Church History

Grace Point Community Church (GPCC) was officially planted in Suwanee, Georgia in 2012 through the leadership of our founding pastor. The church began as a Korean American English Speaking Ministry of New Life Baptist Church. As the church began to minister to the community, God led and graced the church to become a multiethnic and multicultural church, but is at current, predominantly Korean American. Its focus is on reaching the unengaged and unchurched, both locally and around the world. Grace Point Ministries and it's philosophy of ministry was founded in August of 2007, which was developed out of our pastor's heart to see healthy churches formed and functioning in the love of Christ to reach the world for Christ. His desire was to see the growth of churches that focused on kingdom growth not merely local church growth. The vision was to see churches committed to seeing the Great Commission fulfilled in every people group by having disciples intimately "Following Christ" and obediently "Leading Others" to faith and maturity in Christ Jesus until there was "no place left" where Christ had not yet been preached (Romans 15:20, 23). With New Life Baptist Church's blessing, GPCC had its final worship service at the New Life campus in July of 2016 and began congregating at Discovery Village.
