Experience Grace

We are now open for in-person services which begin at 10am. We invite you to join us in-person or live-stream on our Facebook or Youtube channel. 


Grace is what defines us at Grace Temple Baptist Church of Lawnside. We are a vibrant, community-oriented church where the hurting and lost find love and meaningful relationships. Here, we grow in the understanding of the Bible and encourage everyone to grow towards the likeness of Jesus Christ. Our fellowship is the setting where we equip one another to proclaim the Good News as Christian disciples who serve by discipling others. We invite you to come and “Experience God’s Grace” in a place where God’s love is on full display and grace is extended to all.

We also invite you to connect with our daughter church, the Grace Temple Baptist Church of the Philippines.
