We are an autonomous Baptist church in Marshall, Michigan, united by our faith and fellowship in the gospel..
We exist to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the glory of God.
Our vision is to be a dynamic and diverse congregation that is biblically informed, confessionally rooted, historically aware, bursting with holy affections, mobilized for effective ministry, and making a discernable impact in every part of the world that our ministry touches!
We seek to fulfill our mission and vision by directing all of our resources toward the following five objectives:
OBJECTIVE #1: To grow larger through OUTREACH. Local churches do not exist to serve themselves. They exist to bring spiritual renewal to lives, families, communities, and nations, to the glory of Christ. At Grace, we are reaching out every week with the gospel and good deeds. We want people to know that the gospel is the solution to our most pressing problems, and that gospel-shaped people are the change agents the world needs!
OBJECTIVE #2: To grow deeper through EDUCATION. Following the example of the apostles, we seek to impart the whole counsel of God to Christ's people.To accomplish this great goal, we maintain a variety of classes, retreats, and mentoring opportunities to fill you with the knowledge of God, that you might become a fully matured Christian disciple.
OBJECTIVE #3: To grow closer through FELLOWSHIP. Christ never intended for his followers to be like islands. His plan for them was to share their lives, their joys, their hopes, their pains, and their struggles with one another. He wanted their lives to overlap together in community, talking to one another, praying for one another, studying his words together, and working alongside one another in ministry. This is what fellowship is all about, and at Grace we fill our calendar with fellowship opportunities--from our Community Groups to Grace Cafe.
OBJECTIVE #4: To grow stronger through WORSHIP. We were made to worship--to glorify God with our hearts, hands, and voices. At Grace, we encourage every person to cultivate a lifestyle of worship that permeates home, work, recreation, and service. As a church, we also gather together every Sunday to praise our God together through preaching, prayer, singing, Scripture readings, and more.
OBJECTIVE #5: To grow brighter through SERVICE. When God calls a person, He calls that person to serve! For Christians, service (or ministry) is about extending the grace of God to others in concrete ways. At Grace, it is our goal to see every member involved in ministry, working both inside and outside the walls of our own church. The best way to get involved in ministry at Grace Baptist Church is through participation in a Ministry Team, a Community Group, or both!
We consider it good and God-glorifying to cooperate with like-minded churches for accountability, support, home and foreign missions, and other worthy endeavors. To that end, we maintain fellowship with many gospel-driven Baptist churches around the country. Our closest fellowship is with the churches of the SMARBC (at the regional level) the MARBC (at the state level), and the GARBC (at the national level). We also appear in the church directories of 9Marks and Founders Ministries.
