Whether you are just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to grow in your faith, we are glad that you have found our website.
Gospel city Church is a Reformed Baptist congregation made up of people from all walks of life that believes the truth of the Bible applies to all of life. That truth informs how we worship, how our church is led and how we should care for others as people of faith.
There are three distinct marks that form Gospel City Church
Reformed: We rejoice in God’s sovereign grace in saving sinners, embrace the five solas of the Reformation and uphold the 1689 Confession of Faith as a summary of our core beliefs.
Baptist: We believe that Baptism via immersion and the Lord’s Supper are for those with a credible profession of faith in Jesus Christ. We also believe that elder led, congregational upheld best reflects the pattern revealed in Scripture for Church governance.
Church: We are a people chosen by the father, saved by Christ’s work, and regenerated by the Spirit of God, called out of the world, gathered as a local autonomous body, committed to discipleship and evangelism to the glory of God.
The best way to get to know us is to join us for a worship service. We can't wait to meet you!
The Ordinary Means of Grace
We believe that the primary and most important part of worship is the systematic reading and expository preaching of God’s Word. This is precisely because everything is to be governed and disciplined by Holy Scripture. How would we accurately know the God we worship apart from the Scriptures? How would we know how to worship God acceptably apart from the Scriptures? How would we know what to believe or how to live apart from the Scriptures? It is through the preaching of His Word that God is pleased to grant faith (Romans 10:17) and strengthen faith (John 17:16). The preaching of God’s Word is the primary and ordinary means of evangelism (Romans 10:14, 1 Corinthians 1:21) and of making disciples (Matthew 28:20). The preaching of God’s Word is also the primary means by which God’s people become mature in the faith and more like Christ (John 17:16; Ephesians 4:11-16). The preaching of the Word in truth is nothing less than Christ Himself, by His Spirit, preaching to us (Ephesians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 5:20;Romans 10:14b). And what Christ has to say to His church in His Word and by His Spirit is far more important than anything we might have to say to Him in our prayers and praises. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit [of Christ] says to the churches” (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22). Sadly, fewer and fewer churches have ‘an ear’ for sound, Biblical teaching. The Apostle Paul exhorted his son in the faith, Timothy, that in the face of this inevitable falling away from preaching, he was to continue to preach the Word even when it is no longer popular to do so (2 Timothy 4:1-5). Therefore, we purposely devote the majority of the worship time to preaching, and by God’s grace will persevere in this commitment, despite the spirit of our age.
