Following Jesus means that we have to take a step towards Him. That step will mean something different from our usual routine. That next step will bring change into our lives, but in order to change, we must take a step.
At GCC we talk a lot about your spiritual journey traveling down a series of paths…
- Believing that Jesus is your savior and lord.
- Belonging to Jesus and to his family, the church.
- Becoming more like Jesus everyday.
Everyone has a next step to take along the path to following Jesus. Let us help you get started in taking a next step.
The Bible is God’s word and it tells us the truth of who He is. If you want to find out more about God then reading the Bible is your next step. Just reading it 10 minutes a day can change your life. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed…” You can’t have a close relationship with someone you have never talked to, and the Bible is the primary way God speaks to us. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.
YouVersion Bible App
The Bible App is a great way to have the Bible on your mobile devices and interact with various social networks as you read various passages.
The creator of the universe, has a plan for you and your life. The thing is, through our sin, we have messed things up…a lot! However God loves you and God knows that we need help. That’s why he sent Jesus on a rescue mission for us.
Knowing God isn’t about being perfect, we can’t do that anyway…but Jesus can. Jesus brings meaning and purpose to all of the struggles you are facing.
You don’t have to be good enough, clean up your act, or follow some spiritual checklist. Jesus is always waiting and ready for you to follow him.
If you are ready to follow Jesus with your whole life, please contact us and we can help you along the way!
Baptism is going public with your faith. Jesus did it, he commanded us to do it, and it shows the world that we follow Jesus. Let us know if you are interested in being baptized.
Belonging to GCC
Are you interested in finding out more about GCC, who we are, what we are about, or what we believe? We want people to find their home at GCC, but we also want them to be on mission with us and not just warm a seat on Sunday morning. If you are interested in belonging to GCC then our First Steps Class is the right next step. The next scheduled First Steps classes are January 5th and 12th.
Relationships are so important in order to continue to grow closer to Jesus. We all need other people who we can serve with, pray with, and learn with and, hang out with. That’s why we stress groups so much here at GCC. Groups provide the environment where those vital relationships can happen. Maybe it’s a recovery group, or a men’s group, or a women’s group or a group of parents with young kids, we want to connect you with people who can help you find Jesus.
We all have the opportunity to make a difference in this world. God has given us gifts and talents and various personalities in order to do a lot of good in this world, especially when we work together. We have so many opportunities here at GCC to serve, some are on a Sunday morning and others are throughout the week in the community. Let us help find a place to serve!
