About Grace Bible Church
Grace Bible Church Redwood City is a community of believers committed to teaching and applying the whole counsel of God through expository preaching and carefully selected, age appropriate material for our children. Our desire is to honor Christ together in our community.
Grace is central because it is by God's grace that we're even here. He has seen fit to assemble this body of believers to exalt His son, Jesus Christ — the One whose death and resurrection gives us peace with God and the hope of heaven. You'll find that His grace is the common thread that runs through every ministry and expression of worship here.
Bible is likewise significant. It speaks of our whole hearted commitment to God's Word in everything we teach and do. We teach that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man, given to us by the Holy Spirit and constitutes the plenary inspired Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Church, however, is paramount because of its absolute uniqueness. While "Grace" and "Bible" were our choice in defining who we are, "Church" was mandated by God — as revealed in His Word. It is His designation for the assembly of people called by His name. As such, our course has been charted by God; our destiny has been planned by God; our members have been chosen by God; our purposes have been defined by God.
It suggests both genuine fellowship within our church family and an open door to those around us. As members of one body, we seek to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3). As a light in our community, we're a place of peace for those in chaos, a place of forgiveness for the guilty, and a place of hope for the hopeless.
We trust you'll discover God's grace among us. Our prayer is that we'll live up to His name.
Not to mention
At Grace Bible Church, we believe in the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, the Trinity, salvation by grace through faith, and more.
What We Believe...
We believe the Bible is God's written revelation to mankind. By faith, we believe that the Bible is the fully inspired Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts, in whole or in part. We believe that the 66 books that comprise the Old and New Testaments were written under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit in such a way that the individual personalities of the human authors were preserved. With a high view of the Word of God, we believe that the Bible constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and therefore is our supreme authority.
We believe that there is but one living and true God, who is the creator of all things and sovereign judge over all creatures. We believe that God is infinite, all-knowing, and perfect in all His attributes; one in essence, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Equal in every divine perfection as one, yet revealed in distinct and harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His true humanity, in His virgin conception, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary suffering and death for the punishment of the sins of those who trust in Him, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory yet to come. We believe that Jesus Christ will return to receive the church universal, which is His Bride, unto Himself at the rapture and that He will, returning with His church in glory at the end of the seven-year tribulation period, establish His millennial kingdom on earth. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the one through whom God will judge all mankind. As the mediator between God and man, the only God-man, is the final judge of all who fail to place their trust in Him as Lord and Savior.
We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are saved from the penalty of sin, born again unto eternal life by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, and brought into personal fellowship with God. We believe that salvation is wholly of God by grace alone and received by faith alone in Christ alone—in the merit of Jesus Christ and not on the basis of human merit or works. We believe that all the redeemed once saved are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the redeemed and the unrepentant; the redeemed unto the resurrection of eternal life and the unrepentant unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.
We believe that all who put their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual body, the church, of which Christ is the head. We believe that the formation of the church began on the day of Pentecost and is charged with the commission to worship God, to serve, edify, and equip His saints—the church, and to be a holy and loving witness to the world, including the responsibility to proclaim the Gospel to every living soul for the promotion of repentance and faith, personal joy and peace, devotion and growth, and love and praise to our Lord Jesus Christ!

And let's not forget
The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. That’s why Scripture stresses the importance of godly overseers and delineates specific standards for evaluating those who would serve in that position. At Grace Bible Church, we are committed to the pattern established in the New Testament, and we thank the Lord for the qualified, able men who provide pastoral and administrative oversight to our church family.
