Grace Covenant Community Church (G3C) is a local body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are a collection of sinners saved by God’s grace, and struggling to live our lives in obedience to Him. We call ourselves disciples of Jesus Christ and we believe that our purpose as a church is to make new disciples and for all to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. The following is how we believe Scripture defines a disciple of Jesus Christ.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ who has been saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. He/She is on a life-long pursuit of holiness as defined by God’s standards revealed in His Word. The worship of God is the disciple’s passion, the glory of God his/her purpose, and Christian love the chiefest emotion. Joyful involvement in Christ’s church as the means of proclaiming the gospel for the encouragement of the saints and the salvation of all peoples will mark the true disciple of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the aim of all of life is expressed best in the Westminster Confession, which states that the chief end of man is “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” And the simple mandate of the church was given to us by our Lord as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20, and often called The Great Commission.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
G3C is a “Great Commission” church in cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention. We believe that a central purpose of the church is to help make healthy, mature disciples of Jesus. Recognizing that spiritual growth is a long and sometimes complex process the local church must be prepared to help from beginning to end. Therefore, the mission of G3C expands from planting seeds of faith in the one not yet born again, all the way to preparing and sending out mature Christians to be servants and leaders in the ministry of Christ’s church. As such, we are committed to be intentional and purposeful in order to carry out our mission.
