New to gtc?

Church can be an intimidating place to visit

— especially if you don’t know what to expect.  
We invite you to experience what the gospel means

at one of our Sunday worship services. 

You can engage with others as much as you want,
or remain anonymous if you prefer.
We hope that through visiting with us,
you will experience the hope, love and joy
that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.

About us

Our congregation comes from many different parts of the world and from many different walks of life, but we are all united by our passion and love for Jesus and His people.  

We believe that loving God
leads to loving and serving people, which leads to leading people
- back to loving God.  


From our services to our small groups, and from our kids’ ministries to our missions trips, our desire is to love, serve and worship God
with all that is in us

and to love our neighbors as ourselves

(from Luke 10:27).

What to Expect

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. 

You can expect friendly and authentic people, engaging and relevant music and worship, compelling preaching from the Bible, and an opportunity to encounter God. 

You will be encouraged and we hope that

you will be challenged.


Expect to hear about Jesus.

Expect honesty.

Expect exceptional love.
