Interested in Becoming a Member? 

The New Testament teaches that there is a formal relationship between a Christian and a local church, characterized by the church’s affirmation and oversight of a Christian’s discipleship and the Christian’s submission to living out his or her discipleship in the care of the church.

Here are the steps if you are interested in becoming a member at GFC:
