And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
We believe that all those who have faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are united by the indwelling Holy Spirit into one spiritual and physical body called the church, of which Jesus Christ is the head. This church is made manifest in each local church that recognizes Jesus as Lord and Savior and serves Him according to the Scriptures.
All believers are priests within the household of God. All possess a common dignity, calling, and privilege of communion before and with God. All are called to offer sacrifices of themselves, praise, and thanksgiving to God. With their various gifts and callings, all believers serve God and one another. Within this household, Jesus Christ appoints elders (pastors) as undershepherds to serve His people by administering the activities of His church and providing watchcare over the spiritual needs of its members. Deacons minister to the physical needs of the church, both corporately and individually.
The membership process allows a means of maintaining the purity of Grace Bible Fellowship Church and ensuring the administration of pastoral care. We receive as members those who evidence faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and who agree with the Statement of Faith.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our church, please see one of the elders.
