Our Mission Statement

Grace Independent Baptist Church exists…
… to hold forth the Word of God…
…and to make true disciples of Jesus Christ…
…who will increasingly reflect His image…
…and glorify God in word and deed.

Our History

Grace Independent Baptist Church was established by Missionary Duane Ott in 1981. He and his wife, Geraldine, established a vibrant ministry with emphasis on preaching, personal discipleship, and children’s ministries. After several moves, God led them to the church’s current location on Upper Changi Road.


Our Leadership Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we serve under the Chief Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Pastor Ngian Ping

Pastor Ngian Ping accepted the Lord Jesus Christ through the children’s ministry at GIBC when he was ten years old. He studied at Bob Jones University (South Carolina), and obtained a B.S. in Music Education, followed by a M.A. in Bible. God called him to serve in full-time ministry and he began serving as senior pastor of GIBC in 2007, where he desires to devote himself to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. He and his wife, Melanie, have three children.


God has blessed GIBC with able laymen who have a desire to lead in certain areas of the ministry. Church members are grouped under the area of ministry for which they are most suited.
