The Bible sets forth two fundamental truths: God is righteous and man is wicked. Because of this, the most important question facing man has always been, “How can a sinful man find acceptance with a holy God?” Ex 23:7 and Dt 25:1 set forth the law which forbids the justifying of the wicked and the condemnation of the righteous which further exacerbates the problem of reconciliation between a holy God and sinful man. The gospel of Jesus Christ relieves this tension. The gospel of Jesus Christ answers the question of how a sinful man can find acceptance with God and it does so in a manner consistent with God’s holiness and righteousness.

The LBCF of 1689 highlights the ministry of the word in connection with saving faith: “The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the word…” It should come as no surprise to reformed Christians that God places a great emphasis upon preaching in the church of Jesus Christ.

We are people who really need a Saviour, and have given up looking for functional saviours in religion, politics, careers, or vice.
In the mid 90s, several Christians in Chilliwack began meeting together with the desire of seeing a Biblical church established; a church where the primacy of God’s Word was emphasized in both doctrinal matters and practical application. Under God’s rich blessing, the Free Grace Baptist Church formally constituted in January 1998. We are continually striving to understand the Word of God and put it into practice in our families, church, and society at large. We are also a member church of the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America.
