

Our Community

God has shown us the desperate, vulnerable, and humble places He will place us in to reach His people in our community. More than ever, as if eternity depended on it, our friendships of integrity will do whatever is necessary to see people come to a personal and saving relationship with God.

Our 2018 campaign is "And The Place Was Shaken." We strive to be a church where the presence of God is felt among the people. Our re-commitment to prayer as a way of life finds its inspiration in Acts 4:31:

After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. (NIV)

We are desperate for the Spirit to create bold followers of Christ, and people of courage to speak the Word of God. When humbled and broken people can unify in prayer, the Spirit will shake our very foundations in our life, our family, in our church and in our community.
