Grace Bible Church NOLA
The glory of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ, manifested in the church in New Orleans, LA.
With all authority in heaven and on earth at his disposal, Jesus commissioned his apostles to make disciples by baptizing people and teaching them to obey everything that he commanded (Matt. 28:18-20). Local churches are God’s choice means of accomplishing this lofty goal (Acts 2:44-47; 1Thess. 1:8). Therefore, we are currently equipping a core team who will relocate and begin laboring to this end in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Why New Orleans?
The city’s population exceeds 390,000 people. In particular, New Orleans East is home to more than 85,000 souls in need of gospel proclamation, expository preaching, biblical counseling, and sanctifying, biblical fellowship. This is what we want to bring to the city by planting a church there.
We are currently equipping a team to relocate to New Orleans to labor there in local church ministry.

Slowly Ripening Results
William Hamilton Burns (1779-1859) was a pastor in Kilsyth, Scotland who is now known, oddly enough, for having faithfully and quietly carried out his ministerial duties in obscurity. Burns’s long-range approach to ministry is worthy of imitation and should not escape...
The Bread and Wine of the Gifts to the Church
