About GRC

Distinctively Reformed

The Scriptures are the sole and sufficient source of knowledge about God and His will, essential for salvation. It was God’s gracious will to reveal Himself and declare His will to His Church through the written Word. To further safeguard and spread His truth, and to firmly support the Church in the face of challenges from sinful humanity and the malice of Satan, God preserved His revelations in written form. This act underscores the critical necessity of the Holy Scriptures for the Church.

In response, the Church embraces the Word of God, articulating its truths in written statements of faith, known as confessions. These confessions serve as a clear declaration of the Church’s understanding of the Word. Grace Reformed Chapel of Panama City Beach aligns itself with two historic confessional standards that articulate our interpretation of God’s teachings: The 1647 Westminster Standards and the Synod of Dordt.

Curriculum Vitae

Membership at Grace Reformed Chapel

Elders and deacons at Grace Reformed Chapel make vows. They cannot hold an office in the church without adhering to the entire 1647 Westminster Standards without exception, (and the Synod of Dordt in opposition to both Historic Arminianism, as well as current Arminian Evangelicalism).

Potential members of the church, in contrast, resolve make membership promises. They are able to participate in the Lord’s Supper and have the privileges of membership as covenanted believers (members after induction) which include pastoral oversight, as well as voting right in the constitution of the church. They are required to have read the 1647 Westminster Standards and the Canons of the Dordt as primers to membership.

Grace Reformed Chapel Membership Vows:


Do you believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, in their original autographs, to be the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God, and vow to uphold the truth that its doctrine of salvation to be the only perfect true doctrine for faith and practice, and that you have a faithful copy of that Bible to read, study and meditate upon as a member of the church?
