We believe and 'DO' the Word of God at Grace Community Baptist Church.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28:19, 20 KJV

Two of our missionaries, Steve and Jen Hagen, are working with a tribe called the Bugkalot people, in a mountainous area on an island in the Philippines.

Years ago, the Bugkalots were headhunters. They used to kill members of other tribes and take the heads home as trophies. Then missionaries took the gospel to them. Now more than a fourth of the Bugkalots are Christian.

Tragically, one of the areas of ministry was pounded by a massive typhoon. The entire village was flattened in November, 2020. This is what is used to look like ...

...and this is what it looked like after the typhoon.

After the typhoon, they gathered for worship one Sunday afternoon in the rubble of their homes. Steve said it was an incredibly sweet time of worship together. Please pray for this family and so many others as they rebuild their homes and their lives.

The native style house were literally blown away. Sturdy homes and buildings (like the training center) sustained significant damage, but our tribal friends fared the worst. Many took refuge in the training center during the storm. But they didn't have homes to go back to afterwards.

Grace Community Baptist members felt the needs of our Bugkalot brothers and sisters. God moved to make money available to build a new typhoon-proof community / worship / service center for the community.
