“And he said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
Too often, Christians can find themselves just “attending church” and not making any progress in their walk with God. GCL is committed to the growth of every believer, and to help insure the growth God intends, we have established a discipleship process.
GCL’s Discipleship Process
CONNECT → GROW → DISCIPLE → GO

- Grow in your understanding of a relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Build friendships with others that are committed to the GCL church family.

- Pursue the basic disciplines of getting baptized by immersion, prayer, studying the Bible, sharing the gospel, serving with and in the GCL church family, and tithing.
- Commit to attend weekly large and small group gatherings.
- Commit to be a disciple of others in GCL.
DISCIPLE Make disciples through Jesus Christ and the GCL Church Family:
