Welcome to Grace Bible Chapel, Fullerton, California!

Our Story

Grace Bible Chapel has been in the Fullerton Area since the 1960’s. The land that our building sits on was once orange grove that was on a small ranch. In the early 1960’s two brothers bought the land, built a building and started a Baptist church. Not long after the building was sold to another group which formed the earliest days of Grace Bible Chapel. Over the years the church grew. At one point most of the children in the community around Grace attended our programs. As the demographics of the community changed, and people moved on, we have remained here. We are as interested as ever to reach out to the community right around our building here on Lambert Dr. in Fullerton.

What Should I expect when visiting? 

Dress. Business casual & family friendly.

Music. At Grace we sing the historic hymns of the Christian faith and some contemporary music. We don’t have professional musicians. We use the talent that we do have in our local congregation to sing and worship together!

Lord’s Supper/Communion  is a quiet meditative time were unite our focus on Christ in worship. We sing, we pray, we sit silently, we read scripture. All those who have trusted Christ as their savior are welcome to join us in remembering the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. If you are unfamiliar with Christian communion, we still invite you to observe. 

Teaching. We offer both expository preaching and topical teaching each week. Church history has shown that God does not require professional training for someone to be able to shepherd and teach someone else about God. We acknowledge this. However, those that do most of the teaching at Grace have years of training and experience in teaching. 

Children. Children are welcome to remain in the main auditorium with parents. We also have Sunday school classes for children of all ages. 

Wednesday Meal & Prayer. During COVID we have been meeting on Wednesdays for prayer via zoom. We look forward to returning to our normal practice of a meal together and study time. Traditionally we provided a full meal those who attend the study. Many of us come straight from work. We pray, and then have a 30min Bible study in the scriptures. 


Acts 2:42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

Grace Bible Chapel, Fullerton is a gathering of Christians who are seeking to live out their Christian faith in keeping with the New Testament’s pattern for the church and individual Christian life. We are evangelical in a theological sense, not so much in a political sense. In keeping with the demographics of Southern California, Grace is a multi-ethnic group. We have three fellowships that meet on Sunday mornings: English, Romanian, and Korean. In our English group there are families who are Indian, Sri Lankan, Kenyan, Philippino, Latino, and caucasian. 

Grace is a non-denominational church but we do maintain ties to several hundred other evangelical churches in the U.S. We are not a confessional church in that we do not strictly align our theology with a particular confession (e.g. Westminster Confession, Thirty-Nine Articles). However, we would theologically agree to the major orthodox Christian creeds and deeply appreciate much of the wisdom in the major protestant confessions. Historically we trace our roots to the “open” side of the Plymouth Brethren movement. 

Our goal is not to build a large organization or religious structure. However, we do believe that God has called us to go into the world and preach the gospel. As a result we do desire to grow by seeing people trust Christ as savior.

Music is a large part of life in churches today. While we do read much about singing and praise in the scriptures, we are concerned that in many churches “atmosphere” (especially music) is a make-or-break it factor. This emphasis is not found in the Scriptures. Instead the gospel, theological truth, righteousness, and justice before God are of highest priority. We are seeking to maintain a balance in our approach to music. We employ both historic Christian hymnody and are open to including more contemporary music when it is theologically sound. Grace does not employ professional musicians. As with all of the ministry at Grace, we use the the gifts and talents found within our local congregation. 

Politics. Grace seeks to remain politically neutral. Jesus taught that His kingdom was not of this world (John 18:36). We do not seek to align ourselves with a particular political party. Having said, we also know that God calls Christians to live righteously and justly in whatever country they find themselves. We are instructed to pray for those in authority over us (1 Timothy 2:2); to pay taxes where they are due (Romans 13:7). We are under no delusion that money, education or a political agenda can save the world. Scripture indicates that because of human brokenness (i.e sin), society will not rise to a golden age – centuries of human history have demonstrated this (2 Peter 3:3). Even technology, blessing that it can be, ultimately magnifies the good and evil of the human heart. Christ alone is the Savior of the world.
