(high school and up) Sunday, June 23 11:15 am | Room 110 RSVP RSVP by the Friday before Next Steps Statement Of Faith Our Statement of Faith at GCC 1. We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the only inspired, authoritative Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21) 2. We believe that there is one God , the Creator, eternally existent in three Persons–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–each having the same essence and attributes. (2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19) 3. We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man in indivisible union. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary atonement through His shed blood, His death and bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future bodily return in power and glory. (John 1:1,14; Philippians 2:6-8; 1 Timothy 3:16; Revelation 19:11-16; I Corinthians 15:1-8) 4. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, filling them as they yield to Him with the goal of conforming them to the image of Christ. (Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 12:13; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18) 5. We believe salvation is a gift of God received through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and His sacrifice for sin. We believe that a person is justified by grace through faith apart from works and that all true believers have eternal life. Saving faith includes repentance, which is a change of mind about sin and the need for Jesus as Savior. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; I John 5:10-13; Mark 1:15) 6. We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head. (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22) 7. We believe that water baptism and *Communion are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. (Acts 8:12; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28) 8. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting glory in heaven with God and the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment in hell apart from God. (2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 22:3-5, 20:15; Daniel 12:2)​ *Communion is open to all who have trusted Christ as Savior whether members of Grace or not and is observed on the first Sunday of each month. Our Commitment G.R.A.C.E I submit myself to the care and the authority of the biblically qualified elders that God has placed over GCC.

John 15:1-17 | 2 Peter 1:3-11 | Ephesians 4:14-15 Reproduce Intentionally ​ I will see God-given potential in others and use my gifts, experiences, and resources to participate in their spiritual development. 1 Corinthians 11:1 | 1 Thessalonians 5:11-15 | 2 Timothy 2:1-7 Advance the Gospel ​ I will leverage my opportunities to live and proclaim salvation by grace through faith in Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 28:18-20 |Romans 10:13-15 | 1 Peter 3:13-17 Connect in Worship ​ I will unite with the church body, offering my whole self as an act of submission and commitment to the glory of God.

  • PERSONAL DISCIPLESHIP | GCC

    Personal Discipleship Where to Begin The process involved in achieving spiritual growth as a Christian can perhaps be accurately described through a simple phrase that is joined with the idea of Me Becoming More Like Jesus . Advancing spiritually in the direction of becoming more conformed to the image of Jesus involves an act of God’s grace that is aimed at our transformation in alignment with His purposes. However, this act of grace is also intended to function in coordination with our will and determined efforts as we engage in a life of surrender and consistent practices that are designed to further the cause of Christ in our lives. These practices are commonly referred to as spiritual disciplines . ​ ​ It may be helpful to consider spiritual disciplines in the context of athletes preparing for the Olympics. These individuals engage in consistent and determined training for many years so that they can be prepared to compete and win in their chosen events. If they fail to prepare properly, it is very likely that they will perform below the level of their hopes and expectations. As Christians, if our win involves increasing conformity to the image of Jesus, there are clearly things we must earnestly practice to achieve that goal. Common Spiritual Disciplines There are very exhaustive lists of spiritual disciplines that have been developed over time. While most of these lists have merit, they can also feel a bit overwhelming to many people as they try to imagine engaging in the breadth of these activities. So, for the purpose of challenging those within our church family to consider a more narrowly focused approach to the practice of spiritual disciplines, we have provided a prioritized list of the disciplines that are most commonly practiced.

Bible Reading Bible Study Prayer Bible Memorization Fellowship Service Fasting Solitude and Silence Spiritual Gifts Assessment One thing every Christian has in common is that we have all been given at least one spiritual gift for the purpose of serving and bringing glory to God.
