         Southview Grace Brethren Church:

The Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible.

       Die Bibel, die ganze Bibel, und nichts als die Bibel.



No amount of missionary machinery will solve the problem. Nothing but the mighty working of the Holy Spirit in the people to whom we preach will bring the desired results. That is the issue; we absolutely must have an outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit upon the people themselves. Nothing else will do. And we must not be deceived into thinking that anything else will do. Schools and medical work will serve to get us into closer touch with the people, but they have in themselves no power to transform the heart.

But the Holy Spirit cannot work among a native people except as He goes out through our lives as missionaries. We must not only have the gift of the Spirit, which is the heritage of all believers, but we must be actually Spirit-filled. The Holy Spirit needs to take hold of our lives and control them absolutely.                                                        James Gribble, Pioneer GBC  Missionary to Africa

Let us, then, stop depending upon the “machinery” of the world for results–the entertainment and sports and shows–and let us return to seeking the power of the Spirit of God upon the people–beginning with ourselves.


The BrethFGBC logoren commitment to following Biblical truth began in 1708 near Schwarzenau, Germany, when a small group of Christians committed themselves to following Jesus and the Word of God, no matter what the cost. Since 1939, the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches has perpetuated that passion, believing that every word in the Bible comes from God and gives us direction and hope. Through the Scriptures, we learn to have a personal relationship with God, to experience Biblical community, and to work together to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ world-wide.

Today, the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches is part of a multi-national network of churches whose values are defined by that pursuit of Biblical truth, Biblical relationships, and Biblical mission. In the U.S. and Canada, the Grace Brethren movement consists of congregations in more than 250 cities, 11 national and cooperating ministries, and 23 cooperating districts. Outside of North America are nearly 3,000 Grace Brethren churches, hundreds of new church starts, and an ever-growing number of cooperative ministry initiatives.
