Who We Are

GC2 is a small, family-friendly, multi-ethnic church with a goal to grow in a way that will enable us to be even more effective in serving the community and congregation. But we don't want to endlessly grow the number of our church. Once we reach a critical mass of around 300 members then we will look to plant a new church.

Our Vision

We aspire to develop greatness in people and in programs! Even more importantly, our aim is to glorify God and be fruitful followers of Christ Jesus in our local region. We invite you to be part of what God is doing at GC2 Church.

Our Strategy

The Church As a Team. Our greatest strategy is to be a church-wide team that unleashes the gifts, talents, interests, and experiences of every person so they can discover, enjoy, and fulfill their God-given calling. Learn more here about our Six B path toward reaching your fullest potential.

Small Group Fellowships and Ministry Teams. Our groups are how we live out our team philosophy. Christ has committed to never leave or forsake us, so we’re here for each other in our small groups and ministry teams too. In our groups we learn, laugh, cry, pray, serve, and grow together. The reality is that we are never alone. Learn more here about our small groups and our ministry teams.

A Church of "Along-siders". We believe God has called us to come alongside people and organizations around us to encourage and serve. The questions we ask are: “How can we support what you are doing? How can we encourage? How can we help?” Learn more here about how we come alongside children, students, adults, missionaries, and the community.


Why does GC2 exist? Why are we tirelessly committed to loving God, loving our neighbors, and making disciples?

Our Reason: “We love because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19
