who we are

What we believe

We believe in the Sufficiency of Scripture

We believe that the Bible is God’s word. More importantly, we believe that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Thus, we are constantly reforming ourselves in view of God’s word (Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32; Proverbs 30:6; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:19).

We Practice Systematic Exposition

Because we believe in the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, we practice systematic exposition in our preaching ministry. That means we preach verse-by-verse through sections of the Bible in order to faithfully proclaim ‘the whole council of God’ to his people.

We Seek Regenerate Church Membership

Our goal is not to grow as fast as we can. Our goal is to grow as healthy as we can. We are very deliberate in our membership process. Every member of GfBC is carefully examined to determine whether or not they truly understand and have experienced biblical conversion. Our goal here is not elitism. We simply wish to avoid giving false assurance to those who are not truly regenerate.

We are Committed to Baptism of Believers by Immersion

This is the essence of what it means to be a ‘Baptist’ church. While we respect Christians from other orthodox traditions, we will only receive members who have experienced ‘Believer’s Baptism’ by immersion. Moreover, we consider baptism necessary to all other privileges of membership.

We Practice Congregational Church Government with

Elders Leading the Way

There are three basic forms of church government: Episcopal church government (a single bishop at the top of a hierarchy), Presbyterian church government (a synod or presbytery governing a group or denomination), and Congregational church government (no governing body above that of the local church). GfBC, like all Southern Baptist churches, is governed congregationally.

The SBC is a convention of confessing free churches (not a denomination!) with which GfBC (like all SBC churches) voluntarily cooperates. All of our decisions are made locally. Within that context, we have a plurality of elders that give leadership within our local body. These elders are responsible for leading and feeding the flock.

We Practice Family Integration

We believe the church is a “family of families.” We do not divide families into component parts... we minister to the whole.
