Disciple- Be one. Make One
Our vision is to help build disciples and rebuild lives through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
Whether you are brand new to the church thing or you’ve been around church for a while; we want to say welcome!
Our goal at Greater Discipleship Center is to create environments and experiences where you can encounter God in the midst of your life. Our aim is that you would be inspired by true worship, encouraged by the message, welcomed by our amazing community of people & be reminded that God’s grace is here!

We are a Church that loves God & people

Greater Discipleship Center located in Hampton, Virgina is a ministry of the Church of God headquartered in Cleveland, TN.

Here you will find a church that seeks to glorify God through the transformation of the individual (salvation), the believer (discipleship), the church (recapturing the biblical essence), and community (outreaching ministry).

This takes place through deepening biblical understanding through Spirit guidance and spiritual disciplines for the purpose of deepening our relationship with God. Our disciples share the love and life of Christ in their families, workplaces, and communities through purposeful ministry and example.

Our History

In 1988 Cornerstone Fellowship Church of God met in Fox Hill, Hampton, Viginia. In 2018, the congregation relocated to LaSalle Ave in Hampton, with a new vision and a new name: Greater Discipleship Center. Having entered a new season with a new vision, we desire that people know the heart of this ministry when they hear the name of the ministry.
