Our Story

In the fall of 1994, the Session of the Independent Presbyterian Church (IPC) and the Mission to North America Committee of the Central Georgia Presbytery of the PCA, decided that the east islands area of Savannah needed a PCA church. This area consists of a group of barrier islands extending from Savannah east to Tybee Island. The major residential areas are on Whitemarsh, Talahi, Oatland, Wilmington, and Tybee (the beach) islands. IPC felt that a church plant would be a strategic outreach to this community; so in the summer of 1995, their Session and the Central Georgia Presbytery called Rev. Marty Fields to serve as the church planter.  By God's grace, He has used his servants and His Word to build a community devoted to Jesus Christ.  Like the early New Testament church (Acts 2:42-47), GCI has been committed throughout its history to the Word, prayer, fellowship, and the Lord's Supper.  We trust the Lord will continue to bless GCI for His glory.

(Pastor J.C.'s installation service)


“God does not merely initiate the work and then leave it, he continues with it; he leads us on, directing and manipulating our circumstances, restraining us at one time and urging us on at another. Paul’s whole conception of the Church is that it is a place where God is working in the hearts of men and women.”  D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”  Psalm 100:5
