Vision and Values

The vision of GCC is to glorify God by making disciples who love God, to grow in community, and to reach out with the love of Christ (1 Cor. 10:31; Matt. 28:19-20; Luke 10:27; Hebrews 10:24-25; Matthew 22:34-40).

We deeply desire to connect people to Christ, to one another, and to the mission of God.

Practically, we help people to:

  • Seek life-change by encountering God through worship, prayer, and Bible study (Love).
  • Build relationships in community groups (Grow).
  • Reach out to our community and world by meeting spiritual and physical needs (Reach Out).

Our values are:

  • Biblical Teaching (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Psalm 1:1-4, 119).
  • Missional Community (Heb. 10:24-25; Acts 2:46-47, 4:32-35; Prov. 11:11; Jer. 29:7).
  • Selfless Service (Phil. 2:1-11; Gal. 5:13-14, 6:10).
  • Empowering Leadership (Acts 6:1-7, 13:1-3, 14:23; Titus 1:5-9; Col. 4:7-9; Ex. 18).
  • Global Engagement (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Col. 1:6).
  • Passionate Prayer (Phil. 4:6; Col. 4:2; John 14:13-14).
  • Healthy Biblical Stewardship (Luke 6:31, 10:16, 12:13-21; James 1:17)
