Church Entry

 

They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together. Acts 2:42 CEV

 

 

Simply put Grace Bible Church is a group of regular people brought together by an incredible God who are seeing what they can do to get to know Him better and go with what He has for them.

 

It is a joy to see what God is doing in the lives of the people. 


Beginning with a Bible Study in Pryor, Oklahoma


In the late 1970s a group of men looking for God's truth in the Bible formed a Bible study.  The companionship grew as well as a desire to fellowship in a church where God's truth would be presented regularly.  Grace Bible Church, a non-denominational church, was formed with Doug Heck as its first pastor.  Young and old, singles and families came together as this church formed.  A permanent building and a continuing meeting place was established on South Elliott in 1985. 


Going Deeper into God's Word


The hardworking fellowship of believers were taught God's Word each week.  Classes for all ages instructed those gathering in the timeless treasures of the Bible.  Most of those attending GBC committed to the 2 year long discipleship program developed by The Navigators called 2:7.  Small groups were formed and meetings were held in various homes for this program.  Wednesday evenings included for a time an AWANA program for children which transitioned eventually into other programs. The people of GBC were faithful to strong Bible teaching at every level of church life. 


A variety of social, economic, educational, and professional backgrounds were represented.  Culturally the church is in the midst of the boundaries of the Cherokee Nation and near an Amish community as well as being rural and near the Mid-America Industrial Park.  The cultural mix at GBC represented the community in which it was positioned. 


Experiencing the Grace of God


Having a foundation built on Jesus Christ and the teaching of the Word of God the people of GBC began to experience the grace of God in many ways.  His provision has kept them going as families and as a church during a difficult economic time.  God has manifested Himself in drawing people closer, in showing them more of what He has for them, and in richly blessing their relationships with Him and others.  The remarkable joy and transformations of lives are because of His wonderful grace.  And that continues to this day. 

 

That reflects the nature of what God is bringing about in the lives of people at GBC.  It is a mystery why God decided to reveal Himself and work in such a gracious way at such a time as this at this place, but it is appreciated.

 

Since 2001 GBC has been associated with the Evangelical Free Church of America and is part of the EFCA Texas-Oklahoma District.  For information on the EFCA and the Statement of Faith please go to the website:  http://www.efca.org/
