About Our Church: Good Shepherd Bible Church is a growing (300+), non-denominational congregation with a passion for the glory of God and the good news of the Gospel. The church is marked by a love for the expositional preaching of the entire Bible, sound theology, a genuine love for one another, and a deep desire to reach the lost for Christ. We love to sing and have been blessed with wonderful musicians (guitar, bass, keys, piano, drums, cello, violin) and vocalists. We currently run two Sunday morning services (9 AM & 11 AM). Our church is on the north side of Bellingham but draws people from across the greater Bellingham area.
