We go as Christ's body, His hands and feet (and every other part) carrying out the Great Commission and living out the Great Commandments in our own backyard and around the world. We go to take the life-changing message of God's Kingdom into a lost world. We go to carry on the work of caring for the outcast and poor as Jesus did when He physically walked the earth. This happens at Grace through supporting missionaries (with more than just finances... we truly love our missionaries and have great relationships with them), taking short-term mission trips around the country and around the world, serving in local outreach and service ministries, opening up our campus and ourselves to our community, and in our daily lives as we connect with people in our neighborhoods, at school or work, and wherever else the Lord may take us.
Grace Baptist takes fully to heart the Biblical mandate to go into all the world, teaching and making disciples. Our strong commitment to Missions is evident in our services, our finances, and our activities. We support more than 70 missionaries and their families. More than one-third of our total finances are directed into Missions, and much of that is continuous support for those we send. To learn more, contact the Missions Committee.
At Grace Baptist Church, we seek to aid and encourage our members to experience missions first-hand, expecting God to grow and expand their perspective on how they can be used in His work.

Every year we invite several missionaries to share with us how God is using them around the world, and how we can partner with them in His mission. Our conference is held each Fall.
