Welcome to Glad Tidings Church

Our Mission

At Glad Tidings Church, we are all about Jesus and people! The purpose of our church is very simple: Glad Tidings Church exists to glorify Jesus Christ and to see His life reproduced in people, Carteret County, and the nations with the Good News of Christ. It is our desire that we continue to make a difference in these areas. Our prayers is that the life of Jesus becomes more evident in you and your family so that it impacts the people God has put in your life!




Children’s Ministries

GTC Kids’ purpose is to equip children with knowledge of the Gospel and parents with the means to disciple their children. We intentionally invest in the lives of kids through worship, videos, live skits, small groups, games, and more! We strive to provide and atmosphere where families feel welcome and safe. Those that volunteer in this ministry are truly shaping the future of our church, community, and our world!

Youth Ministries

Our youth ministries aim to provide and environment where students feel they can belong and grow in God’s purpose for their lives. This is such a vital age when students’ world views are shaped. So, it is important to equip students with the Word of God and buils up their faith in Him. Youth ministries volunteers strive to do just that!

Worship & Arts

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Through vocals, instruments, and audio engineering, this dynamic team prepares the way for our guests to encounter the presence of the living God. This ministry also includes: Worship choir, Production & Technical Teams, and Worship Vocal Team. These volunteers are an important part of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God!

Adult Ministries

With our ever-changing culture, Glad Tidings endeavors to help adults lay a firm foundation for their lives in God’s Word. We believe that the best way for adults to do just that is to create the environments where they can connect relationally with other and grow spiritaully in Him. From our Starting Point class to our Essentials class to Life Groups, our prayer is that every adult is challenged to stand firm in Him!

Care Ministries

Sometimes we find ourselves in a position where we are unable to change our circumstances and we need help with our immediate needs. Our ministry seeks to support, assist, and encourage our Glad Tidings family and others through prayer, visitations, providing meals or connecting them with ministries that will help empower them with the Holy Spirit!

Outreach Ministries

Glad Tidings believes it’s imperative to reach outside of our four walls to meet the needs of people in our community and of people all over the world. Through this ministry we have the privilege to provide shelter for homeless, provide food for the hungry, meet strangers on the beach, and tell them bout the love of Jesus and so much more!
