Founding Rector


Welcome you to Grace Baptist Church!

We sincerely welcome all those who have visited us here at Grace Baptist Church. Our church is a fundamental, independent, Bible believing Baptist church. More than formalities and traditions, our church puts priority in biblical teaching and living. Our church is not only focused on worshiping God but is also committed to producing Godly couples and families.

​In order to do this, the entire church people, as born again Christians by the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, need to be trained how to have time of devotion personally. Second, we will disciple our church family to have a heart for the world missions. Third, we will train our next generation to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We thank everybody who has visited our church and want you to feel welcome and “at home”. God bless.

The Grace Baptist Church has served as a pillar of love and hope in Korean community since 1985. We are a church that embraces Korean heritage and looking ahead to the things God has in store in the future. We believe the followings.

The Bible - We believe the Bible to be the revealed Word of God, fully and verbally inspired of God. We believe the Scriptures to be the inerrant, infallibleWord of God, as found     within the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation. We believe the Bible is the sole authority of our faith. (Matt. 5:17-18); Psalm 12:6-7; II Timothy 3:15-17;  I Peter 1:13-15; II Peter 1:19-21;   .

God  - We believe in one God, self-existing, infinite, and immutable who had created the heaven, earth, universe, and human being. We believe He has one nature, one essence, and one substance, yet manifests Himself to man in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; I Timothy 1:17; James1:17; I John 4:4;)

We believe Jesus Christ to be the one and only Saviour of mankind. We believe Jesus Christ to be eternally God and to possess all the attributes of Deity. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was virgin born, that He was God incarnate, and the purposes of the incarnation were to reveal God, to redeem men, and to rule over God’s kingdom. We believe Jesus Christ never relinquished any attributes of His Deity, but merely veiled them. We believe He lived a perfect, sinless life, at the end of which He was offered for all mankind as a substitutionary sacrifice for man’s sin. This sacrifice was a just payment to God for the forgiveness of sin. It was activated by His death through the shedding of His blood on the Cross and was accepted by God upon His resurrection. We believe He ascended into Heaven after His resurrection to be seated as the right hand of the Father, waiting for the time of receiving His church at the Rapture, and returning seven years later to earth to rule and reign as King for 1,000 years(Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, 43:11; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:25; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1,3,14,18; Romans 3:19-25, 5:6-15; Philippians 2:5-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Timothy 2:5, 3:16; Titus 2:10-15; Revelation 20:1-6).

The Holy Spirit - We believe the Holy Spirit of God is a person who has personality and all the attributes of Deity. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and impower the believer for godly living and service (John 3:5-6,14:16; Acts 1:5, 11:15; 1Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, 12:13).

The Man We believe that man was created in the image of God but inherited sin nature received from our common ancestor, Adam. Because of this nature, man is sinner and he is totally incapable of reforming himself or ceasing from his sin by his own power. We believe that only through the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ on the Cross  can a man be delivered from his sin. All those who reject Jesus Christ as their Savior are already condemned to an eternity in the Lake of Fire (Genesis 5:1-5; Acts 4:19, 16:31; Romans 3:10-23, 5:6-12, 6:23, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Revelation 20:11-14).

The New Testament Church We believe the local church is God’s only institution to carry out His work today. This local church is composed of members who have been saved and baptized according to the command of Christ, and have voluntarily united together for the purpose of worship, fellowship, servic, and the Lord’s Table. Baptism and Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of the church practiced by saved members. The pastor ad deaon are the only two offices mandated in the Bible and only apply to men(Matthew 16:16-18; Acts 1:15, 2:41, 11:15, 20:28; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, 14:34-36, 15:51-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:1-9; 1 Timothy 3:1-13).

The Last Days We believe in the pre-tribulational Rapture of the church saints, followed by the seven –year Tribulation. We believe pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth and His literal rule of one thousand years. Following this one thousand years is the Great White Throne judgment and then the new Heaven and new earth(1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:1-9; Revelation 3:10, 20:1-10).
