The Grace Brethren movement is an association of autonomous, Bible-focused churches across the United States and around the world. Our churches are united by the message that Jesus Christ is our Savior from sin by faith alone.
Chico Grace Brethren was established in 1949. We met first in a home, and then a recreation center on Pine Street. We erected our first building at 5th Avenue and Arbutus in 1950. After much growth in the 1990s, we moved to our current location on Panama Avenue.
In 2011, we decided to reorganize for a new season of ministry. Under the leadership of Pastor Matt Raley, many believers from around the region came together to build a church life that would be different. We wanted church to be focused on the essentials: Jesus Christ, the Bible, and community. Simple.
Today, we are amazed at what God has done. We have more than tripled in attendance. Lives are changing. Diverse people are worshiping the same Lord together. We hope you will join us! There is much more to come!
