GCBC History

The Greater Calvary Bible Church was organized on September 26, 1984, as the Greater Calvary Baptist Church, under the spiritual leadership of the organizing Pastor, the Reverend Dr. Sterling Lands II. The charter members met as a body for their first worship service on September 30, 1984 in the Church Annex of the Loyalty Missionary New Testament Church of East Austin.


In Year 2005 the denominational reference term “Baptist” was replaced by “Bible”, thus denoting another phase in the growth and development of the Church family. GCBC Timeline
