Grace Bible Church

Glorifying God by Making Disciples of Jesus Christ Wappingers Falls, NY

Who We Are

Our name, Grace Bible church, describes who we are and what we believe. Grace is what God extended to us in granting us salvation from sin through faith in Christ Jesus and not by works (Eph. 2:8.9). The true Christian is to grow in the Lord's grace (2 Peter 3:18), to stand firm in it (1 Peter 5:12), and to extend that grace to others (Ephesians 4:29).. Bible is the center of our name and central to what we believe and all that we do. We are committed to the fact that the living God, Creator of the heavens and the earth, who is eternal, infinite, almighty, all knowing, sovereign, holy, loving, gracious, merciful, true, unchanging, and triune (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), has revealed Himself in the Bible. We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the plenary and verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, His only special revelation to man, and are the sufficient and final authority for faith, life, and godliness. While the Creation tells us of God's existence, His eternal power and divine nature, the Bible reveals His other attributes including His love, plan of salvation and manner in which we should live.

Church describes the relationship we have with God and one another. We are those God has called out for Himself to be His people (1 Peter 2:9-10) who will worship Him (John 4:23-24), tell others about Him (Mark 16:15), and help one another live for Him (Ephesians 4:11-16). True Christians are adopted children of God (1 John 3:1), fellow heirs of Christ (Romans 8:17) and therefore brothers and sisters in the Lord (1 Corinthians 7:15, etc.).

Grace Bible Church is an independent, non-denominational church directed by its leaders under the authority of the Holy Scriptures and its membership. We are in association with IFCA International and seek to carry out cooperative ministry with other churches of like faith and practice while striving to remain separate from ungodliness, worldliness and doctrinal heresy.

Our Services

What are services like?
We open with a music set to help the congregation focus mentally and emotionally on God. Music styles vary from week to week from traditional hymns, to CCM, to country/bluegrass - reflecting the diversity of people in the congregation. This is followed by a time of personal and corporate prayer. Central to the worship service is the expositional preaching of the Scriptures - sermons are usually about 45 minutes in length

What is the community like?
We reflect the community in which we live - multi-ethnic, multi-generational. The folks are friendly with a great desire to know and serve the Lord.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You will be welcomed with open arms. This is a good place to learn about Biblical Christianity. We have quite a few people that are not yet Christians that attend regularly in their quest to understand the Bible and know God. However, we do not cater to the feelings of non-Christians (or Christians) for we are forthright in declaring what God has revealed in His word with greater concern for pleasing Him than people.
