Community Christian Church was founded in 1982 and has been growing and reaching the world for Christ.
Greenville Community Christian Church (GCCC) is on a mission to uplift and bring deliverance to people in our community and around the world. Pastor James D. Corbett effectively communicates biblical principles by connecting them to real-life experiences and providing clear understanding.
GCCC’s journey began humbly. In March 1982, Pastor Corbett and the late Pastor Delores held services in their home with a congregation of only three families. Pastor Corbett focused on preaching and teaching the adults, while Pastor Delores took care of the children. The initial Outreach Ministry was the “Door of Faith” radio broadcast. Within eighteen months, the church grew and relocated to 1203 W. 14th Street. Members came together to form the GCCC choir and establish the Community Christian Church Bookstore.
To accommodate the remarkable growth, GCCC relocated to Highway 11 South in December 1985. Due to the increasing number of worshippers, within five years, they implemented two Sunday morning services. Finally, in April 1990, GCCC moved to its present address at 1104 N. Memorial Drive in Greenville, NC. Through continued local growth and development of various means of digital outreach, including television broadcasts, international online ministries, radio broadcasts, a monthly devotional publication, and more, GCCC continues to strive, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
