Our Faith and Doctrine
We believe that human beings were created in the image of God to live in a relationship with him and to display his glory and beauty throughout the world as they commune with him. Because of sin we have been separated from God and do not know him and are therefore unable to live according to our God-given design and purpose and are under his just judgment. We are brought into a relationship with him only through faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible. Therefore, the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is essential and central to the fulfillment of our mission to fill the earth with the knowledge of God.
We believe that God, through human instruments, is the author of all the Scripture, not just parts of it, and thus the entire Bible is divinely inspired (2 Ti. 3:16).
We believe that salvation, from beginning to end, is solely by the sovereign grace of God alone that he has displayed and achieved in the person and work of His Son Jesus Christ.
We believe in the complementarian view of family and hold to the Bible’s teaching on the roles of the family members.
We delight to share our common faith in the one Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with people from all walks of life and we believe that as we love each other, serve, and fellowship in the Lord Jesus Christ the body is built up and grown (Eph. 4:1-16; 1 Cor. 12:12-27).
Membership With Us
At GCC, we have a high view of the church, because it is in the context of the local church that the Word of God does its work in the People of God. So we take our involvement and commitment in each other's lives seriously: not like a social club, but like a family.
These are the rules by which Gospel Community Church operates, to which all members and leadership of the church agree to abide. The bylaws delineate the existence of the church, and give the church body and leadership definitive guidelines for day-to-day activities, as well as for extraordinary circumstances that may arise. These bylaws aim to fulfill all legal requirements for the church, but are primarily subject to the authority of Scripture.
