About

History

Grace to Grow Ministry began in 1990 under the Evangelistic Ministry of Dr. Brad Davis. At that time, the radio ministries had grown to the point where all of Africa, most of the Middle East, and half of the United States were hearing the Grace to Grow Radio Program. Soon other ministries and organizations, who had the same fundamental beliefs and visions for evangelism, missions, discipleship, and helps ministry, joined with Grace to Grow. This opened avenues of ministry into World Missions, homes for troubled teens, missions helps ministry, Gospel printing ministry, and aviation ministry.

Although the focus and function of Grace to Grow Ministry has shifted from those early years, our commitment to the Gospel and Great Commission of Jesus has not. We are now focused on reaching North, Central, and South America through our missionary partners and efforts.

Grace to Grow has always served under the direction of the local church and has always insisted on being accountable to the leadership team of the church and its advisory board of directors. Since 1998, Grace to Grow Ministry has served under the leadership of Antioch Baptist Church in Bristol, Virginia under the leadership of the Pastors and Deacons.

Vision

Grace to Grow Ministry is not a mission board, but an association of several great ministries and people who share a common vision of advancing the work of Jesus Christ. We believe more can be done together than separately. Grace to Grow is currently focused on ministries in the North, Central, and South American nations.

Our goal is to support the missionaries on the field as much as possible. We send 100% of all financial support to the designated missionary. We also assist our missionaries in mailing prayer letters, handling support, and a host of other needs they may have as a part of our ministry.

As a ministry under Antioch Baptist Church, Bristol, VA, we are governed by the doctrines of this church.

A brief statement of faith is as follows:

1. We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God's plan and purpose in the ages. We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God.

2. We believe in the Holy Trinity as one God in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

3. We believe in the deity, virgin birth, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.

4. We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. The conditions of salvation are repentance and faith, which are like the two inseparable sides of the same coin.

5. We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

6. We believe in the visible, personal, and premillennial return of Christ.

7. We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

We stand separated from theological liberalism, worldliness, and all forms of apostasy. We do not compromise with unbelief in any form. We do not agree with the Charismatic movement of our day. (Please contact Grace to Grow Ministry if a more detailed statement of faith is needed.)
