Planted to reach the Deaf Community. Moving forward to reach everyone.
The fourth largest unreached people group in the world is the Deaf Community. The United States of America itself only has an estimated 39 Churches aimed primarily at reaching and including Deaf People, and those churches are under constant pressure to close due to lack of support. When you add in other disabilities and oppressed people groups, there is a massive need for more churches reaching the overlooked.
Gospel Community Church was planted February 2015, with the specific purpose of reaching the Deaf Community. As we have grown, our body has become a group of incredibly diverse individuals that seek to reach the deaf community as well as the rest of the world.

God is One. He is the creator and sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally co-existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Scriptures are made of both the Old and New Testaments. They are the inspired, inerrant, and trustworthy Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of human beings, and the final authority for all matters about which it speaks.
That human nature derives from two historical persons, male and female, created in God’s image. They were created perfect, but they sinned plunging themselves and all of humanity into sin, guilt, suffering, and death. Man is totally depraved and in himself unable to remedy his lost condition. Man’s depravity alienates him from God and actually makes him an “enemy” of God, and as a result, remains under the “wrath” of God.
The Death of Jesus Christ
The substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and His bodily resurrection provide the only ground for justification, forgiveness, and salvation for all who believe, and only those who trust in Him alone are born of the Holy Spirit, are true members of the Church, and will spend eternity with Christ.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are two practices only to be viewed and understood in light of our Lord’s commands – having no supernatural or saving power in either the water or the elements. Immersion in the water (baptism) is a public sign that one has identified his or her self with Jesus Christ through prior repentance and faith. The Lord’s Supper serves as a reminder and proclamation of our Lord’s death and the victory brought about as its result.
The new birth experience is a work of God, not a work of man. Eternal life is not that which is earned via man’s effort, works, or religion; it is strictly a gift of grace – God doing for man what man cannot do for himself. The salvation experience begins and ends with the sovereign work of God in the life of the sinner. We believe that once we are saved, we are kept by God’s power and are secure in Jesus Christ forever
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the agent of regeneration (the new birth) and renewal for believers in Jesus Christ, and that He comforts, guides, convicts, and enables believers to live in ways that honor Him. We believe God gives every believer spiritual gifts upon their acceptance of Christ. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit occurs at conversion and places the Believer into the Body of Christ. We believe that particular spiritual gifts are neither essential, nor prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor are an indication of deep spiritual experience. We believe God does hear and answers the prayer of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted
The church is the body of Christ, both local and universal, consisting only of those individuals who have united themselves to Jesus Christ through repentance and faith. The head of the church is Jesus Christ, and it exists to glorify God, edify His people, and to take the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world. Jesus (the Chief Shepherd) leads the Church and directs it through the vision of the pastors (undershepherds). Deacons help the pastors, assisting them in the physical ministries of the church so that the pastors are freed up to focus on prayer and the ministry of the Word. The office of deacon is reserved for only men, yet all of the members of GCC are encouraged to live a gospel-centered life and help to lead the work of the ministry.
