FGBC logoThe Brethren 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.


Bible           Southview Grace Brethren Church:

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

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



I am happy in the midst of my trials, for I know that God is faithful. I praise Him for every trial, for I am nearer to Him than ever before, and I know Him better. . . . Many lives have been laid down in Africa for Christ. Why not mine? Having put my hands to the plow, Oh, Lord, let me not look back. May I always remember that if I suffer with Him I shall also reign with Him. If it ever behooves me to lay down my life, may I die at the battle front and not like a coward!
