Organization Description

Our Mission — As a church, we believe that God is calling us to expand our capacity to help people find and follow Jesus in our own community and throughout the world… We do so, by living out the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39) while participating in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). 

Our Vision — The unique vision God has giving Grace Bible Church can be summarized in one word: “multiplying.” —To multiply disciple-makers and multiply multiplying churches in a setting following a university/family model…  and Grace became One church in Four locations in the Bryan/College Station area.

Our Values — Our organizational values have historically been referred to as “Our Pillars”. This is our DNA as a church:

  • GOD'S WORD: We are a church that emphasizes the knowledge of, passion for, and obedience to God’s Word.
  • GOD'S GRACE: We are a church committed to the power of God’s grace to transform our lives as we abide in Jesus Christ and allow His Spirit to work in us.
  • GOD'S PEOPLE: We believe that college students are a strategically important constituency that God has placed before us. At the same time, we are a church that views mature adults/families as the foundation through whom we reach university students, our community and the nations.
  • GOD'S WORLD: We are a church sacrificially dedicated to world missions - this has remained true since its foundation in 1965, and is reflected in our staffing, our budget, and in the use of our facilities.
