Our church was founded in 1977 by 44 dedicated and faithful servants of Christ from the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Asia who were moved by the prompting of the Holy Spirit to organize a Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Garland community. We are a diverse Christian community that represents over 32 countries and is part of the Seventh-day Adventist world-wide religious organization, with more than 20 million members in over 200 countries.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 20 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
Serving and nurturing the community and one another as commissioned by Christ.
To worship God and reach out to the community with the everlasting gospel of Salvation, to express love through fellowship and to nurture one another through God’s word.
Through dedication and love for children, we started the Garland Christian Adventist School (GCAS) which was established in 2008 under the leadership of Pastor Kee Bong Kim. GFCC members saw the need to provide affordable Christian education to the many children that attended each week during Worship Service. Our school places great emphasis on the spiritual, mental, social, and physical development of the students. Students are encouraged to excel in reading, mathematics, social studies, and science, as well as in services to others. Garland Christian Adventist School is committed to modeling Jesus’ life, activating His love, and increasing community involvement; teaching and heralding the Advent gospel while preparing for service today, tomorrow, and eternally. Christian education provides quality academic experience in a caring Christian environment.
