What’s so different about Grace Baptist Church, Jonesboro, GA? This assembly of believers has been meeting together since the summer of 1975.

They were never intended to begin religious denominations, or to attach ‘favorite verses’ due to our emotional feelings. The Lord said that the primary usage of the scripture was to testify of him! Our understanding will never be opened until we seek Christ on every page!
