You are welcome at Gravelly Baptist Church. This is a place your faith can grow. Come and worship with us this week as we walk together, supporting one another on life’s pathway.
“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
– Ephesians 2:8-9
Salvation is wholly from God and is attained only through His glorious grace (Ephesians 2:8). We believe that anyone who is willing to be saved can be saved, while at the same time confessing that no one can be saved apart from God the Father drawing them to God the Son (John 6:44). We also know that salvation can be known only through faith in Jesus, God’s only begotten Son (John 14:6). How is this faith attained? The bible says that “…faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) In this same passage the question is asked “And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?” (Romans 10:14) Only through the faithful testimony of those already redeemed by Christ as they perform the great commission work of proclaiming the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our confession is the same as Dr. John Gerstner who said “We can save no one, but unless we proclaim to them the Gospel, God will save no one.”
