We hold the view that all born again Christians are members of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4), and that these believers are to gather together in a local church. We see no reason to add local church membership to membership in the body of Christ.
Those churches which have a secondary membership do so in order to grant voting privileges to members in good standing. Since we are a Bible-based church we have no need for voting, thus, the only benefit of secondary membership would not be realized.
Should a person desire to congregate with us at God’s Grace Bible Church they are welcome to do so, providing there are no Scriptural reasons to exclude them from fellowship.
The Bible excludes from attendance in a Christian church those who are engaged in sexual misconduct, idolatry, drunkenness (1 Corinthians 5) and similar transgressions which harm the testimony of a church in a community.
We publish and distribute a church directory, which is updated as needed. This contains the mailing addresses and telephone numbers of those who consider God’s Grace Bible Church to be their home.
