Welcome to the Grace Bible Church website. We are a dynamic church located just outside Springfield, Ohio.
PURPOSE: The purpose for Grace Bible Church shall be the teaching of the Word of God, the organized worship and fellowship of believers knit together in the love of Christ and one another, the growth and spiritual improvement of its members, bearing witness to the Lord Jesus Christ in our own community, and the spread of the Gospel of the Grace of God in all the earth.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.
Have you ever read the Bible and thought that maybe God was contradicting himself? Some verses just seem to counteract some verses that you may have just read. Is the Bible a confusing book that can not be understood? It will help us to observe the principles of 2 Timothy 2:15. Rightly dividing means simply to observe and apply any distinctions of the text we are reading.
Miles Coverdale, the English Bible scholar who died in 1569 and who possesses the distinction of being the first one to translate the entire Bible into English, saw the necessity of applying this principle of rightly dividing the word when studying the Bible. He wrote this incisive formula for sincere Bible students:"
"It shall greatly help ye to understand Scripture if thou mark not only what is spoken or wrythen, but of whom and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after."
