The Grace Center Church Story begins as Eric Simmons who served as the lead Pastor for 15 years for a great church with roots in Philadelphia since 1935 the First Baptist Church of Paschall.
Eric dreamed of creating a church experience designed for those desiring a FREE but deeper experience with God. A place for the hurting, the broken and the lost infused with a non traditional church experience.
At the same time he was assisting another prominent church in philadelphia Word Tabernacle Church who was without a leader for a few years. This was the perfect marriage of Pastor, church and community.
Pastor Eric brought the two churches together to form
The Grace Center Church a contemporary christian church built on community and family.
The church purchased a former medical office complex that sits on 4 plus acres near the airport. It houses a community wellness center which has over 40,000 sq ft of space with a day care, medical offices, mentoring and counseling programs as well as a small auditorium. And will house the FUTURE 35,000 sq ft New church and multiplex.
On March 1st 2020 the first service was held at the current location. A church built on the principles of Grace and free worship mixed with fun, laughter and Love. Where people gather on and off campus to Follow God, Belong To A Family, Connect With A Cause and Prosper To Make An Impact. Today many lives have been touched and changed by ministry of The Grace Center Church.
We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to seek God with passion and freedom.
