Grace Baptist Church was founded in 1979 by a small group of people who desired to worship in the community they lived. God blessed Grace, and it grew to become a light in the community as it ministered to those in the Bridgeport area. Grace Baptist continues to support many missionaries all around the world. Rev. Stan Knisley was called as the church's first pastor in 1979. Pastor Knisley pastored for 21 years before retiring in 2000. Grace then called Pastor Ken Pritt as its second pastor in 2001. In 2004 Rev. Jeff Vaughan was called to be pastor and is still currently serving as our pastor.
