What is your 'impossible'? Step Into it with God!
Is anything too hard for the Lord? | Genesis 18:14 |
The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
| Mark 10:26-27 |
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
| Matthew 17:20 |
We believe in serving others. We also believe serving happens locally as well as globally. Jenison Bible Church offers several opportunities to serve: rocking babies in the nursery, stocking food in the food pantry, helping in annual outreach events like CandyLand and the Live Nativity, working in the Word of Life program, ministering in downtown Grand Rapids or around the world, and many more. We believe everyone needs to serve others in some capacity.
Jenison Bible Church financially partners with missions organizations and missionary families in the Grand Rapids area, across the United States, and around the globe. We know we cannot physically go into all corners of the planet, but we believe we need to be actively engaged in spreading the Gospel next door and around the world.
Each month, through the generosity of JBC attenders, we support 34 missionary families and six mission organizations. These ministry partners are sharing the hope, love, and Story of Jesus all across the world.
Be praying about where you can serve. Here and, maybe even, overseas?

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you;
and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
