 A Word From The Pastor......

 It is a privilege to have the opportunity to serve as pastor of Grace Bible      
Fellowship Church of Nokomis, Florida.  GBFC has a rich tradition of standing
on the Word of God as its foundation and proclaiming the Gospel of God’s
Grace as a priority.  By God’s Grace, I will endeavor to lead this ministry on the
 same path.

 I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself, the governing Board,
 and the congregation to invite you to visit Grace Bible Fellowship on any
 Sunday.  We would love to meet you and enjoy a time of fellowship together
 around the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.  I’m looking forward to
 meeting you.      
                                                           Pastor Ed Bedore

 Grace Bible Fellowship Church believes that the Bible is God’s Word; that God
 is a Trinity; that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world and rose from the
 dead to be our Savior; and that salvation is only by God’s Grace alone, through
 faith alone, in Christ alone.
