In 1943, eleven families began meeting together in their homes to study the Bible. At that time, our small community was known as Loveless Park in honor of the Loveless family who established it. Naturally, the church was named for the community to which it ministered. Over time, these families began dreaming of a church being formed right there in their small community. Now, more than 67 years later, that dream lives on as hundreds of families gather each week from all around the Bessemer/McCalla area to worship and grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ. In 2010, we changed our name to Grace Life Baptist Church to best reflect the character of our Savior as he lives in us. Though we have grown considerably since 1943, it still feels like “family” around here. In our effort to meet the needs of our “family” and community, we have begun planning new facilities at our Shadow Lake property. We are uncertain of what shape these facilities may take and even the timeline in which they will be built, but we trust God supremely as he leads us in the coming years.
Whether you’re checking out church for the first time or looking for a new place to call home, Grace Life is an incredible faith family who passionately pursues the glory of God! We invite you to join us in one of our Sunday services. The atmosphere is relaxed and the messages are relevant to your daily life.

There are countless opportunities to worship, connect, serve, and go.
