Above all things, Arizona Grace Bible Church is committed to honoring the person and work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by means of edifying the soul and spirit of the individual believer by acquiring the "mind of Christ"; through the study of His Word.

2 Peter 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence
2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful
Hebrews 10:24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds
Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near
We are a non-denominational local church of believers in the Central/Southern Arizona area who gather weekly for fellowship in the Word of God. Additionally, each month we celebrate the work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through a communion service. We do not have a resident Pastor-Teacher of our own, rather, each Sunday we watch a video presentation of the current Bible teaching of Pastor John Farley of Lighthouse Bible Church of South Florida.
Pastor Farley was ordained by Pastor Robert R. McLaughlin of Grace Bible Church of Somerset, Massachusetts, where he faithfully served as an Assistant Pastor for many years. In addition to the Sunday lessons that Arizona Grace Bible Church presents on Sunday mornings, Pastor Farley teaches classes during the week, all of which are available as video and MP3 files for download or streaming at their web site. Lighthouse Bible Church of South Florida is a grace oriented ministry whose policy it is to "provide Bible teaching to those who desire it completely free of charge. Freely we have received and freely we shall give."
Arizona Grace Bible Church also has a heritage in Grace Bible Church of Somerset, Massachusetts that we would like to acknowledge. We began meeting in homes in the year 2000 under the Bible teaching of Pastor Robert R. McLaughlin. The group appreciates more than words can say for the support of Grace Bible Church of Somerset, Massachusetts and the dedicated teaching of Pastor McLaughlin.
There is no formal membership at Arizona Grace Bible Church in order to respect the privacy of the individual believer in Jesus Christ. Most attendees are committed to the consistent and frequent teaching of the Word of God under Pastor Farley or any of a number of Pastor-Teachers who teach from the original languages using the principles of ICE (Isagogics, Categories, and Exegesis).
