All Things in Common Network

Welcome to the All Things in Common Network of the GCPN!

This is an invitation to participate in a virtual community of Great Commission churches who desire to partner for the common goal of reaching the world for Christ.

In terms of its challenges, the church of the 21st Century has much more in common with the 1st Century church than it does with the 20th Century church. With that in mind, we would be wise to explore the qualities of the early church that God used to insure its success in taking the Gospel to the world.

Acts 4:32 describes the collaborative mentality that characterized the early church – All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had.

Can you imagine the potential of:

  • a church network whose primary goals included the success of all its partners in winning the lost to Christ …
  • a network which shared people, resources, information, education, and ideas…
  • a network made up of churches and partners who possessed no political agenda nor a spirit of competition…

Could such a community actually exist? God said it did and he used it to birth the Kingdom within an opposing world. The spirit of selfless cooperation that enabled the spread of the Gospel in the 1st Century can be claimed by you and I today as we address the challenges of the Great Commission together. Welcome.

- Dr. Dennis R. Wiles
