Radical Generosity

At Global Catalytic Ministries we seek to value what God values and live counter culturally, pursuing Kingdom culture above all. One of these Kingdom cultures is generosity. While the world prioritizes building personal wealth, valuing self, and prioritizing the individual, we look to Biblical truth and choose to value relationships, treating others as more important than ourselves.

Jesus Gave It All

Jesus modeled it for us, leaving the comforts and glory of Heaven to humbly take the form of a human infant; totally dependent and without even the dignity of wealth or power all for our sake. He gave it all for us, and it’s our joy to give it all for others.

We Will Go First

When we call people into the kingdom we are asking them to lay down their lives completely: for Jesus first and above all else but also living out the natural extension of that by giving unto others as well. We won’t invite people into something we don’t live out ourselves. That means at GCM we are committed to profound generosity, leading the way in love and family. We leave what is comfortable for those we love. We give of our time, our resources, our energy, and our finances for those around us in need, both physically and spiritually. 

Generosity as Love

We do it all because He first did it all for us, modeling the kind of generosity that gives itself away in selfless love. We also remember that everything we have has been given to us for the very sake of giving it away. Kingdom culture moves through generosity. When every individual seeks to serve others, everyone has what they need, physically, spiritually, and relationally. 

A Biblical Example

The book of Acts provides a beautiful representation of what this can look like in human relationships: “Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common.

And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need” (Acts 4:32-35 ESV).

Our Mission Statement

Here at GCM, whether we have your boots on the ground in a foreign missions field, are serving those in our cities and neighborhoods, or are investing financially in the great commission, we are all fulfilling the same call. Together, we live out the GCM mission statement: We will lead the way with profound generosity, unconditional love and family are our heartbeat. Generosity is the blood flow.

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!”
