GBC exists to glorify God by making disciples who invite the community to come grow with us in and through the gospel.
At GBC, we want to live out the gospel in our lives and share the gospel with the lost. So, when we say “vision,” we aren’t talking about God saying something special to our church that he doesn’t say to other churches. Rather, we see our mission at this church to live out the Great Commandment and Great Commission. This is just our unique take on the universal commands of God.
What do we mean when we say “come grow with us?” There are three main facets of this concept…growing in height, depth, and width.
First, we focus on growing in height. Growing in height is simply connecting with God, which we do through things like our Sunday morning worship service.
Second, we focus growing in depth. This is connecting with other believers, which we do through things like our Bible studies.
Third, we focus growing in width. This is connecting with the lost community around us, which we do through things like Impact Week and our backpack ministry.
If you look at our logo, you will see it is a tree with a large trunk (growing in height), roots (growing in depth), and branches (growing in width). It is our prayer that every time you look at our logo and think about GBC, the idea of “come grow with us” with be at the forefront of your mind!
We believe that Greenwood Baptist has been placed in this specific community to make an impact. Come grow with us!
