Grace Missionary Baptist Church
125 Locust Lane, Frankfort KY 40601
Program Host: Pastor Lonnie Bennett
The Grace Missionary Baptist Church began as a mission work under the authority of the Bryan Station Baptist Church, 3175 Briar Hill Rd, Lexington, KY. Bryan Station is one of the oldest churches in Kentucky, and was organized on April 15, 1786. Lonnie Bennett, a member of Bryan Station and a man called by God to preach, felt led to come to Frankfort to begin the mission work. A few years earlier, at least two other attempts to start a mission work in Frankfort had been made by sister churches, but had not been successful. God does things in His own time and on His schedule.
Down through the years, God has opened many doors. The church has gone through each door, having confidence that our God never makes a mistake, and He does all things well! He has been with us every step of the way.
We are thankful to God and to the people who have made up the Grace Missionary Baptist Church from her beginning until now. Some of them have gone on to be with the Lord, but their faithfulness has not been forgotten by the Lord or by us. It is because of His faithfulness and the faithfulness of the church members that we have been able to stand for their “old paths”.
In a day when many churches are becoming modern and more liberal in their teachings, we as a church are resolved not to let down the bars, but to “earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints” (Jude, verse 3).
