Greenville Community Christian Church was founded in 1982 and has been growing and reaching the world for Christ.
Greenville Community Christian Church is a Spirit-filled Word church with the purpose of edifying saints and bringing deliverance upon every person’s life who comes in contact with our teachings. Pastor James D. Corbett delivers the Word from a practical point of view.
With God’s anointing, Pastor Corbett has a way of explaining Biblical principles with real-life experiences. His side journeys and scriptural references will give you clear understanding and revelation.
GCCC had humble beginnings. In March of 1982, with a congregation of three families, Pastor Corbett and our beloved Pastor Delores held service in their home, with Pastor Corbett preaching and teaching the adults while Pastor Delores taught the children. The “Door of Faith” radio broadcast was GCCC’s first Outreach Ministry and within eighteen months, Community Christian Church moved to its new location on 1203 W. 14th St where the church experienced continuous growth.
At the 14th Street location, the GCCC choir was formed, consisting of many members. Shortly after, a book table started Community Christian Church Bookstore. In December of 1985, GCCC moved to another location, Highway 11 South, due to phenomenal growth.
Within five years, two Sunday morning services were needed to accommodate the worshippers. In April 1990, Community Christian Church moved to its present location, 1104 N. Memorial Drive. Today we are still growing and reaching the world for Christ.
