About Grace Bible Church

Our Mission

To develop committed followers of Christ through the teaching and encouragement of God's Word.

Our Core Values

We believe the church is not simply a building constructed by men but rather the believers and members it contains. We, as believers, come together to study God’s word, celebrate His love and practice the gifts He has given us.

Our “Core Values” demonstrate our priorities and how we must live if we are to remain Grace Bible Church of Phoenix. These values guide our ministries, programs and the life of our church. As a result, we strive to evaluate all we do with these values in mind.

Bible Centered

We approach the Bible as of first importance. What we do, what we believe and what we teach comes from the authority of God’s Word. The Bible is central in all we do. It takes precedence over church tradition, a shifting culture and, especially, our own opinion (2 Tim. 3:16).

We desire to be a community of disciples who, in turn, make disciples (2 Tim. 2:2). Healthy disciples of Jesus Christ pursue a lifelong process of following and submitting every aspect of their lives to God. In doing so, we become more like Jesus and help others do the same. 

Making Disciples

Faithful Service

We desire to have a continual and sacrificial willingness to serve in the spheres of influence that God has placed us in. We do this by equipping, encouraging and empowering people to use their God given gifts and abilities, embracing the opportunities to serve God. 

We seek to build relationships with one another by reflecting the love Jesus showed us and peacefully pursuing the unity of the Spirit (John 13:34-35; Eph. 4:1-5). We recognize that God has created relationships to be a beneficial and integral part of how we enjoy God and grow in our faith. As a result, God has described how relationships should look and we strive to live according to His standard and desire.

Why We "Do Church"

Has it ever occurred to you that there are several different things people could do with their time besides attending a church service on Sunday Mornings? It has to me. Often!

However, there is a very good reason for people to gather together and “do church”.

The reason why we exist is because we believe this passage of Scripture is true:

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

… If this is true, and we believe wholeheartedly that it is, it means that there are many other benefits to belonging to a church such as; fellowship with other people, a sense of belonging, building relationships, and having a place to serve.  But what distinguishes a church from any other organized group of people should be the fact that God has given the local church a message to spread, and a mission to fulfill.  We at Grace Bible Church of Phoenix are fully committed to these!

If you are looking for a church that is committed to fulfilling the mission God has given to us, as members of the Body of Christ, feel free to join us!
