about the gpc family
As a Family of churches we exist for the single aim of encouraging the individual to find the good work which is within their heart, put there by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and is the reason for their actual creation as Ephesians 2:10 tells us.
We believe that the job of the church is therefore to help someone grow up in Christ. Yet we don’t mean learning to pray or read your bible more. what we mean by grow up is this (click image to open as PDF)
We are therefore not a leader led church, but one which relies on inspiration of the Holy spirit. Our GPC structure provides a framework in which this inspiration can be nurtured, developed and encouraged.
The links on this page will tell you about our history, our fundamental belief’s and how our structure stands.
As a family of churches we believe that the only non negotiable area’s of fellowship are two things:-
1, If anyone preaches a different gospel, to salvation by the grace of God, accessed through believing and confessing that Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life (and thus the director of it) and believing that God raised Him from the dead, and thus you to will be
raised to be with Him. Galatians 1:8-9
2, If we are not prepared to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind. 1 Corinthians 16:22
On all other points we may agree to disagree but you are welcome to fellowship with us. However it may be helpful to now some key words which we believe and practice.
Grace Pentecostal church family believe in:-
Full emersion adult baptism, pre-millennialism, a Gospel first approach, the Bible is entirely the inspired word of God, The gifts of the Holy spirit is in operation for today, no one is beyond the salvation of God and no one is destined to go to hell (although the Lord knows who will and won't) there is no separate priesthood, the church is democratic but the kingdom of Heaven is an absolute monarchy and Christ alone is it’s King.
If you have any questions with regards to these key words, or anything else you read, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
