Under the new covenant, Jesus Christ purchased every Christian to be a priest to the living God (Rev 5:9-10). Therefore, every Christian is equal partakers of grace as a "priesthood of all believers". There is no special class of Christian, which is why every member has a vital ministry to their local church and to the watching world (Eph 4:11-16). We encourage every member at Grace Baptist Church to look for opportunities to serve one another and the community around us. Examples of every-member ministry include:

  • Studying the Bible with another member or visitor.
  • Meeting up to read a good Christian book.
  • Inviting members or visitors over for a meal. 
  • Visiting someone in the hospital.
  • Knowing and meeting the needs of others.
  • Calling or messaging someone to see how they are doing.
  • Using the membership directory to pray for the body.  
  • Meeting together to pray for another and keep one another accountable. 


In addition to the opportunities we have to serve one another throughout the week, we also have the privilege to serve one another as we gather every Sunday. If you are a member at Grace Baptist Church, here are numerous ways you can serve the body on Sunday.
