We are Grace Baptist Church – a ministering people of God, reaching beyond our walls to the needs of our local and global community.  We are an intergenerational faith community called and committed to a life of love and servanthood through the experience of celebrative worship, the development of each person’s gifts and the work for peace and justice.

In our diversity we find strength and a way to understand the inclusiveness of God.  We recognize each individual as a child of God.  We welcome and affirm ALL people, who and where you are, to join in our common mission through participation and leadership in this community of faith.
