We at Grace Church have determined to love God as the first and foremost priority in our lives. We then want to love people by very clearly sharing with them the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to baptize them, disciple them and teach them how to hear and obey the Lord for themselves and send them out to do the work of the ministry.
Motto: Loving people into the Kingdom of God.

(A) Our Vision
We want to be people who, in every way love God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength. We desire to be a church that loves people into the Kingdom of God and loves those already in the Kingdom of God, beginning with the people living in our area. We choose to love people more than our shyness can prevent, more than our limited abilities will allow, more than our facilities can contain. We choose to be a people of acceptance and grace. We desire to be so absolutely clear in our message of the gospel that those who want to know God will be able to immediately understand that only by believing the gospel and by calling on Jesus’ Name, may they have peace in this life and in the presence of God have eternal life. We want to be living examples and demonstrators of who Jesus Christ really is. We want the Holy Spirit to fill us up and flow out of us to give life and perform miracles as our Lord chooses to use us.
We want to be a people of grace, hope, help, love and forgiveness in all of our activities. We want to be a people who obey the Bible and our Lord in ministering physical, emotional and spiritual healing to those who will call on the Name of the Lord. We want to be a people that God can trust with great resources to use as He directs us. We want hurting people to be able to easily find us, and expect us to demonstrate God’s love and provision and miracles.
(B) Our Structure
Grace Baptist Church is a Christian, Elder led, Bible-believing, evangelistic, multiethnic, New Testament church. Our Elders are authorized by the Grace Baptist Church body to be the principal decision makers and spiritual leaders of our congregation. At least one of our Elders is gifted and called as a pastor. We have Deacons that are selected and ordained to take care of the physical needs of our congregation. We have trustees that are responsible for the procuring of financial and legal documents and oversee the real and personal property in our congregation’s care. We have such other officers, leaders and workers as are needed to carry on the work of the ministry in Red Rock, Texas. We have regular teaching and worship services every Sunday morning and evening and Wednesday evening. We have year-round children and youth ministries. We have our own summer camp for children and youth. We have several retreats for adult, children and youth groups each year. Our services are very informal and always include opportunities for each person to share needs and victories if they choose, and to immediately pray for spoken and unspoken needs. We offer Biblical Christian counseling for individuals and families, including pre-marital counseling. We have a Christian Day School offering classes for children in Kindergarten through twelfth grade. We have a food pantry ministry providing food for many hundreds of individuals per month. We offer music ministries, a puppet ministry, jail ministry, ‘Celebrate Recovery’ (Christian 12-step) meetings weekly, and Bible classes for all ages. Our church attempts to provide physical, emotional and spiritual help for real problems as we are taught to do in the Bible. We are affiliated with The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.
