If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our belief in meaningful membership. We have a two-step process.
'First Steps' Membership Class – All prospective members are asked to attend our 'First Steps' Membership class. The curriculum is composed of three 45-minute classes. In these classes we cover:
- Our Statement of Faith
- Salvation & Baptism
- Why Join a Church?
- Church History
- Outreach & Missions
- Life as a Church
- Service Opportunities
- Decision-Making Process at GBC
Congregational Affirmation - When you have decided to join our church, a vote is taken, and with a majority secured, candidates are admitted into membership.
