Our purpose is to know Christ and to make Him known.
To know Christ:
We want every member to fully come to know through experience who Christ is and how He effects every area of our lives to bring us to full maturity.
To make Him known:
We want to see each person pass this relationship on to all whom God gives opportunity.
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. It was uniquely, verbally, and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and was written without error in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in faith and life of every age.
Woodstock Community Church is affiliated with The Great Commission Association. The Great Commission Association (GCA) is an association of evangelical Christian churches in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Beginning in 1970, the movement originated with a group of Christians at Southern Colorado University who set out to preach the Gospel and so fulfill the Great Commission:
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:19,20)
From Colorado, they reached out to other campuses across the country, so that there were 15 loosely affiliated student fellowships by 1973.
The goal of those few men, and of the men and women who eventually chose to minister with them, was ìto reach the worldî with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their generation and in doing so, glorify Him. The founders had been involved with the Plymouth Brethren assemblies and Campus Crusade for Christ. The Navigators and Operation Mobilization also influenced the ministry in its early years.
As the name of our association suggests, it is and has been our constant goal and desire to help fulfill the Great Commission. Consequently, the churches in the Association have always been characterized by a strong commitment to evangelism.
In the 1970’s, the Association was a loose fellowship of campus churches. In the 1980’s, Great Commission International (GCI) was started as a formal organization providing direction for church planting and accountability to the churches. Also during churches were started in U.S. communities as well as overseas. In 1986 Woodstock Community Church was “planted” by a group of young men and women who were a part of the Campus Church at Clemson University. The church originally met in Roswell in various locations until 1989 when we purchased our facility from First Baptist Woodstock. We resided in that location for 20 years when in 2009 we were approached by the City of Woodstock about purchasing the facility from us. An agreement was reached and we sold the Main St location and moved up the road to 237 Rope Mill Rd still in Downtown Woodstock.
We moved into our new building in December of 2010 and have seen the Lord bless us with increased attendance, and continued spiritual growth of our church family.
