GCLI Resource Papers

The following GCLI papers, written by pastors in our association, address issues facing Christians who desire to follow the New Testament in today's world. Although the specific and exact views presented in these articles are not necessarily shared by every pastor in our association, the general views expressed in these articles are commonly held in Great Commission churches. These papers have been used in the Great Commission Leadership Institute to inspire, challenge, and encourage each leader to be a more devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The complete set of GCLI books, which are available for purchase, are described on the Publications page.
