GCM’s Foundational Values

1. GCM is committed to know God, His character and His ways. We affirm the vital importance of seeking God’s counsel and obeying His instructions. (Numbers 23:19,20; Deuteronomy 32:3,4; John 5:30, 10:1-4, 16:13; Isaiah 6:8; Acts 16:6-10)

2. GCM is called to fulfill the Great Commission through evangelism, and discipleship (Acts 13:2,3, Genesis 12:1-3, Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 61:15; Acts 1:8, Romans 10:9-18,15:18-21)

3. GCM recognizes the Bible to be God’s inspired and authoritative Word and relies upon the Holy Scriptures as the standard for life and ministry. Obedience to the Word of God is evidence of our commitment to Jesus’ Lordship. (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16; John 8:31,32; 2 Timothy 2:14,15)

4. GCM is visionary, doing new things in new ways where new initiatives are required to accomplish the Great Commission. (Isaiah 42:8,9; John 4:35; Matthew 10:1-10; Hebrews 11:1-3; Proverbs 29:18; Habakkuk 2:2)

5. GCM is interdenominational in its scope and constituency. (Matthew 24:14; Ephesians 4:1-16; Revelation 7:9)

6. GCM affirms the importance of the local church and seeks to promote unity with all of God’s people, without compromising the Word of God. We endeavor to work in partnership with other believers, building bridges among Christian leaders, churches and missions for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. (Philippians 1:3; 1 Thess. 1:2-10; Ephesians 3:8-10)

7. GCM is called to the praise and worship of the Lamb of God, and prayer. In all things, we desire to keep Jesus central to our lives and ministry. (Ephesians 5:19-20; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Psalm32:6,100,150; John 17:15-21, Mark 11:24; Acts 1:14; Colossians4:2,3; 1 Timothy 2:1; Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; James 4:7; Matthew 12:23-29)

8. GCM affirms the importance of living holy and righteous lives. We believe that holiness is a fruit of God’s grace, transforming the motives of the heart, and affecting our words, conduct, business dealings and relationships. (1 Samuel 15:10-28; Psalm 51:6-17,32:1-5; Matthew 5:8; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Thessalonians 4:7)

9. GCM is committed to doing, then teaching, according to Jesus’ example. We believe that godly character and the fruit of the Spirit are more important than an individual’s gift, abilities and expertise. (Ezra 7:10; Acts 1:1; Philippians 4:8-9; Colossians 3:1-17; 2 Peter 1:5-10; Micah 6:8)

10. GCM is dedicated to being relationship-oriented in our living and working together. We desire to minimize the need for structures and rules by leading lives of transparency, humility, and open communication. (1 John 1:7; Galatians 5:1)

11. GCM is called to value each individual. We believe every person, male and female, has unique gifts and callings. GCM is committed to equipping, building and releasing into Christian service all those God sends to us. (1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 27-31; Acts 13:1-3; Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 2:19-22)

12. GCM is called to champion young people. We believe in their leadership and potential to change the world and are dedicated to equip them with the tools to do so. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17; 1 Timothy 4:12; 1 Samuel 2:18,19, 17:33-37; Daniel 1:4,8,9; Jeremiah 1:5-10)

13. GCM is committed to team ministry. We recognize that functioning in teams at all levels of the organization provides an opportunity for balance of spiritual giftings and insights. (Ecclesiastes 4:9; Mark 6:7; Ephesians 5:21; Proverbs 15:22; Acts 15:22)

14. GCM is called to servant leadership. A servant leader is one who honors the calling of his/her followers and guards their rights and privileges. Just as Jesus served his disciples, we stress the importance of those with leadership responsibilities in our mission serving those whom they lead. (Luke 17:7-10, John 13:14-17; Mark 10:42-45)

15. GCM seeks to honor all functions within the Kingdom of God. No roles or ministries are more important or spiritual than others. We seek to equip and mobilize men and women of God to take roles of service and influence in every sphere of society. (Acts11:9; 1 Peter 4:11; 1 Corinthians 6:19; Zechariah 14:20-21; Romans 12:3-8, 13:1-10; Philemon 1-2; Titus 3:13; Colossians 4:14; Hebrews 13:16)

16. GCM is called to practice a life of dependence upon God and His people for financial provision, both corporately and individually. (Matthew 6:25-33; Philippians 4:6,7, 10-20; 3 John 5-8)
