Our Leaders are Establishing Churches

Our Leaders Are Establishing Churches Banner.jpeg

The daily life of GCM disciple makers is one of providing compass settings in Scripture, guiding people in their discovery process to the next way-station and then the next in becoming Christ followers.  It is exciting that establishing churches will be a natural outcome of a person’s Disciple-Making Ministry (DMM) discovery process.

As people are obedient in application of Scripture in their lives, many will move toward conversion and baptism and then begin to understand what it means to be a church.  We don’t seek to short-cut these personal discovery processes in DMM for it is wonderful when people simply discover that they are a church!  And, when this happens the DMM coach can change gears to help them observe the sacraments and operate in the gifts and offices of the church.

All of us have been given a mandate by Jesus to make disciples of all nations, teaching others to obey what He taught us.  Jesus said that the Kingdom is like a mustard seed, that eventually provides life-giving shelter for many (Matthew 13:31).  It is very different from the historical western view of  ‘Salvation’ as the end goal.  It is a joy to bring these Kingdom of God principles into our circles of influence with the all of the DNA of personal discovery, obedience and application of gifts.

We invite you to join us in praying for our GCM team of disciple makers as they serve daily as compass-bearing guides. We pray GCM’s disciple making strategy can be infused into your own life and the context of your culture.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
