Through weekly services, small groups, and discipleship experiences, Glad Tidings seeks to give every individual who enters our doors an opportunity to discover Christ in a new way (Deuteronomy 4:29). We believe that no matter where we are on our personal journeys, God is constantly desiring to draw us in closer and deeper. 


Just as God has called us to know and follow Him, He is also clear in His Word about the importance of our love for one another (John 15:12). In this world, with all of its trouble, loneliness, and despair, we need the support and love of one another to make the load lighter. At Glad Tidings, we have designed several avenues in which you can meet, connect, and come to know other members of the GTAG family.


Acts 1:8 has given Christians a clear command to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and to go into all the world as God’s witnesses. That world consists of our neighbors, friends, and coworkers and extends to the uttermost ends of the earth. Glad Tidings has a passion to see the world saved by the power of Jesus Christ, and through missions both local and abroad, we seek to minister to all those who need to hear of His love.
