Grace Reformed Baptist Church (GRBC) is a Confessional Reformed Baptist Church.
By 'Confessional' we mean that we hold to a historical reformed confession of the Christian faith.
By 'Reformed' we mean that we trace our theological roots back to the 16th Century Protestant Reformation. It was during this powerful movement of God that men and women turned from the traditions and commandments of men and began to look once again to the Holy Scriptures as their only certain and infallible rule of faith and practice. As they looked to the Scriptures alone they began to rediscover many of the great doctrines of the Bible, which have been summarized by the watchwords: the Scriptures Alone, salvation by Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, in Christ Alone, to the Glory of God Alone. We are thankful to God for such a rich and Biblical heritage.
By ‘Baptist’ we mean that we believe that the Bible teaches that only professing believers should be baptized and become members of the church.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
GRBC confesses Jesus Christ as the only Savior and the Sovereign Lord over all of life, and is fully committed to the ible in its entirety as the Word of God written, without error in all its parts, and to its teaching as set forth in the historic Reformed Theological Standard (The Second London Baptist Confession) and in the Ecumenical Creeds.
