Grace Baptist Church Epsom

 

 

Welcome to GBCE

Grace Baptist Church Epsom is a small, warm and welcoming Reformed fellowship.

Our aim is to glorify God through the faithful preaching of His Word, and  be the kind of people He desires us to be. We endeavour to be a true and consistent witness to our local community of the power of the Good News to change lives.

You are welcome to join us for our Sunday morning and evening services or our mid-week services which comprise of prayer, sharing, bible study and an emphasis on world missions.

Please feel free to contact us for further information.

 

what we believe…

The thing that brings us together is that we trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. We can only come to this trust by knowing Him through the Bible.

Trust means that we…

• Depend on Him to be rescued from sin and its power. It is the sin of mankind that has brought death, sickness and pain into this world. This includes our sins, so we need God’s free gift of Jesus Christ. There is no other way God has shown for people to come to Him, except by accepting His death on the cross on our behalf.

• Respond to Him by repenting, accepting His forgiveness and each day, with His help, living the way He teaches us.

 

 

who we are…

We are a warm, friendly congregation with members drawn from all sorts of backgrounds and ways of life, spanning the generations.  Our Pastor Brian Moody, husband to Maria and father to Joel and Marcus, has led the church for over a decade alongside our other elder Geoff Harmer.

If you would like further information on the life and work of the church in Epsom please do not hesitate to get in touch with us  via our contact page.

 

our identity

Our church's name highlights the fact that we belong to an association of churches called Grace Baptists who believe the Doctrines of Grace. We stand for the fundamental truths of the Bible and hold to the historic teachings of the Christian faith.

We are a church:

• where coming to fully understand the Good News of Jesus Christ is our top priority.

• where sound Bible teaching is regarded as essential for Christian growth.

• that has a heart for this area and for world missions.

• that believes in teaching people, both young and old, and not entertaining them.

• that is centred on building strong relationships among believers.

• whose minister and people care about you and your family.

 

our purpose as a church

Christians need to meet together to worship God, to study the Bible and to pray. As well as supporting each other we need to follow Jesus’ example by reaching out to our friends and to those in our locality, to share the good news about Jesus.

Whatever challenges we may face, understanding the teachings of Jesus puts our problems into perspective and gives us purpose and direction. If you or your friends have any questions about Jesus, the Bible, or your life, then we are willing to listen.

Visitors are very welcome at our meetings. If you would like the minister, or some church members to call on you some time, we will be glad to do so.
