Grace Bible Fellowship Church was founded as an urban ministry in Reading in 1884. It began as a mission of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ, the body which later became the Bible Fellowship Church in 1959. The congregation first met in a temporary structure on North 10th Street, where a permanent building was erected in 1887. In 1955, the church constructed its present sanctuary on Hampden Boulevard, where office and education wings were added in 1983. The property also includes a missionary guest house.
We believe the Bible to be the written and inerrant Word of God, the only source of the message of salvation, and the final authority of faith and conduct. As a congregation of the Bible Fellowship Church, our doctrinal statement is recorded in the Faith and Order of the Bible Fellowship Church.

In pursuit of this purpose, we are committed to offer worship worthy of the Lord through message and music, to proclaim biblical truth through sound preaching and teaching, to strengthen the family of God through the fellowship of believers, and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to our community and the world beyond.
In dependence on God and by means of prayer and joyful obedience, we endeavor:
