Welcome!

On behalf of the family of Grace Baptist Church I wish to extend to you our sincere thanks for your interest in our ministry. Our church exists for the specific purpose of leading individuals into a vibrant personal relationship with God through saving faith in His Son Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their knowledge and likeness of Him. In worship, in Bible study and prayer, in fellowship and in service we are discovering together the joy and power of new life in Christ.

-Mark Sjostrom, Pastor/Teacher





What We Believe

We believe the Bible is God’s written revelation to man. The 66 books comprising the Old and New Testaments were inspired by God in every word and is therefore absolutely infallible and inerrant. Thus the Bible is our ultimate and final authority for faith and practice.

We believe there is only one living and true God, an infinite eternally existent all-knowing Spirit, perfect in all attributes. We believe that within the unity of the Godhead there exists 3 persons—God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit who are co-eternal and coequal in essence yet distinct in existence.

We believe Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God possessing both absolute deity and perfect humanity. In coming to earth virgin born, He voluntarily set aside the independent use of some of His divine attributes. He willingly accepted the essential characteristics of humanity without losing any degree of deity. He was fully God and fully man living a sinless life to ultimately sacrifice it as our a sin-bearing substitute on the cross of Calvary for all who would believe. He rose bodily from the dead 3 days later from the grave, ascended to heaven and is coming again.

We believe the Holy Spirit to be a divine person (equal in essence with the Father and the Son) actively involved in the world, restraining evil, convicting the lost of sin, bearing witness to the truth of the gospel, acting as the Agent of the new birth, guiding, teaching, sealing, sanctifying and empowering believers for holy living and faithful service.

We believe man was created directly by God and made in the image and likeness of God. However, by willful choice Adam fell from his sinless and joyous state. As a result, all mankind are partakers of Adam’s fallen nature and are sinners at birth. That sinful, totally depraved nature shows itself in thought, word and deed. Thus, all men incur the just condemnation of God resulting in both spiritual and physical death.

We believe all men are in need of salvation from their sins’ rightful eternal punishment. We believe that salvation is wholly of God by grace, on the basis of the redemptive work of Christ on the cross who shed His blood in sacrificial death, received by faith, not on the basis of human merit or works. In short, we believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

We believe that with the new birth comes evidence of new life, that gradually over time the believer in Jesus Christ manifests distinctive qualities of a Christlike life growing in righteousness and true holiness. Although we acknowledge the battle all Christians have with sin and temptation and we recognize that the degree of spiritual growth will vary with each individual, we believe that evidence of new life will exist in each truly born again Christian.

We believe in the everlasting life of the saved with the Lord and in the everlasting punishment of the lost in Hell.

What Makes Us Special

Our People

We are a family of caring, friendly down-to-earth people who desire to deepen our personal relationship with the Lord and honor Him with our lives daily.

Our Preaching

In a day in which truth is so often watered-down, we’re committed to verse-by-verse expositional preaching and teaching of the Word of God straightforwardly and with depth.

Our Programs

All of the ministries of our church are biblically based for the enrichment and encouragement of those involved.

God’s Gift For You

GIFT is defined as: “Present, a thing given, a donation, to bestow.” (Romans 6:23) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Titus 3:5) “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost.”

GIFT infers that someone purchased it and extended it to the receiver for his/her benefit. (Romans 5:8) “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (I Corinthians 15:3) “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;”

GIFT must be received in order to complete their purpose. (John 1:12) “But to as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (Acts 16:32) “And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.”

GIFT rejection results in eternal consequences. (John 3:18) “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (Hebrews 9:27) “And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

If you are willing to acknowledge to God your sinfulness, repent of (turn from) your sins, and trust what Christ did on the cross in dying for your sins personally, and call upon Him to be your Saviour, you can be saved. (Romans 10:13) “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
