About Grace Life Church of Pryor

Grace Life Church of Pryor is an assembly of believers in Jesus Christ that have an intense desire to live their lives wholly for the glory of God. Within this family of faith, there are a multiplicity of gifts and callings that are functioning to the glory of God and to the well-being of the Church. Grace Life Church of Pryor holds fast to historic Baptist doctrine. Pastor Melton has been led of God to re-dig the "old-wells" and to study the ministries of the Puritans, such as Jonathan Edwards, John Owens, William Gurnall, Joseph Aillene, and Richard Baxter. Also, Charles Spurgeon, Adoniram Judson, A.W. Tozer and Ravenhill have deeply impacted Pastor Melton's life.

The services at Grace Life Church of Pryor are powerful and life changing. The worship is Christ exalting, using both hymnody and choruses that glorify our Sovereign God. The messages that come from the pulpit are powerful and life changing. Each sermon challenges the believer to commit to Christ Jesus, bear their own cross, and live for God’s glory alone.

We at Grace Life Church of Pryor believe that Missions is an imperative command for the Lord's true church. Grace Life Church is deeply involved with world missions, not only monetarily by giving finances, but practically by sending believers into the field of harvest. We are in partnership with Asian Tribal Ministries based out of Chiang Mai, Thailand. This partnership produces opportunities for teams to be sent into the war-zone areas of Burma for outreach with the Karen tribe. Grace Life Church sends teams to this remote region as the Lord opens up the doors.

We also believe that we are to take care of our orphans and widows. Since 1993 the State of Oklahoma has worked hand-in-hand with us, bringing us 400-500 teenagers per year from across our State to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Thunderbird Youth Academy located in Pryor, Oklahoma has been in relationship with us, entrusting us to provide services for their cadets. This is a unique opportunity to reach this generation of at-risk youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to make disciples of them; as these are the orphans of our society. We are blessed beyond measure to serve them, and to love them.

Our great desire is to see the body of Christ mobilized and functioning as a body and not individuals after their own desires. In this desire, we strive for each member of the body of Christ to excel in the gifts in which they have been entrusted. The membership of Grace Life Church of Pryor are actively engaged in the body of Christ and not just filling a pew. The membership is submitted to the vision of the local church and under authority of the leadership of the church, with zeal and passion. We are passionately going forward, growing together, and glorifying God as we advance. We invite you to join us in this pursuit!
