Here’s a little peek into what we’re all about….

BIBLICAL CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP

Our worship service is modeled from scripture with the priority being on glorifying God. The musical aspect of worship is comprised of a wide variety of styles that are meant to edify and impute truths within the heart of the congregation. Both standard hymns and contemporary songs are played in a number of different styles (bluegrass, modern, classical hymnody), with the primary focus being on imparting biblical truths, fostering congregational singing and the edification of the saints.

COLLIDING CULTURES

The first thing you’ll notice is that we are blessed to have folks from all walks of life gathering here…Deaf, Hearing, Poor, Affluent, Black, White, and everything in between. With such a diverse congregation consisting of folks from all walks of life, we aim to fulfill Jesus’s command in Mathew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.

CASUAL ATTIRE

Casual dress is perfectly acceptable – no need to get your best suit out to join us! We simply ask that our visitors and members be respectful to others by dressing modestly and non-offensively.

MISSION MINDED

We strive to carry out the Great Commission (Matt 28:19) in our daily lives and through purposeful missional activities. We tend to focus on Oppressed and Unreached people groups that are often overlooked and under-served, such as the Deaf Community and those with various types of disabilities/different-abilities. Our heart is in reaching these image-bearers of God and it’s where we focus a good portion of our missional efforts.

OUR HEART AND MISSION:

 

GCC is a group of missionaries, a body of believers, a population of diverse individuals united by the common relationship with Jesus Christ.  We desire to glorify God through the mission of Jesus Christ and to make Him known among all peoples in accordance with Acts 1:8.  This includes reaching the lost in every people group with the good news of the Gospel, starting first here in Owensboro and spreading throughout the state of Kentucky, our nation, and globally as well.  GCC looks to the example of the church found in the book of Acts 2:42-47

  • Discipleship – “They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching…” (v. 42) – We promote spiritual growth and maturity through an understanding of Scriptures and their application to everyday life.
  • Fellowship –  … “Devoted to the fellowship…all who believed were together and had everything in common…” (v. 42, 44) – We want to make sure that loving relationships permeate every aspect of our church inside and out.
  • Worship – “They devoted themselves to breaking of bread and to prayer…praising God.” (v. 46,47) – We desire to be a worshipping community of faith, responding in praise and obedience to God’s truth. We want to glorify God in our worship of Him.
  • Ministry – “They gave to anyone as he had need.” (v. 45)We want to serve our church, local community and world, just like Christ has served us.
  • Evangelism – “And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being baptized.” We desire to share the gospel (good news) of God through Christ locally and globally. Evangelism to both the hearing and Deaf is a natural by-product of healthy church.
GCC’s Mission Statement is as follows: “GCC exists to GATHER (Hebrews 10:25), GROW (Ephesians 4:14-15), and GO (Matthew 28:18-20)
