In 2003, Grace Bible Fellowship was birthed in a local hair salon owned by Reverend Kirkland A. Smith, Senior Pastor and First Lady Qwivander Smith. For one year, God’s favor rained over the weekly bible study held at the Heavenly Hair Beauty Salon in Antioch.
Remaining faithful to Christ and to the leadership at Fremont Bible Fellowship, in January 2003, Reverend Kirkland A. Smith, Senior Pastor and First Lady Qwivander Smith along with 30 charter members marched into what is now known as Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch CA.
Within one year, explosive growth in ministry and membership manifested. By January 2004, Grace Bible Fellowship celebrated the move of God that now serves over 1500 members and countless other ministries designed to meet the needs of the community.
