On July 14, 1984, a little church with a big vision was born. That first Sunday, forty-four people gathered at Mountainview United Church Chapel, in St. Catharines, ON. This was the beginning of Glenridge Bible Church. A few months later, on January 27, 1985, the church inducted Rev. David Jantzi as Senior Pastor. He has been Glenridge Bible Church’s only pastor for thirty-four years and counting.
Glenridge Bible Church held Sunday services and weekly meetings at Lady Spencer Churchill School on Glenridge Avenue, in St. Catharines, ON for six years. In 1991, the church relocated to 1 Lakeshore Road, in St. Catharines, ON. This was to be home for the next twenty-one years.
From its inception in 1984, the ministry of Glenridge Bible Church has included supporting both local and world-wide missions, Sunday School for all ages, prayer meeting, and AWANA. These programs have been largely stewarded by volunteers. We have been greatly blessed by a great God.
In 2012, the church moved again to its current location at 310 Scott Street, in ST. Catharines, ON. This building, a gift from God, was able to also accommodate Calvary Christian School. Glenridge Bible Church and Calvary Christian School entered into a long term agreement to support each other and maintain the building and property we both call home.
We have been wonderfully blessed by the Lord and are forever thankful for His faithfulness in these years.

I enjoy the welcoming congregation and the genuine worship here at GBC.
Glenridge fills my heart with love.
Glenridge Church has embraced me like family. It's a place where I have been accepted, cared for and supported. I am delighted to be part of this family.
Glenridge speaks truth through God’s living word, the Bible. This has blessed my family and I beyond measures.
The thing I love about Glenridge is that they teach right from God's Word
I love the family atmosphere here at Glenridge.
