Spreading God's Word


Pastor Butch Grow planted Grace Chapel in 1998 with 10 people in attendance for that first service. He felt God calling him to build a church with simple goals; reach those far from Christ and edify believers to a strong walk with the Lord.

With the help of people committed to seeing the gospel fulfilled, 

the church continues towards those simple goals.

Our Leadership Team

We are a small family of believers of all ages. We love to edify one another in Christ through our corporate worship together.

Sermons are solely scripture based and very applicable to our daily lives.

The music we use during our worship services consist of Biblically sound hymns and contemporary songs

that gives everyone an opportunity to connect to God.


The leadership of Grace Chapel is comprised of men and women who love, care and pray for each person our church body.

Our Doctrinal Statement

- We affirm our belief in one God; the infinite spirit, creator, and sustainer of all things who exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. One God manifested in three persons.

- We affirm that all things were created by God. The universe was created in six historical days and is continuously sustained by God; thus it reflects His glory and reveals His truth. God directly created human beings in His own image.

- We affirm that the Bible is the inspired word of God. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, though written by men, both the Old and New Testaments are God’s word to man and is therefore inerrant and authoritative in all matters. It is to be understood by all through the illumination of the Holy Spirit and interpreted in light of the historical, grammatical, and literary use of the author’s language, comparing Scripture with Scripture.

- We affirm that Adam, the first man, willfully disobeyed God and as a result of Adam’s sin death entered the world and separated man from God. Therefore all men are subject to eternal punishment due to their sin nature under condemnation of a holy God.

- We affirm that Jesus Christ offered himself as the atoning sacrifice for all of mans sins. He fulfilled the demands of God through his perfect life, death on the cross for the full substitution and payment for the sins of all, was buried, and on the third day arose physically and bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven and intercedes for all believers.

- We affirm that there is no other way to obtain salvation but by Jesus Christ, through repentance of sin and faith alone in Him as Savior. The believer is declared righteous through Christ and born again living in newness of life and assured of salvation and spending eternity in heaven.

- We affirm that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer, seals their salvation, and ever increasingly conforms them to the likeness of God. This process of sanctification is only perfected in heaven however, believers are called to live a life of obedience to the Word of God and resist sin.

- We affirm that the church is made up of all born again believers in Jesus Christ. The local church is an assembly of born again believers who have partaken in believer’s baptism, and are living under the word of God and the lordship of Jesus Christ. The church is organized to carry out the Great Commission of Christ to evangelize, teach and preach the Gospel and baptize new believers.

 - We affirm that the return of Christ is near. The next great event will be the calling up or the rapture of all born again believers in Christ. This will be followed by seven years of tribulation and then the coming of Christ to establish his millennial, earthly kingdom. The unsaved will be raised and face judgment, eternal damnation, and separation from God. The saved, having been raised, will live forever in heaven in fellowship with God.
