About Grace Bible Chapel (GBC):

GBC is a warm and caring, community-oriented, family-focused church, located in Parkhill, ON. As a church in a rural community about 45 mins northwest of London, ON and 20 mins north of Strathroy, ON, we understand the importance and value of ministering together to reach our community and to be a light in the North Middlesex region.

Overall Responsibility:

To shepherd, manage and lead Grace Bible Chapel in its mission to glorify God through lives transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ (the true foundation) by:

  • Believing in Jesus
    Belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God is a process that ultimately provides the biblical bedrock for your faith. Our desire is to reveal the nature of God and who He created you to be in order to strengthen your faith and surrender to His grace.
  • Belonging to Family
    Relationships play an essential role in your spiritual life and in your walk with God, and they’re rooted in belonging to a greater community. In fact, Jesus commanded us to love God and love one another. We all have a need to belong, and it’s through loving, helping and protecting one another that we have opportunity to live out these greatest of commandments.
  • Becoming a Follower
    To be Christ-like is to move away from a self-centered existence to a Christ-centered life of doing and loving as He does. But this transformation isn’t done on our own – it’s begun and completed through God’s generous grace and power. Through practical steps in God’s Word, the Holy Spirit, and relationship with God and others, our emphasis is to help you become more like Christ in your own personal spiritual growth and development.
  • Building God’s Kingdom
    Discover how God is calling you to give to others what the Lord has already given to you. Acting as his hands and feet by using your gifts and talents, you can help build the kingdom by the giving of yourself in making disciples and helping others move toward spiritual maturity. Our mission is to help you fulfill this calling and live out the fullest life in Christ imaginable.
