Welcome to Grace Bible Church
GBC exists to share the love of Christ through the word of truth with the people of Gainesville
We have a passion to systematically preach and teach the full counsel of God (Acts 20:27), and instill a passion in our members for the word of God. We want to share a passion for the word of God through verse by verse expository preaching which does not lose sight of the broader context of Scripture. Put simply, we want to study the bible to understand it as it was written, then explain it, and encourage one another to apply it in our lives.

Due to limitations of our language, one might not recognize in verse one that Paul addresses the entire church at Ephesus using the second person plural (translated “you”). In the South, this pronoun could be translated “y’all” while Californians might say “you guys.” In other words, Paul implored the entire church to walk in a manner worthy of their calling. In doing so, he called everyone to do the same as individuals. However, we must not miss the overall context of the church. God intends for the Christian to grow within the framework of the body of Christ. Therefore, the Christian who does not spend regular time with the body cannot grow. Read more
