Grace Baptist Church was started in the providence of God in 1973. God allowed us to purchase our current building in 1979, which was built in
1907 and was originally a Methodist church. Pastor Cereghin is the third pastor in Grace's history, starting his ministry here in 1998 after serving
as Academic Dean of Maryland Baptist Bible College of Elkton, Maryland and after having served in pastorates in Centreville, Maryland and
Mebane, North Carolina.
Grace Baptist’s heritage is ancient, going all the way back to the Apostolic Age. Baptists are not Reformed and did not start in the Reformation
(we are not Protestant as Baptists predate the Protestant Reformation). We claim, as part of our spiritual heritage, the grand old groups such as
the Donatists, the Albigensians, the Waldensians, the old Swiss and German Anabaptists, the Mennonites and Brethren, and similar remnant
Grace Baptist Church once identified with Biblical Fundamentalism, but we must reject that identification today. Independent Baptist
Fundamentalism has apostatized from its grand heritage and is largely unrecognizable from what it was even 25 years ago. Many neo-
Fundamentalists have abandoned the King James Bible, separation, and godly music and have adopted Contemporary Christianity or have
adopted the methodology of Jack Hyles and the Sword of the Lord. That grand old movement is dead. Grace Baptist is a part of a “post-
Fundamentalist” movement which Pastor Cereghin refers to as “Remnant Christianity”, signifying the numerical smallness and spiritual humility
of such churches and Christians. We make no great claims for ourselves and we have no aspirations for worldly greatness. Our only desire is to
preach Christ and Him Crucified and to remain faithful to the Scriptures in this corrupt generation. We identify ourselves as a Bible Believing,
Remnant Baptist Church, standing on the King James Bible as the preserved word of God in English.
You will find at Grace Baptist a small but precious congregation of believers. We sing the old hymns of the faith and the psalms. We preach and
teach from the King James Bible. We practice ecclesiastical and personal separation from sin and error. We support missions both here in the
United States and worldwide. We emphasize the preaching of the Word of God and prayer above all. We invite you to visit us if you are in the
