Who We Are 


Grace Baptist Church (GBC), located in Charlottesville, Virginia is a Southern Baptist Church and is a part of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV).  We believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God and we are in agreement with The Baptist Faith and Message adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention June 14, 2000.  To view the Baptist Faith and Message click on the following link:  http://www.sbc.net/bfm/bfm2000.asp


GBC pastoral messages are typically expositional.  We believe that preaching and teaching through a book of the Bible is the best way to learn God’s Word.  In Adult and Youth Sunday School classes we teach through one book of the Bible, in the morning worship we preach through another book, Sunday night another book, and Wednesday night another book; learning four books of the Bible in parallel.  Occasionally, we teach and/or preach on a particular topic.  Our goal is to teach what the scripture means and to explain its relevance for today. 


Our worship services include both contemporary and traditional Christian music.
