Who We Are
GCC exists to MAKE DISCIPLES who EXALT the Lord, ENCOURAGE His people, and ENGAGE in spreading His message to the world.
We want to exalt, encourage, and engage at a corporate level. This happens best when everyone is exalting, encouraging, and engaging at an individual level.
D-Groups (Discipleship Groups) provide a space for mature Christ followers to mentor other believers into a life of exalting, encouraging, and engaging through the leading of the Holy Spirit.
2 Timothy 2:2 – “What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
EXALT THE LORD
We want to exalt the Lord in all we do as a church.
To Exalt is to lift up. We want to lift up the Lord by worshiping Him in spirit and truth.
We do this corporately on Sunday mornings and in groups throughout the week.
Psalm 34:3 – “Proclaim the Lord’s greatness with me; let us exalt His name together.”
ENCOURAGE HIS PEOPLE
We all need encouragement. This can happen in large group settings, but is most impactful in smaller groups and one on one interaction.
Our hope is that everyone who is part of Gwinnett Community Church will be part of an E-Group and D-Group.
Encourage Groups are for the purpose of gathering together to encourage one another through God’s Word and fellowship. These groups help us become more like Christ as iron sharpens iron.
Hebrews 10:24-25 – “And let us consider one another in order to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.”
ENGAGE IN SPREADING HIS MESSAGE TO THE WORLD
We want to spread God’s love and truth to the lost, lonely, hurting, and disconnected. This begins with those closest to us and spreads all over the world through evangelism and discipleship.
Personally – This means being able to speak and live the gospel message to those around us.
Corporately – This includes uniting with others in the church to reach the world for Jesus. We do this in Engage Groups and through our support of missions around the world. Engage Groups are teams that engage local or global needs.
- Locally – Lawrenceville Co-Op, Family Promise, Medical Missions
- Globally – Mission Trips and support of national and international missionaries
Acts 1:8: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
