G-C-E also stands for our Core Values…
God – first
Commitment to God and His Word – Our aspiration is that our disciple-making will be marked by a wholehearted devotion to God, through prayer and by studying, obeying and teaching His Word.
Grace of God – God’s grace through Jesus Christ is the basis and power, not only of our personal lives, but also of our disciple-making and church planting.
Community – in action
The Church – The local church is God’s vehicle for accomplishing the Great Commission. The church is the place for winning people to Christ, building them to maturity, raising up leaders/disciple-makers, and for preparing church planting teams to be sent out for the expansion of God’s kingdom.
Strong Families – Strong families are the foundation for strong churches. Therefore we make it a priority to equip disciples and pastors in building their marriages and families.
Love and Unity – We desire our disciple-making to be marked by a Christ-like, selfless love, loyalty, and unity with fellow believers.
Engaged – in ministry and mission
All Nations Reached with the Gospel – Our ultimate goal and mission is to reach the whole world with the gospel of Jesus Christ by making disciples of all the nations.
Every Member a Minister and a Sent One – All disciples are empowered through the Holy Spirit to be workers in the harvest and the church, not just the pastors. Therefore we seek to equip each disciple to utilize his/her spiritual gifts to serve others.
Developing Disciples and Leaders in the Context of the Church – We place a priority upon raising up pastors, disciples, disciple-makers and church planters of Christ-like character within the local church.
