Mission and Values

 

LOVE GOD

Gospel-centered Living
 
We believe Jesus absorbed God’s righteous wrath against our sin and bridged the gap between the Father and us. The way to restore our hearts and our families is by turning from our self-serving lifestyles, experiencing the radical, life-changing love of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and becoming his followers.

LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR

 The Church Is a New Community

We believe that you can’t be a spectator in the body of Christ, so our communities ought to be places where people know others and are known. Through our tables groups, family ministries and missions we want to be the church in our community, because “a neighbor close by is better than a family far away” (Proverbs 27:10 NCV).

DISCIPLE INTENTIONALLY

To live before the face of God

Discipleship — following Jesus — is to live before God’s face, to dwell in His presence, to be satisfied in all that He is. We follow as creatures of grace, entering into the fellowship of the triune God in whose presence there is fullness of joy, at whose right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11).

GCT has certain values that are at the core of who we are and who we want to be.
