About Grace Family Church

Who We Are

Grace Family Church (GFC) is a nondenominational, Bible-based church in Tampa, Florida. No matter your background, GFC is a place where you can explore Christianity at your own pace. God’s truth is shared through contemporary music and practical, plain language messages. There is no pressure to give money, and we promise you – and your children – won’t be bored. Best of all, we encourage you to leave the suit and tie at home and come as you are.

Founded in 1994 by Pastor Craig Altman and his wife Debbie, our name – Grace Family – defines who we are. We believe that Christianity goes beyond Sunday mornings and our desire is to build authentic relationships in the community and with each other.

Our worship services are designed to help each person make a personal connection with Jesus Christ. The use of contemporary music and multimedia create an atmosphere where you can connect with God and grow as believers. Our pastoral staff strives to deliver Bible-based messages that are relevant to the challenges of everyday life. From those who are just beginning to investigate Christianity to those who are in a mature relationship with Christ, Grace Family Church is a place where Christ can touch people in a personal way.
