About Us

Who We Are

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. ​​​

As a congregation, we wish to express our support for Congregation Emanuel and the Jewish community of Statesville in the aftermath of the horrendous killing of eleven Jews at worship in Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. There is an epidemic of hatred and falsehood in our nation. We stand with all those targeted by hate today, whether religious, racial, gender and sexual, or political hatred.

On November 8, 1938, German opposition to Jews turned official on Krystallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when Jewish synagogues, homes and businesses were ransacked. German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was later executed by order of Hitler, wrote in the margin of his Bible: “How long will I be a by-stander?” Let us not be by-standers in the face of hatred in our nation. As the benediction goes, “The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love.”
