Finalized Grace Bible Church Constitution 2022
A Message from Pastor Jace:
“Since 1954, Grace Bible Church has been a pillar among the Christian community in Dallas. The responsibility to maintain Grace’s strong Christian witness in our community has been critical to me since I became the Senior Pastor. I desire to honor and respect our past while charting a course into the future.
Part of this responsibility includes ensuring that our governing documents are accurate and up-to-date in order to protect the church’s future. Over the past eleven months, a group of men and women have collectively spent innumerable hours on an update to our Constitution, Bylaws, and Statement of Faith. In addition, the elders and I have solicited input from our boards, ministry leaders, and congregational members in one-on-one meetings, conversations, and sessions open to the church. I want to thank each of you involved in this process – your contributions have been invaluable.
We are now ready to present the finalized proposed update. This update clarifies our doctrinal positions and distinctives, aligns our constitution and bylaws with current Texas law, and positions us for a strong future.
Our members will vote on this proposal, and on our slate of new elders and deacons, at our annual business meeting on December 11 after both services. Member voting will take place in person by written ballots. We appreciate your prayers and look forward to what God will do in and through Grace Bible Church in the coming years!”
