BGCC exists to become LESS so that Jesus can become more in us and in our neighborhoods.
Becoming LESS is inspired by John the Baptist, the man that Jesus said was the greatest person who ever lived (Luke 7:28). John said that he wanted to become LESS so that Jesus could become more (John 3:30). Becoming LESS means that we...
Love God and bring Him praise
Encourage our faith community
Serve those in need
Share the good news of Jesus
The thing is,
no one naturally lives a life that is LESS. From
the moment we’re born we think about
ourselves and how we can be more. The irony
is that as we live our lives with LESS of us
and more of Jesus, we find what we
truly want in life.
Plain and simple, becoming LESS is about loving God and loving others. This is what Jesus said was most important all along: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
