The Good Shepherd Community Churches

A Biblical, Living, Multiplying, Growing and
Transforming Body of Indian Christians

A Dynamic Church: Committed to the Indian Nation

Good Shepherd Community Church has grown in a fast and extraordinary manner and spans across the nation of India, with local churches in nearly every state.

The Good Shepherd Community Church (GSCC) movement is a fellowship of Indian Christians reaching out to the majority oppressed in India and to those looking to God in Jesus Christ for a spiritual relationship, for spiritual freedom, for personal and social righteousness, and for full empowerment as members of the body of Christ.

GSCC does not discriminate on the basis of caste, gender, occupation or ethnicity in fulfillment of the Galatian principles of being one in Christ where there is not Greek, Jew, slave or master.

GSCC affirms God’s plan for the Church which is the first fruit of the Kingdom of God on earth. Further, GSCC affirms that the Kingdom of God impacts all of life and that local Churches are the key to a lasting community transformation.

GSCC’s distinctives include:

  • Inclusive, not exclusive: Committed to the historic Christian faith.

  • Biblical: Committed to authority / inerrancy of scripture; focused on personal / social righteousness.

  • Ecumenical in spirit. Affirms the spiritual unity of the Church while acknowledging diversity.

  • Freedom in Christ: Emphasizes liberty in the Spirit.

  • Rational plus relational: Affirms that faith, reason and Christian community are compatible.

Every GSCC fellowship is involved not only in the spiritual aspect of transforming lives and communities, but also in activities that reach out in practical Christian love to meet tangible needs. GSCC pastors and members are involved in tutoring children, literacy classes, prison ministry, feeding programs, and other such transformational activities.

Bolstered by global partnerships with friends like Dayspring International, the church growth movement within India today through GSCC is growing more quickly than ever expected.
