We are the family of God. As such, we realize that this family of His is made up of many families! Each of us having gifts and talents to contribute to the family as a whole.
What We Believe
We believe and teach that the whole Bible is God's perfect Word, that God exists in three persons; Father, Son & Holy Spirit. That Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man while remaining God and that He was born of a virgin. He died for man's sin, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later. The finished work of Jesus is a free gift to all mankind!Read Detail Belief Statement

Knowing where we have been, will help understand where we want to go...
We are a church that was planted by a church, and desire to keep this vision moving forward. In October of 1989, Rocky Mountain Bible Church Mission (RMBCM) surveyed the Parachute area. They quickly discovered that the fast-growing area did not have a non-denominational Bible teaching church, and by the end of the year, Grace Bible Church (GBC) was formed.
Under Pastor Mark Henry, GBC's first pastor, they met in a small rented room in the local activity center. Shortly following, the church moved into a store front in Parachute. By 1996, GBC was self-supporting, and the search for property began. Land was purchased in Battlement Mesa, and construction began early in 2000. January 28th, 2001 witnessed the first service at their new and present location.
Since that time, GBC has continued to grow. After 13 years, Pastor Henry was called to another ministry, and Pastor Charlie Hornick became GBC's second pastor beginning in April of 2003. He served faithfully to our church and community for 12 years. On June 7, 2015 he was called to teach and train pastors at Frontier School of the Bible. Pastor Jed Johnston transitioned into the Senior Pastor role on June 7, 2015 after serving the GBC as Family Life Pastor for almost 4 years. In 2018, Pastor Caleb Lenard joined the staff as associate pastor, working with youth, worship, and families. The transitory nature of the community has allowed GBC to serve many people through the years. GBC has continued to move ahead, planting a sister church in Collbran Colorado. We have a vision to see all come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to see His church grow through the efforts of planting other churches.
God is using our people to further this vision set forth by our Savior Jesus Christ. We have a heart for the people in our church family, our community, and around the world to grow in their walk with God and disciple followers of Jesus Christ through through His church.
