Our Mission & Vision

We are a Christ centred community of believers in the one, true, risen Savior…Jesus Christ.
 
Grace Bible Church came into existence in 2007 when two local churches merged to become one.  Now as a member of the Evangelical Free Church of Canada, we are a diverse group of people that simply want to live so that God would be honoured and glorified by all we do.
 
As a family focused church, we intentionally work at growing Christ centred families as we prepare people to start their own Christ centred walk with the Lord. A healthy family enjoys spending time together; to worship the Lord, to have fun and to enjoy life together.
 
We would love to meet you and introduce you to the family of Grace Bible Church. Come out on Sunday and prepare to be blessed!

Our Staff Team:

Our staff team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
