Are you ready to make a decision to follow Christ?
The only way to find forgiveness from God and to begin a relationship with Him is to trust in Jesus’ sacrifice for you and repent—turn from your sins. We encourage you to take this step of faith today. To do that, simply talk to God—this is called praying—and tell Him you believe in His Son. We suggest a prayer like this:
“Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will.
In your name, amen.”
If you just prayed that prayer and accepted Jesus as your savior, we want to know about it. Take a moment to click the button below and fill out the form so we can celebrate with you!
Reading the Bible will bring you hope, encouragement, guidance, and practical advice on the every day issues you’re facing. The Bible is relevant to everyone, everywhere, at any time.
"The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God..."
2 Timothy 3:16

Groups are integral to all that we do at GMC. As our church grows larger on Sunday, we grow smaller during the week. Groups are a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God and make a difference. We encourage everyone to be involved in a Growth Group.
At GMC, we believe that life is like a family farm – best done together! So we want to encourage you to get connected by checking out a Growth Group. Growth Groups are groups of 4-6 people who meet each week in a convenient location to grow in their faith, meet new people and just have fun! Each Growth Group lasts for 7 weeks in the beginning, and continue to grow. It’s continuous growing process.
Sign-ups for Growth Group will begin soon!

Baptism is an important symbol of the new life that is created when someone becomes a follower of Jesus. It illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) (Colossians. 2:12).
It also illustrates my new life as a Christian. (2 Corinthians 5:17) (Romans 6:4)
Baptism doesn’t make you a believer – it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not “save” you, only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring – it´s the outward symbol of the commitment you make in your heart.
At GMC, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them. Some churches practice a “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a covenant between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed. This is different from the baptism talked about in the Bible which was only for those old enough to believe. The purpose is to publicly confess your personal commitment to Christ.
At the beginning of the service, our Pastor will briefly explain the meaning of baptism. You will wait in the water for your turn to be baptized. The pastor will ask you couple of questions to confirmed that you decided to follow Jesus on your own choice and your decision is genuine. The Pastor will introduce you, briefly lower you just under the water and raise you up above the water, and then you can leave the water, dry off, and watch the others. Later you will receive your baptism certificate. We encourage you to invite all your relatives and friends to attend your baptism.
Women should wear long pant or at least quarter pant (that covers knee) and an appropriate top. Men may wear shorts or pant and t-shirts. Bring a change of clothes, a towel, and a plastic bag for your wet clothes.
Yes! If each person understands fully the meaning of baptism, and each one has personally placed his/her trust in Christ for salvation, we encourage families to be baptized at the same time. It is a wonderful expression of commitment. However, it is important to remember that baptism is a personal statement of faith, not a family or group tradition. It is usually not wise to delay your baptism while waiting on others to join you. This puts an undue pressure on them, and delays your obedience.
