In 1981 a group of 15 people met in an Auckland home to encourage each other, study God’s Word and become more devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
It wasn’t long before the group outgrew the home and began meeting in various venues throughout central Auckland. By the end of the year the new church numbered over 100. For another year the church continued to meet in different locations around the city until it was decided that a more permanent home was needed.
The church felt called to the Greenlane motorway interchange area and in 1983 began acquiring property along Marewa Road. It was four years before sufficient property was acquired and building could begin.
Turf was turned in early 1988 and in September that year Greenlane Christian Centre (GCC) was officially opened.
