Come discover more of what we're all about as you pursue covenant membership.
January 6th started the 30-day comment period on the proposal changes to the GBC Church Covenant. Please review both the current and proposed covenants below. The Elder Team is eager to hear input from you—especially Covenant Members—on the proposed changes.
We value covenant membership. In accordance with our Constitution, we ask all those who desire to commit themselves to GBC to sign a covenant that lays out what a person is saying when they join with us. It's a covenant that is limited to the clear commands of Scripture, acknowledges Christ's lordship over all aspects of life, welcomes "babes in Christ" while encouraging growth, and shows that church life is guided by Scripture alone, not outside patterns or cultural norms.
If you desire to pursue covenant membership, then the next step is to attend the DISCOVER GBC Membership Class (A Saturday morning class). Upon completion of the class, you'll be asked to schedule a meeting with one of our elders. It will be at this meeting when you can share how you came to saving faith in Christ, and be able to ask any remaining questions you might have. At the conclusion of this meeting, you will be able to sign the GBC Covenant with the present elder.
If you're interested in attending the next DISCOVER class, it is important for you to download the e-booklet below or pick up a free printed copy of the booklet, available at the Welcome Center, as our time will be spent reviewing, dialoguing, and engaging with the material.
