About Us

 

newchurchpic

 

The First Grace Missionary Baptist Church was organized August of 1955 by the Late Pastor Nathan Shorter Sr. It all began with just eleven member and five support churches, a little bit of faith and a whole lot of prayer were the main ingredients that inspired the members of The First Grace Church family to hold on to God’s unchanging hand.

Our Vision from the very onset of this journey has been to Let our light so shine, that men can see our good works and glorify the Father which is in heaven ( Matthew 5:16 ), also compelling them to come to Jesus Christ.

In 1996 after forty-One years of ministering in the North Lawndale Community Pastor Nathan Shorter Sr. retired from his position as pastor of the First Grace M.B.C.
In April of 1996 God called Reverend Anthony Harris to become our Pastor, along with his wife Sister Dorene Harris.

Pastor Harris was an Associate Minister of our church in 1980 where he served faithfully.
Along with much prayer and a humble spirit Anthony & Dorene Harris shared Gods vision for this ministry.

Our mission statement is: “Where the Word of God builds People for Purpose, Power, and Praise”. Ephesians 4:11-12
We also believe what Proverbs 29:18a say’s “Where there is no vision, the people perish:.

At The First Grace Missionary Baptist Church Our Vision is: To help people become acquainted with Jesus Christ, recognizing Him as Savior of the world, also making available the appropriate training and support ministries for kingdom building, and commissioning leaders of this ministry to carry the Gospel from the local church into the world, helping people to grow to their fullest potential in Jesus Christ.

To God Be, The Glory, Honor and Praise!

 

Bible Study Notes

 

 

Prayer Wars
 

Ephesians 6:10-24

 

In a war of bullets, careful aim and heavy armor win battles. In a war of words, eloquent speech and sharp pens overcome the opposition. But if the fight is outside the realm of sight, sound and touch, how are victories won?

 

1.} How do you respond to the idea that there are spiritual forces in the universe that are working against God’s will?

2.} In Ephes. 6:10-12 Paul emphasizes that our struggle is not with flesh and blood.

3.} How do you sense a battle around you with more than physical forces and foes?
_________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________
 
4.} When Paul wrote Ephesians, he may have been chained to a Roman soldier (see Ephes. 6:20). This could easily have inspired his analogy of Ephes. 6:13-17. How does the “armor of God” prepare us for spiritual battle?

5.} Which piece of armor do you need most to fight your spiritual battles? Explain.
