Who We Are:
The Grace Bible Ministry comprises a collection of young professionals in health care and academia based in the United States, united by a joint purpose to spread the love of God through faith and action. Founded in September of 2011, we embarked on a bold journey to be intentional about sharing Christ and His free gift of salvation by faith through grace to the world.
Our faith is deeply rooted in the truth that Jesus Christ has paid it all on Calvary, and today salvation is through faith as seen in (Ephesians 2:8-10 KJV and Roman 4:5 KJV). We also believe in eternal salvation, that once saved, we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise as a guarantor of our inheritance until the day of redemption (Ephesian 1:14 KJV). Furthermore, we believe that the key to understanding the Bible is found in 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV that instructs us to “rightly divide the word of truth.” We invite you to view the full tenants of our faith on (link).
Here at the Grace Bible Ministry, we have four essential core values that serve as the bedrock of everything we do. These values are love, faith, activism, and community.
1. Love: God is love and love is the most powerful thing that exists in this world. It is rare, if not impossible, to find someone who would die in place of a good and noble person, yet God in His great love for mankind laid down His life for the sinners. We love Him today because He loved us first. Moreover, He asks us to love each other as He loves us, selflessly, putting the interest and needs of others before our own. As a ministry, we are devoted to showing this Christ-like compassion to the world as love is the greatest gospel we have to share.
2. Faith: Faith is a firm assurance in things that we cannot see, “you believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me” (John 20:29 KJV). Consequently, without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrew 11:4 KJV). We believe and trust in Christ’s finished work for our salvation. It is not our faith alone but the perfect faith of Jesus Christ that provides for righteousness and eternal security (Romans 3:21-22 KJV).
3. Activism: As believers and children of God, co-laborers with Jesus Christ, we are called for the purpose of good work. While our work is not a prerequisite for salvation, we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad (2 Cor. 5:10 KJV). With all of the suffering, pain, and hurting that exists in this world, this world needs us. Via activism, we fight for human rights, education, and health and social equity for underserved communities. “Often at times when a crisis occurs we wait for divine intervention, yet we are the hands of God (GOBM)” and God is waiting to use us as his vessel to stop the bleeding. This is why we’ve founded the Hands of God Foundation (HOGFund), you can learn more by visiting (link).
4. Community: “We do not build in isolation, we build in the community,”- ARB. Together there is nothing we cannot achieve. The infamous African proverb states, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Without community, it would be impossible to solve the complex challenges of this present age. We are called to be our brother’s and sister’s keepers with deep belief in mentorship, community engagement, and network-ship to advance professionally and spiritually.
