Some 50+ years ago Glad Tidings had it's first gathering with about 25 children, teens, and adults... a family. Gathering in a family members home GT wanted nothing more than to know God passionately and belong to a family of believers in relationship with Jesus Christ.
GT has seen the blessings throughout the years. From our humble beginnings in a family member's home, to it's downtown destination in Lufkin, it's old warehouse roots on Lufkin Ave., to a church building on Denman, and finally it's home on East Lufkin Ave. GT has spread compassion to so many people.
With the sacrifice of intercessory prayer from many members GT has seen revival through the years, the birth of a christian school, great recreational and education facilities, and salvation of the hurting and those searching for something more. We believe God isn't finished!
Today, GT continues to spread God's Passion to people from all across the city, county, and world by giving to global missions, serving with local outreach opportunities, building relationships with one another, strong intercessory prayer, raising up a generation to know and love God, and following the leading of the Holy Spirit through relevant worship and assembly. We are ready to see what God will do next.
We believe GT is a church where you belong.
