The purpose of The Gospel Church is to win hearts to Jesus Christ, which is accomplished through preaching, singing, and interacting around the Gospel. The cross of Christ, so despised by the world, has a wondrous attraction to us because, at the cross, we were rescued from sin, reconciled to God, and redeemed from an empty life. The cross has a magnetic influence on all who see it with the eyes of their hearts.
"'And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.' He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die" (John 12:32-33).
All small groups at The Gospel Church are specifically focused on studying God's Word, seeing the gospel in it, and interacting around the truth together. On Wednesday evenings we interact around the message from the previous Sunday at church, asking questions, discussing, learning together. Small groups are for sharing and caring, studying, and growing together. We currently meet at Pastor Mike's house in Long Beach on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM for a time of interactive teaching, prayer, and fellowship. Contact us for more details.
The Gospel Church offers gospel-centered counseling.
1 Peter 2:24 tells us, "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed." Jesus died on the cross and rose again not only to save us from our sins but also to set us free from anything that would hold us back from living the abundant life of joy and peace that He gives. The gospel is powerful enough to address every issue of life.
Gospel counseling is not like secular counseling; we are not psychiatrists or psychologists.
As gospel counselors, we will listen to your problems, difficulties, or challenges, pray together about those situations, and then study God's Word together to see the solution God has provided us in the Gospel.
If you live in Long Beach, WA or the surrounding area and need counsel, contact us. We will be honored to serve you in this way.
