GCC EZRA Project – Beyond The River

On the basis of Matthew 28:18-20, GCC’s vision is to make gospel-centered, dedicated followers of Jesus Christ in our church, our local communities, and around the world. GCC pursues our vision through 3 core pillars (1) church planting, (2) bible-based education to the next generation and (3) missions.

What is the EZRA Project?

In the book of Ezra, God restores the Temple (physical space) and Worship (spiritual state) of the next generation of Israelites who return to Jerusalem from exile.  As GCC is entering into its next phase of growth, a new church building with expanded space is necessary to enable planting more churches, expanding biblical education for the next generation and evangelizing the unreached via local and global missions. A newly expanded space will also allow Grace Treehouse  to enroll more students while fostering training and development of the next generation of disciples of Jesus Christ. Hence, the name of the project comes from the book of Ezra.

And you, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God that is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges who may judge all the people in the province Beyond the River, all such as know the laws of your God. And those who do not know them, you shall teach. (Ezra 7:25)
