Who We Are
GCP is a ministry of the Committee on Christian Education of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the Committee for Christian Education & Publications of the Presbyterian Church in America. The non-profit corporation is jointly run by a representative Board of Trustees consisting of ministers and elders from both churches.
GCP's mission is to produce resources for the church's work of nurturing and equipping the people of God . . . and doing so with a focus on building Christ's kingdom and preparing believers to "glorify God and enjoy him forever."
GCP's place among Christian educational publishers is that we operate from a Reformed perspective and seek to reflect the distinctive doctrines of grace. We stand fast on the Scriptures as the only infallible rule of faith and practice. Our theology is based on the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. See Westminster Standards & Catechisms.
Consistent with the missionary vision of its parent churches, GCP is seeking to serve the church-at-large with solidly biblical, Reformed publications. Our goal is to assist God's people with the exciting ministry of discipling lives in response to the Great Commission.
Great Commission Publications has five theological and biblical distinctives that define who we are and what we believe:
THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD
The Reformed approach to the Bible sees it as the complete, unified Word
of God. Therefore, we examine each part in light of the
whole...ultimately to grasp the entirety of God's revelation to us.
When we encounter any biblical truth, it teaches us about God as our
sovereign Creator/Redeemer/King. And we discover man's chief end: To glorify God and enjoy him forever!
SHOW ME JESUS
The unfolding story of salvation is the focal point of Scripture, from
Genesis to Revelation. Showing Jesus, who came to seek and save the
lost, pervades everything we publish.
God's covenant of grace is a key thread that ties the Bible together. We
build on this theme to teach all ages about his constant promise to be
THE HOME LINK
The mission of growing in grace and passing our faith on to the next
generation calls for a partnering of church leaders and parents.
GCP resources are rooted deeply in the Reformed faith as taught in the
Westminster Standards. Biblically straightforward, doctrinally sound,
warmly personal...the fruit of changed lives tells the story!
...we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.
Ephesians 4:15 (ESV)
