Doctrine matters to us firstly, because it mattered to Jesus (John 8:32, 17:17). And we all live based on what we believe. We want the truths that God has revealed to shape our thinking and our behaviour. Then God will be honoured and we will be blessed.
At GFC, the Bible is our infallible rule for faith and life. But to say that is not enough. It doesn’t tell you what we actually believe and teach from the scriptures. We embrace a Statement of Faith, shared with our sister churches in our denomination, Soveriegn Grace Churches, which articulates and celebrates our convictions about the Bible's teaching on key points of doctrine essential to the beliefs, conduct, and witness of our churches.
