About Our Church
Who Are You?
Grace Bible Fellowship Church is part of a fellowship of churches
known as "The Bible Fellowship Church" begun in 1858. There are about 60
Bible Fellowship Churches scattered along the east coast of America. The
Bible Fellowship Church takes seriously its mandate from the Lord and urges
all to be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ, to receive forgiveness of
sins, peace with God and eternal life.
How Did You Come to Wallingford?
Grace Bible Fellowship Church of Wallingford began with an
evangelistic effort in DeShong Park, Chester, PA in 1926. A property was
purchased on the west side of Chester where meetings were held and a church
organized soon afterward. In 1960, our present site was purchased and the
Chester properties were sold. Services were held in the Chester Y.M.C.A.
until March 1963, when the present church sanctuary was dedicated. In
1968, the adjoining property was purchased for a parsonage and additional
parking space. In 1981, new space was added to the church building with
the addition of classrooms, a gymnasium and offices.

Our worship services are for the young and old who want to participate in the worship and celebration of God through songs and choruses. You will find our worship services are planned with the honor of God and His majesty in mind. We desire to be relevant in style and content.
What Do You Have For Children?
Children are important at Grace Church. Beginning with Promise

journey each Sunday morning into the Bible and its importance for our
lives. Wednesday evenings offers a music opportunity as children
meets for ChIPS (Children Interested in Praising the Savior).

How Do Adults Fit?
Adults come in all shapes and sizes, married and single, young and
old, active and quiet, tall and small. Ministries to adults offer
something for everyone. From Sunday School to the Sunday evening adult
meeting, our meetings are geared to draw each person into to a closer walk
with Christ and a deeper love for Him. The Bible is taught in a way that
recognizes that our spiritual needs are both similar and different. Our
spiritual needs are very similar but our circumstances are quite different. God's word is for everyone.
