About Us

Who We Are

GBC was formed in 1956 and since then, has grown to be a contemporary and vibrant church with a vision to impact lives and transform our communities for God’s glory.

We are one church on two sites i.e., GBC@IMPACT and GBC@14, along Jalan Larut and we serve multiple congregations in English, Mandarin, Hokkien, Bahasa Malaysia and Myanmarese. Today, our ministries cater to a wide age range, from toddlers to seniors. The ministries and church-life are also holistic; everyone can readily engage through worship, discipleship, service, outreach and a variety of other means.

Far from being just an organization, we seek to be a loving family of God where people are valued and strong relationships are built; where people are proud to belong and feel at home.

We are committed to help everyone grow deeper in God and become more like Jesus Christ. Under God’s leading, we aim to be a church without walls; putting people before processes and making a difference through partnership with other churches to impact Penang and beyond.

We believe that God has called us to make a lasting difference, one life at a time. We look forward to this exciting journey as we are guided by His word and empowered by His Spirit.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Matthew 28:19-20
