Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." Ephesians 4:2-5
WHO ARE WE
Grace Bible Fellowship is a community of believers in Jesus Christ that exists only to share God's good news of the gospel. Our goal is to live and teach that our lives can be full of joy, transparency, love and hope in the here and now, even when we are faced with change, anxiety and hopelessness on every side. We believe that life is about living into who God says we are in Christ.
Grace Bible Fellowship is an independent, non-denominational church. We are not opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to division in the Body of Christ. We believe that the true basis of Christian fellowship is to share God's love, which is greater than any differences we could possibly have.
In April of 2018 a handful of people committed to a common vision of having a Christ centered fellowship that would crossover denominational lines and would offer a practical look at true biblical faith and how to experience true freedom in Jesus Christ.

FIND YOUR FAITH
From my experience as a pastor and evangelist, most Christians don't need more sincerity, will power, determination or feel convictions about sin. The message we need to give is that Jesus Christ, spiritually alive, laid down His life for us. Why? So that He could give His life to us.
"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me." Galatians 2:20
Listen to Pastor Gary Ehlert's past messages.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that the three are coeternal and have equal dignity and power.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal imminent return.
We believe that man was created by and for God; that, by men disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead to offer us a new life and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and His life giving resurrection and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived; the resurrection call "blessed and Holy" of those in right relationship with God, and the resurrection of those not found in the book of life but cast into the lake of fire and are eternally separated from God.
