Our name is our mission! We help churches carry out Christ’s Great Commission to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19–20 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) Our Mission 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." Our Vision Consistent with the missionary vision of its parent churches, GCP serves the church with solidly biblical, Reformed publications. We assist God's people with the exciting ministry of making disciples in response to the Great Commission. Our Perspective GCP's place among Christian educational publishers is that 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. Our Distinctives Great Commission Publications has five theological and biblical distinctives that define who we are and what we believe: OUR SOVEREIGN GODOur focus is on God as our Sovereign Creator, Redeemer, and King. He is the author of the Bible and its main subject and character. Our purpose is to glorify and enjoy Him forever. SHOW ME JESUSAll of Scripture is the unfolding story of salvation and Jesus is its focus. We show how Jesus, revealed throughout the Bible, came to seek and save the lost. GOD’S GRACE IN THE COVENANTFrom Genesis to Revelation, God’s covenant is the thread that ties the Bible together. We build on that truth to teach students of all ages the consistent faithfulness of God. HISTORICAL-REDEMPTIVE APPROACHThis Reformed approach to the Bible is essential to understanding God’s Word as the unified counsel of God. Therefore, we interpret each portion of God’s Word in context of the whole. CHURCH-FAMILY CONNECTIONChurch and home: working together to point covenant children to Christ. We believe parents are key in the spiritual training of their children. We provide resources for families to reinforce the solid teaching children receive at church. Who We Are GCP is a ministry of the Committee on Christian Education of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the Committee on Discipleship Ministries of the Presbyterian Church in America. The nonprofit corporation is jointly run by a representative Board of Trustees consisting of ministers and elders from both churches.
