The primary reason we meet together is to focus on God —
Giving Him our praise for the life-changing blessings that He provides!
Learning - Greater Alton Church, at our founding core, is a 'Church Of Christ'. We believe the Bible is God’s love letter to mankind — that He loved us so much that He sacrificed His only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for our sins through His death and resurrection. For this ultimate act of love, we now live out our lives in steadfast gratitude, gratefulness, and service to God! His Word was written so that we may know God, and how He meets our needs as we deal with life’s everyday struggles. Difficulties are part of life, and we believe God’s word offers real solutions. With this conviction, we strive to create an atmosphere of perpetual learning. Every assembly, activity, and relationship is dedicated to this goal!
At Greater Alton Church you'll make real friends, and build the healing relationships that God
desires for you; helping to shape your character,
and improve your life. We believe friendships should go beyond mere 'hellos' and 'handshakes', to heart-felt love — Love that serves as a bond;
holding us together in good times… as well as bad!
While God’s word provides the answers to all of life’s difficulties, solutions often require more
than words alone. Greater Alton Church is committed
to service. Members are secure in the knowledge that help is available
to meet a variety
of needs. Our commitment also extends to those who
are not part of our fellowship. That's why we look forward to serving YOU!
We’re glad you chose to visit our website today! If you like what you

friendly people offering helpful answers to any questions you may have.

sermon again - or any past sermon -

Thanks for visiting our website today! And may God bless you!!!
I have been to a lot of churches in my life, and every denomination there is. All of the churches are good and welcoming in their own ways, but GAC is so different! The people are very warm, kind hearted, and make you feel like you belong... even on your first visit! GAC has answered my prayers and then some! I have to let everyone know how AWESOME this church really is!
I have been coming to this church for a few years now, and I am so grateful God put people in my way to lead me here. I have really found a home through GAC, but more importantly I have learned what a relationship with God truly is. No one is perfect, and we don't claim to be. I have never been surrounded by a group of people who all are desperately searching for God's truth in their lives. If you visit, look for me. I would love to meet you!
Love this place! A couple years ago I met so many people who chose to love-up on a truly broken girl when I didn't have much left. These people showed me how to have my own relationship with Christ, and I continue to do so. No church is perfect, of course, but I love that this church is intentional and on a mission to serve and live a purposeful life that is pleasing to God. There are a lot of great ministries for children and college-aged students!
I have to say, this place is changing my life... for the better! When I was a younger man, I made a lot of dumb decisions. Luckily I had the people of Greater Alton to help turn me back to God. The people here helped me to establish and maintain a solid foundation. The atmosphere is laid-back, fun, and challenging! The people are flawed but do their best to be men and women of God -- men and woman different from the norm! If you want to try something different, or maybe you're just looking for a place to get to know God again, this is the place I would try. If you're interested, give me a shout! 618-593-7831. I would be more than happy to introduce you to our campus ministry or someone you could connect with in your age range. I'm telling you, there is a PURPOSE here... A bridge to a better life.
Such an amazing place full of kind-hearted, loving, and convicted people. Never have I ever seen or been a part of a family who loves God as much as the people here do!
Greater Alton Church is a place where imperfect people come to worship a Perfect God. I'm thankful for what God is doing in my Life!
Wow! What a place! Took this churched boy and turned me into a man of God. I don't just ride on the coat tails of others like I did growing up... I've been pushed, challenged, and loved in so many ways I never thought possible. I'm so blessed to have these people in my life to help me focus on pleasing God with everything I have!!!
What a great place! If you're looking for a church where people are real, and really trying to follow Jesus, give Greater Alton Church a visit.
Great place to worship and love God. It's been awesome to see a church really evolve and grow.
Love this church and all the people who attend here!
I've been coming to this church for three years now. This is the church that made me realize that God isn't a part of MY story, but that I'm a part of HIS! I love the events they have that are open to the community. I love the willingness to help and to make people feel loved--no matter the situation. Most of all I love that we openly accept that we aren't perfect. We are human and strive to be as Christlike as possible. That said, we have our bad days. But we still keep going. Currently, I am a Sign Language Interpreting student. I Interpret every Sunday morning, and this church has been nothing but supportive of my efforts to merge the language gap between hearing and deaf communities. The goal for this church is to spread the Word of God. Period. God is Love. Show Love... Be Love!
