Church Family, I have talked during the service and prayer meetings as well as individually with many of you about our church planting work. This next Sunday April 20th will be our last Lord's Day worship with you, our dear brothers and sisters in Christ at GFBC (as members at least...we do plan on visiting and keeping up!).

GfBC Begins the Heidelberg Catechism

Each Sunday, GfBC quotes a small portion of a catechism or creed during the service.  This month, we will begin walking through the Heidelberg Catechism. The following is a short history of this catechism: I. History. Soon after the introduction of Protestantism into the Palatinate in 1546, the controversy between Lutherans and Calvinists broke out, and for years, especially under the elector Otto Heinrich (1556-59), it raged with great violence in Heidelberg. Frederick III, who came into power in 1559, adopted the Calvinistic view on the Lord's Supper, and favored that side with all his princely power. He reorganized ...

After several years of searching, we are pleased to announce that on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014 papers for the new property located in Tomball, TX were signed.  This process has taken over two years and has included many different places in which we were hopeful about building.

GfBC Location Change

Once a year Grace Family Baptist Church relocates to accomadate the congregation of the Seventh Day Adventist Church where we meet.  We generally try and make that weekend coincide with the Semper Reformanda conference.  However, this year we were unable to make those dates match.

Join VBM for a Tour of Israel!

VBM IsraelDear Friends, Reading about the Grand Canyon and standing near the edge of it to gaze at its splendor are two different experiences. Similarly, walking in the very places we read about in the Scriptures is a unique, once in a lifetime experience. Imagine standing on Mount Olivet, the very place from which our Lord ascended, or riding a boat across the Sea of Galilee where he walked across the waters. Imagine kneeling in the Garden of Gethsemane and reading about our Lord praying with drops of blood on the night before his crucifixion. February 15-25, 2014 we will ...

Family Driven Faith Conference - Indonesia

We recently received this email from Missionary Kyle Blaze regarding the "Family Driven Faith" conference scheduled for Indonesia in January.  Please be in prayer for these brothers: Greetings in Christ, My name is Mr. Blaze and I am currently serving the name of Christ in South East Asia (Indonesia). This land contains the largest population of Muslims (in concentration) in the world and represents several of the largest unreached people groups to date. A few months ago, I stopped into a local book stand and to my amazement, I saw the book "Faith Driven Family" (as it is translated here ...
