Glory of Christ Fellowship exists to make disciples of all nations by living lives of worship, walking together in community, and engaging in the mission of Christ that we may grow to full maturity for the glory of Christ.
As this mission is applied through worship, community, and mission, we believe that Jesus Christ will cause his church to grow to full maturity for the glory of his name. Jesus himself is the blazing center and ultimate end of the church and, therefore, our vision is of a people of God, enthralled with the glory of God, proclaiming the excellencies of God among the nations (1 Peter 2:9).
