At the GFCOG, membership is a matter of faith and participation. If you have received the life-changing message of Jesus Christ and have become a follower of Jesus, we believe you are already a member of Jesus' church (Acts 2:47). If you are a member of Jesus' church, then that makes you good enough for us! The practical application of this belief is that we have no formal church membership. At GFCOG, we simply accept people based on their testimony of a life-altering encounter with Jesus Christ.
In place of formal church membership we ask that you commit to:
- Protect the unity of the church by acting in love towards others, refusing to carry gossip, and by supporting the ministry leaders.
- To share the responsibility of the church by praying for its needs, inviting the unchurched to attend, and welcoming those who visit.
- To serve in the ministry of the church by developing a servant's heart and making yourself available to lead and assist.
- To support the mission of the church by attending the worship services faithfully and living a life that strives to be obedient to God.
