Amazing Grace Baptist Camp seeks to assist the local church in fulfilling the Great Commission by equipping the saints to do the work of the ministry. We desire to see people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ (evangelism) and to grow in that knowledge by giving them an understanding of their responsibility to obey God’s Word (discipleship). It is our goal that our ministry would be used by God to bring honor to Him and to expand His kingdom.
