This fellowship called Grace Baptist Church belongs to God and He is the one and only author of this work. In His grace and mercy He started to stir the hearts of some men in this area and invited them to fellowship with Him in prayer, so in July 2009 these men began to pray.
God clearly gave this prayer group a heart and passion to know Him and to follow His Word. That has been the prayer from the beginning: "God, allow us to see you, to know you, to abide in you, to follow you, and to fellowship with you." As they approached God in prayer and direction in His leading, he has been faithful to lead these men along with their families to be involved with a church plant.
He has graciously grown this body in Him and has faithfully answered their prayers. Originally meeting as Sovereign Grace Baptist Church of Cape Girardeau, He has in His wisdom had us meeting in homes to now meeting in a building, God has been good in His perfect provision. We met in homes from 2009-2010, then moved to the Metro Business College from 2010-2012, then to Thomas Drive 2012-2014). Once a larger space gathering space became available in 2014, the congregation moved to this new location at 127 W. Main and began meeting under the name of "Grace Baptist Church." We, as this fellowship, clearly believe that this is a calling upon our lives to go on mission and be a part of what He is doing - bringing glory to His name. It has been a tremendous blessing to be able to witness what God has done and it brings us joyful anticipation to see what our Great God will continue to do, for His name.
"And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." -Philippians 1:6
