Grace Bible Church is committed to reaching out to the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have faithfully supported a number of missions organizations throughout the history of this work, though the missionary families may have changed through the years. Currently, we prayerfully and financially support the following missions ministries.

Ministry to the Homeless — Tarrant County
Union Gospel Mission in Fort Worth is a local Christian organization dedicated to providing love, hope, respect and a new beginning for the homeless, a ministry which began in 1888 (yes, you read that right). They provide food, shelter, health care, and employment counseling for people in need, but, being independent of government funding and the United Way, they also provide for people’s spiritual needs as well, knowing that a new beginning is not possible without a change of heart. Their motto is: “No creed but Christ—No law but love.”
