Grace and Truth Church is in friendly cooperation with and contributing toward the causes of the Southern Baptist Convention. As with all SBC churches, Grace and Truth understands that its association with the SBC is entirely voluntary. We are thankful for the resurgence of biblical values in the SBC in the 1980s and are pleased to contribute to its causes, including the efforts of the International Missions Board (IMB) to take the gospel to all corners of the earth.
Our contributions ultimately pool in the SBC’s “Cooperative Program.” Churches both numerically small and great may involve themselves closely in gospel work by helping to fund seminaries, support missionaries, and publish teaching material.
Our partnership is expressed in our association to the local expressions of the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association and the Baptist Convention of New York.
9 Marks Ministries– 9Marks believes the local church is the focal point of God’s plan for displaying his glory to the nations, and that the Bible is sufficient for the life of the church.
The Gospel Coalition– A group of (mostly) pastors and churches in the Reformed heritage who delight in the truth and power of the gospel, and who want the gospel of Christ crucified and resurrected to lie at the center of all that is cherished, preached, and taught. In a time of endless fragmentation, it is easy to sound prophetic from the margins, but one of the most urgent needs of any generation is to be prophetic from the center-from what the Bible makes the center.
Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals– The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals is a broad coalition of evangelical Christians from various denominations, including Baptist, Congregational (Independent), Anglican (Episcopal), Presbyterian, Reformed, and Lutheran. The purpose of the Alliance’s existence is to call the Church, amidst a dying culture, to repent of its worldliness, to recover and confess the truth of God’s Word as did the reformers, and to see that truth embodied in doctrine, worship, and life.
Doctrine of Grace Church Planters– Doctrines of Grace Church Planters is a non-profit organization that plants doctrines of grace churches throughout the New York City area. Our mission is to spread the gospel of grace through doctrinally sound churches in this multi-ethnic and multi-cultural city. We believe if you reach New York City, you reach the world.
