GCC began as a church plant of Bethesda Baptist Church (now Parkside Bible Church) in 1991 when a small group of families began meeting together for worship in the only available meeting space, a local nursing home. By 1996 the services transitioned to a local middle school and in 2001 the first worship service was held at its current location. We now find ourselves strategically positioned to proclaim the gospel in the rapidly growing communities of McCordsville, Fishers, and northeast Indianapolis.
Our Mission & Vision
In God’s infinite wisdom He has chosen the church as the avenue through which to display His glory and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Just as the very first Christians became members of a local gathering of God’s people called a church, so too those who believe in Christ today gather together in local churches. It’s only in the context of the local church that Christians can rightly obey all of God’s commands as we learn to love Him and love others. Thus, in all we do we seek to glorify God “so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 3:10).
And Jesus came and said to them, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

At GCC we glorify God by making disciples of all nations!
Every gathering of GCC (Sunday morning, in families, community groups, ministry teams, etc.) is an opportunity to make disciples and model discipleship. Disciples make disciples; so we encourage personal discipling relationships. These relationships (from one-on-one to small groups) are focused around the study of God’s Word so that everyone may be mature in Christ (Ephesians 4:13; Colossians 1:28). Recognizing that the call of the gospel has global implications, GCC is committed to gospel proclamation in our own community and around the world through personal evangelism and planting and assisting other churches to glorify God by making disciples.
