Our Church Covenant was signed by our charter membership on October 4, 2015.
e, the members of Grace Bible Church, believe that God has placed a desire in our hearts to have a church in our community where we and our children may worship Him and grow in His grace together. We further desire that this church would be established on the strongest foundation possible so that it may actively serve the Trinity as prescribed in the Scriptures for many generations to come. In that light, we testify in the presence of God and this assembly that we most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
