Statement of Faith:
GBC and GCA exist for the purpose of:
- Magnifying Jesus through worship and the Word.
- Moving believers in Jesus toward maturity and ministry, and
- Making Jesus known to our neighbors and the nations.
GBC and GCA is a family of believers who holds dear the following beliefs:
- God – We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- Jesus – We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
- Christ’s Return – We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
- Holy Spirit – We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
- Bible – We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
- Man – We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
- Salvation – We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Assurance – We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Eternity – We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
- Baptism – We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
- Church – We believe that the church is a local body of believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
- Prayer – We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Government – We believe in the separation of church and state but not in the separation of God and government. Christians are salt and light in society.
