Welcome to Grace Reformed Baptist Church. We are ordinary people whom the grace of God has dramatically changed through regeneration and sanctification. We believe that the ordinary means of God’s grace are sufficient to conform us to the image of Christ. That is the hearing and study of Scripture (John 17:17) and meeting together for prayer and to stir up one another to faith and good works (Hebrews 10:24). We take the command to evangelize the world (Matthew 28) seriously and engage in corporate as well as personal evangelism.
Pastor Brian planted Grace Reformed Baptist Church in 2020. He has served as a pastor in various roles for the last ten years and received formal and informal training along the way. He is currently enrolled at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. He has received Biblical Counseling training with the Association of Christian Counselors and the Christian Counseling Education Foundation. He has had the joy of being married to his wife Michelle for thirty-four years, and together they have seven children and one granddaughter.
From Pastor Brian: I love leading the people of God and worshipping with them, and watching God change the lives of believers for their good and His glory. If you are looking for a place to grow and serve that holds the Word of God in high authority and has a loving community, I would love to meet you.
We follow the command to disciple the followers of Christ to be a work of the church and the individual Christian. We believe that the Bible is God-breathed and useful to bring Christians to maturity in Christ, putting off the old and putting on the new. Discipleship is a lifelong process and is to be done with patience and love, allowing the Holy Spirit to convict and change the heart and life of believers to bear good fruit.
Our attraction is Christ! We reject any pragmatic methods to grow the church and instead rely upon faithful, expository preaching and loving the lost by calling them to repentance.
We believe that worship should be joyfully God-centered, exalting the nature of God and His sovereign work in all things, particularly the person and work of Christ. We reject man-focused worship, which is evident in words that are focused upon the works of man or are pleasing to man by providing false or ambiguous hope. We sing hymns, Psalms, and contemporary songs that are carefully selected to be edifying to man and glorifying to God.
