As Missionary Pastor of Grace Baptist Church
I would like to welcome you to our website!
My wife and I have been missionaries here in Tacloban for thirty-four years.
Grace Baptist Church is an Independent Baptist Church. We are not affiliated with any particular fellowship.
We have an outstanding Faith Promise giving program. This year our church has promised and is giving over $ 90,000.00 to missions here and around the world.
We are a soul-winning church. We have groups that go out every Thursday nights and on Saturdays for visitations and about seventy to ninety people are involved in that program.
We are a totally self-supporting and a self-governing local church. We are unique in that we build all of our own buildings except for Camp Victory.
We are a ministry for the entire family. We have an academy from Kindergarten through High School and also a Bible College and Seminary (Grace Baptist Bible College) training young men and women for the ministry. We have eleven foreign missionaries directly out of our work here in Tacloban. The Lord has blessed us with men and women that have completed our college course and are serving the Lord in various churches here and around the world.
We are a church that practices discipline on a consistent basis. We want to be obedient to the commands of our Lord. Our membership is made up of active members that know their responsibilities to Our Lord. Our attendance is always more than our active membership role. We want also for those that go wayward to be reconciled to the Lord.
We are a church that still uses the Authorized King James Bible as our source of truth, strength and guidance and we are preparing for the coming of our Lord.
Exodus 8:18 (KJV)
And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.
I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
