Gornal is a special place. Over the centuries many people have found faith in these parts and we are really excited that God still has great plans for this community, and beyond! In the fast-paced world we live in, people are crying out for real connection, real community. In Gornal, real community still exists. We believe God’s plan for our community is to be whole, healthy and fulfilled. The church is God’s number one master-plan to communicate His love to the world, His vehicle for transformation in our communities.

Jesus’ message of Faith, Hope, Love and Joy is free and available to all. We exist to make His message known and invite people into a real, life-changing faith in Jesus.
