STATEMENT OF MISSION
We believe that God in His infinite knowledge has placed Grassfield Baptist Church in a precise part of Chesapeake, Virginia to preach and teach the Gospel Message, which is that "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures." (I Corinthians 15: 3-4) In order to accomplish that task, He has called out a people that are the saints of God, the body of Christ, eager to do what is good and pleasing in His sight.
We pledge ourselves in obedience to His Lordship to meet together regularly for worship and praise through prayer, music, and the preaching of His Word.
We vow to be a fellowship of caring, loving people dedicated to leading our Church Family to grow toward Christian maturity through regular Bible study, which leads to responsible Christian living.
To those people whom God puts in our pathway we will love unconditionally, meeting their physical and spiritual needs unselfishly, and giving a cup of cold water in the Master's name.
We will carry out the Great Commission through personal evangelism within our community. Those which are beyond our reach, we will support with our prayers and finances.
According to II Corinthians 5:18-20, God has given to each member of His church, the ministry, the message, and the sacred position of being an ambassador of Christ, with no exceptions.
Therefore, we at Grassfield Baptist Church have no other mission than to be His church, taking His message, through His power to a lost and dying world.
