Grow in Christ-Centered Community

Christ-Centered Community
at GCC

To be a Christian means at least two things:

  • To follow Jesus
  • And to become more like him over time

This life of following Jesus is called discipleship, and the Bible makes it clear that discipleship happens in the context of community with fellow believers.
His mission is to renew all things—things spiritual and physical. Scripture teaches us that living on mission is designed to happen with other believers of Jesus.

Discipleship at Gospel Community primarily takes place through smaller groups called Gospel Communities (occurring throughout the week) and Equipping Groups (Sunday morning classes). Each experience plays a specific role in the discipleship process.


Meeting throughout the week, Gospel Communities are diverse, multigenerational families of believers doing life and mission together deeply.

Gospel Communities are Christ-centered, long-term groups that meet on various nights of the week in neighborhoods around the greater Lynchburg area. Our Gospel Communities spend time together for fellowship, care, accountability, prayer, sharing stories, and studying the Bible. Gospel Communities encourage each other to live everyday for Jesus.

An equipping group is a short-term group that meets on Sunday mornings for the purpose of Biblical instruction and training for life.
We recognize that there are times in a person’s spiritual walk where he or she may want additional study and training. Equipping Groups are short-term classes that meet at church on Sunday mornings to meet those needs. There are a variety of topics available for Equipping Groups. Classes are offered at three different times during the year (Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and Summer).
