The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired and infallible revelation of God to man and the authority of faith and conduct. GSC accepts the Bible as the revealed will of God, as the all-sufficient rule of faith and standard for daily living.
The one true God has revealed Himself as the "I Am," the Creator and Redeemer of mankind. We believe God eternally exists in three persons called the Trinity which is comprised of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death, resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of God.
Man was created good and upright; however, man voluntarily transgressed and fell, and thereby, is spiritually dead and away from God.
Man's only hope is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is by faith through grace and demonstrated in repentance leading to a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe that following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new believer is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized by water in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the body and blood of Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father available to all Christians. It was sent by Jesus after His Ascension to empower the Church to preach the gospel throughout the whole earth. In scripture, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is accompanied by the Fruits of the Spirit.
The act of separation from that which is evil and dedicating oneself to God and that which is good, upright, and morally pure.
The Church is the representative of Jesus on earth and is to carry out the Great Commission.
A divinely called and scripturally ordained minister has been provided by God to lead the church in evangelization, worship, building the body, and general leadership of the church.
Is provided for today by the Scriptures and included in the atonement for our sins.
The resurrection and rapture of all Christians dead and alive to meet Christ in the air is the Blessed Hope. The Second Coming of Christ includes the rapture and a return to earth by Christ with His saints for a thousand-year reign.
There will be a final judgment at which all men will be judged.
All of God's children will reign forever in a new heaven and a new earth.
