Our Story

How It All Started

In January of 2020, Grace Community Chapel sent a team out to plant a church in New York City.

Who is GCCNJ?
Grace Community Chapel New Jersey (GCCNJ) is a church founded in 2005 by Pastor Jae Park with a missional focus on Biblical Education, Church Planting and Missions. GCCNJ has exponentially grown to be a spiritual home for hundreds of people where they are nurtured and developed to be co-laborers for Christ.  You will often hear us referring to GCC as “our sending church.”

A Challenging Beginning

But in March of 2020, COVID-19 happened and everything went online. But even through these difficult times, we celebrated our launch service in September of 2020 in-person and by faith, we committed to press on and remain faithful to our calling as a church.

In the midst of so much unknown, we kept our hope and trust in the Lord. And we began to see people come to salvation and we are seeing more and more people find their faith restored and growing. By God’s grace, we are reaching the uncommitted, unchurched and dechurched.

Moving Forward

Beginning with 12 people in 2020, Cornerstone Church today gathers about 75 people. We consistently gather about a third of the church for our Tuesday night prayer meetings and most people connect with one another multiple times a week by being involved in community groups, Bible studies, and discipleship classes.

We invite you to come visit us and stick around to see the Gospel lived out in community.
