GCF VISION FOR OUTREACH AND MISSIONS

We believe the Gospel brings life, freedom, and hope.  So in a broken and dying world that is in much need of the life-giving Gospel, lovingly serving one another and the world around us with the Gospel is our highest calling.  We strive to do this in several ways:

  • We strive to cultivate a community of believers who understand their personal calling to fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the message of the Gospel with those around them and by showing the Gospel through acts of service and kindness that better the lives of others.
  • There is always some kind of local outreach we as a church are planning for or currently participating in.  Please see our Upcoming Outreaches for more details.
  • We support many local ministries making a difference in our community with the Gospel.  Please see Ministries We Support for more details.
  • We support many international missionaries and mission organizations who we are personally connected with and know they are faithfully sharing and showing the Gospel for the advancement of God’s Kingdom.  Please see Ministries We Support for more details.
  • We encourage our church congregants to go on mission trips and/or to help support others going on mission trips.  For mission trip information, please see our Upcoming Outreaches.
