Our Desire is to see you Love God Passionately and Love People Compassionately.
We believe that GT is A Church Where You Belong to an authentic family of Christ followers helping one another along the journey of faith.
We are driven to be a multigenerational church family in relationship with God, to discover who we are in Christ and how to live a life devoted to Him, and to reach our families, friends, and community as servants of the transforming call of Christ.
IDENTIFY with Christ and the Church
We believe the best way to navigate this journey of faith is to first know who we are in Christ and to share that with one another. This is accomplished through learning more about who Jesus and the Church is.
Our Church is a monthly orientation class where you'll learn more about the identity of Christ and His church at GT. You'll learn about GT's humble beginnings, where we've been, and where we're going. (starting soon)
Discipleship occurs in many ways at GT. We believe that the Great Commission happens best when Christ followers are discipled. Our discipleship classes are our Life Groups and will guide the believer to becoming a Christ centered believer who can share the gospel with others. Our discipleship classes will help to identify your journey through faith, your talents, gifts, and much more.
S.O.A.P. (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) is a simple and excellent way to grow personally in relationship with God. At GT, we want more than just a "go through the motions" relationship with Jesus. This occurs by having personal devotion and prayer time with Him. Learn more about the S.O.A.P. process here.
INVITE family, friends, and community
We believe it is important that you BELONG in an environment where you can grow as a believer and have community with other believers. We invite you to become a part of one of our classes or ministries at GT and get connected with others.
Life Groups are our Discipleship, Sunday School, and Small Groups classes.

Senior Adults is a group of the finest at GT. We love our seniors and invite you to join them at lunches, sunday school, bible studies, and special events anytime.
Worship is a pivotal to our relationship with God. Worship is not just a song but a daily walk and sacrifice to Jesus to give our all. We believe every day should begin with worship and prayer. At GT we enter into a worship experience that will prepare our hearts to receive from God. Join us in worship with dynamic songs, passionate musicians and singers, and the Holy Spirit.
INVEST locally and in our world
We believe Jesus gave His all for us. He gave the ultimate sacrifice that we would have life more abundantly. At GT we desire to share this ultimate gift by investing in the local church, our community, and through missions.
Serve Teams are all about our volunteers. Our Volunteers are involved through GT from parking crew, greeters, ushers, prayer warriors, to event setup and teardown. They do much more than just work-they pray for one another and for those who would come to know Christ more.
Community Outreach is our local church support of the Angelina County community we live in. The great Pineywoods of East Texas has many who are navigating this life who are in need of help and a closer relationship with Jesus. We partner with serveral local organizations to help provide for the needs of our community.
Missions is at the heart of GT and is why we support numerous missionaries, trips, and missional outreach beyond our church walls. We believe it is the Paul and Timothy's of our world that will continue to build the Kingdom for God's glory.
