Welcome to Grace Avenue Bible Church! We are a Bible-believing Church that was initially founded in 1999 under the name "Third Slavic Baptist Church." Recently officially nicknamed as Grace Avenue Bible Church, we are located on 1425 Grace Avenue, Sacramento and hope to make an impact on the community around us!

Our Vision:

Abide & Love

As Disciples of Christ, we are continuously called to abide in God’s word, so that it would aid us in our worship before Him and transform us into the character of Jesus Christ; to have love among one another in our ministries and services, edifying the church, and preaching the gospel to all the nations, making them disciples.

Our Beliefs:

God the Father

God the Father is the first person of the Godhead Trinity who rules over all things and events according to His own purpose and grace. He has graciously chosen from eternity past those whom He would have as His own; He forgives and saves from sin all who come to Him through Jesus Christ; and He becomes Father to His own, the forgiven.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the second Person in the Godhead Trinity. We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin; that He was God incarnate. Jesus Christ accomplished our salvation through the shedding of His blood and sacrificial death on the cross. Our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, eternal, without origin, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity. In all the divine attributes He is equal and co-substantial with the Father and the Son. The work of the Holy Spirit is first and foremost expressed in the revelation of God’s will to mankind.


We believe that salvation is wholly of God, by grace, on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works. Every individual person has a choice to make, to either accept or reject God’s gift of salvation and eternal life.
