Core Values

Grace Baptist Church has discovered and articulated 10 Core Values.  These are things that we are passionate about and seek to minister in the light of.  They are:

  • Truth
  • Worship
  • People
  • Godly Character
  • Family
  • Friendship
  • Service
  • Relevance
  • Excellence
  • Stewardship

In this sporadic sermon series, and over the course of 2 years, the elders will preach a message on each of our 10 Core Values so that we can understand the Scriptural rationale for why we place such a high importance on these. 

Furthermore, we want these values to translate into action, so we will seek to apply the "therefore" part of our values statements.  


GBC Core Value 5: Family

Elder Matt Gibson
Joshua 24:14-15
1. The Family; what is it? 2. How the Marriage can serve the Lord. 3. How the Home can serve the Lord. 4. How YOU can serve the Lord.
