Our Strategy

How will we help people learn to be disciples who make disciples?
Personal Modeling: All GC leaders must take part in creating and maintaining a discipleship culture by being lead disciples of Jesus.

Organizational modeling:
  • We aim to create environments that inspire people to be disciples of Jesus consistent with the Discipleship process. 4
  • We invest in identifying, developing, and empowering new leaders at all levels of leadership. 5
  • We aim to cost effectively grow the numerical size of our church community until it reaches capacity at our current location, and to prepare for future church planting opportunities beyond our current location. 6

What We Believe

About the Bible: We believe that the Bible was written by many men who were inspired by God. We believe that God chooses to reveal himself and speak his word to us through the stories and literature of the Bible, and that each document is part of a unified story that leads to Jesus.

About God: We believe in one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, who came to earth to restore a broken relationship between the Father and all of humanity.

About Humanity: We believe that all men and women were created in the image of God to live in perfect harmony with him but that we rejected a relationship with him through disobedience. Therefore, people are dead in sin and it is impossible to restore this relationship through our own efforts.

About Salvation: We believe that because of the perfect life lived by Jesus, laid down in death on a cross as payment for the sin of all people and then raised to life again, the relationship we were created to enjoy with God is possible if we choose to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Through the grace extended to us and the faith we have in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus expressed through baptism, we too are raised to eternal life. Through baptism we also receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.

About Discipleship: We believe that discipleship is a unique relationship where believers in Jesus choose to live as he did in every way by following his teaching and imitating his actions. As we follow him and yield to the will of the Holy Spirit, we begin to experience the benefits of eternal life and participate in bringing God's kingdom to earth.

About the Church: We believe that the church is a moving body believers with Jesus as the head. We come together in love to grow in our relationship with God and community with each other, and to share the good news of salvation through Jesus to the whole world.

Discipleship Process

We believe there are four stages of the discipleship process that describe well how individuals grow as they follow Jesus: 1) Curiosity, 2) Connection, 3) Commitment, and 4) Covenant. These stages mirror growth and progression in other relationships as well. When people grow, they will move with curiosity into connection, with connection into commitment, with commitment into covenant
