Grace Bible Church is led by a pastor and a plurality of elders and served by a group of deacons
Our Pastor: Michael Frederick
Mike grew up in an Army home and subsequently served as an air traffic controller in the US Air Force for 20 years from 1981 to 2001. After finishing service in the Air Force, Mike, Francisca and their four children went to Thailand as church planting missionaries where they established the New Life Baptist Church in Hang Dong, Thailand. In 2022, the church ordained a national pastor, who is now leading the church.

Grace Bible is truly a vivid testimony of God's grace and faithfulness. Following the Lord's leading, several families met for the Bible Studies and prayer meetings, held in homes. The first Sunday Services began June 2, 1974. From homes to school buildings, believers met together until the Lord provided for the establishment of the present church building. The congregation moved into the new church home on March 13, 1977. Since then, the Lord has allowed Grace Bible the privilege of ministering to families throughout the South Jersey area. The history of Grace Bible Church is continuing to be written by the current generation of members as we continue to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
