Our Network


FiveStone Churches

Although independent,Grace Community Church is linked in partnership to a network of like-minded churches. We belong to the network of FiveStone Churches, which plants, strengthens, and renews local churches. Led by seasoned church planter and teacher-coach Gordon Zwirkoski, FiveStone Churches is built on 1 Corinthians 3:11-12 and John 10:1-18.

 

Five Stones Identified in John 10:1-18: Integrity, Authenticity, Trust, Leadership, and Service

Integrity proves Authenticity.

Authenticity leads to Trust.

Trust leads to Leadership.

Leaders Serve.

 

The Biblical Basis of FiveStone Churches

Jesus Christ is the foundation of the church (1 Corinthians 3:11); church leaders are His workers (1 Corinthians 3:9); build on the foundation with precious stones (1 Corinthians 3:12); build disciples of Christ (1 Peter 2:5).

 

The Core Values of FiveStone Churches

  • Character before gifting.
  • Edify, Protect, Encourage and Support.
  • The church rises and falls on the quality of leadership.
  • Influence by relationship, not mandate.
  • A small church can be a great church.
