In Ephesians 5:25-27 the Bible makes these amazing statements: "Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it ...that he might sanctify and cleanse it...that He might present it to Himself a glorious church..."
A glorious church is a phrase that defines how favorably God views His people. Through personal trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord we are made acceptable and righteous in God's sight. His love and power transforms us and we begin to learn and live the abundant life. The name A Glorious Church reminds us of all that God has done for us through Jesus Christ.
In May of 1986 Pastor Linda started ministering in Monticello at a weekly Bible study for women. Each week they prayed for their community and their desire for a local church.
In January of 1987 Pastors Dan and Linda started laying the foundation for A Glorious Church by ministering to families in a home Bible study. The first Sunday service was held on June 7, 1987 in the Monticello High School Auditorium. Nine years later, in 1996, A Glorious Church opened their newly-build church home in Monticello where they worshipped weekly for more than 27 years.
In 2023, A Glorious Church transitioned their building over to Grace Bible Church which had been renting time in the church for a number of years. As part of this transition, Grace Bible Church graciously offered A Glorious Church the opportunity to continue meeting in the church building for worship services.
Today, A Glorious Church meets at 9 a.m. for a Worship Service and Breakfast on the first Saturday of each month at 300 Riverview Drive, Monticello, MN 55362 in addition to gathering monthly for home fellowships.
