Grace Baptist Church of Arlington

Who We Are

We’re encouraged that you desire to get to know us better. Grace Baptist Church of Arlington constituted on July 5, 2009. Many of the charter members had been members of Capitol Hill Baptist Church (CHBC) in Washington, DC previously and had a desire to advance the gospel in Arlington and Northern Virginia. Most of the charter members lived in Arlington or in other parts of Northern Virginia, but were commuting to Capitol Hill to hear the faithful preaching of God’s Word. Desirous to be a part of a church in the community in which they lived, these members began meeting together to sing, pray, and hear from God’s Word. In July of 2009, 31 believers covenanted with one another, constituted as a church, and called Mike Law Jr. as their pastor. The vision of Grace Baptist is the same that it was in the beginning – to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in Arlington County and beyond, by God’s grace.

Our Services

What are services like?
We meet at the Woman’s Club of Arlington on Sunday morning. Beginning at 9:30, we have our discipleship hour, a time focused on making disciples of Christ by offering classes for both children and adults. At 10:30, we hold our Sunday morning service, where we gather for about an hour and a half to sing, pray, and hear a portion of God’s Word preached. We are a family-friendly church and children are more than welcome to stay in for the service, though we provide care for children ages 0-3 as well. We often stay around to fellowship with one another after the service, and have been known to take over the food court at the Ballston Mall, meet in someone’s backyard for a picnic, or gather at a nearby park for lunch afterward. In our Sunday morning service, we want to sing rich, theologically true, biblically-based hymns and spiritual songs, read scripture, confess statements of faith that accurately summarize biblical teaching, pray biblically and corporately, and, most critically, preach from the Bible. What should I wear? You’ll find a variety of dress among our members. The only encouragement in attire is that it is modest and appropriate. We want to care for one another by not dressing in a distracting way, so that we can hear from God’s Word unhindered.

What is the community like?
We encourage our members to get to know one another and to share our burdens and sorrows with one another. We want to center our relationships on our shared faith in Jesus Christ, allowing us to partner with people who are not like us in a worldly way (race, class, or personality). After the Sunday service, we regularly spend significant time discussing the sermon and our lives. We live this out practically by often going to lunch together at a nearby food court or park after the service. Members often invite one another to each other’s homes and make time to have deeper conversations during the week.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Please come! Every Sunday our Pastor shares the central message of Christianity and shares a word of application from God directly to those who aren't Christians. If you want to know more about the Bible and about the Christ who is at the center of Christianity itself, then we're a great place for you.

Mike Law

Mike Law

Mike Law Jr. was called as the Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church of Arlington in July of 2009, when the church first constituted. Prior to Grace, Mike served as a Pastoral Assistant to Mark Dever at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Mike was privileged to grow up in a Christian home and recalls sitting under a preacher as a child and being convinced of his sin and need for a Savior. Mike’s mother first thought he would enter the ministry when he was suspended from the public school bus at age 8 for sharing the Gospel, but it wasn’t until Mike was studying Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland that he was compelled to serve the Lord in full-time ministry. Mike and his wife have been married for seven years. They live in Alexandria with their four great kids
