1. What are the prerequisites for membership at GCF?
We take membership very seriously at GCF. The pastors and elders are charged with protecting the flock of
God and the Holy Spirit adds to the body as he leads and confirms through the leadership of GCF. It is
common for people to treat the church, especially in America, as a club where we just sign up complete the
requisite forms and vioala, you're a member. This is not the case at GCF. In order to become a member you
must get to know the leaders and people in the church, and the leaders and people of the church must get to
know you. Below are some frequently asked questions:
GCF Membership Track
a. You must be a believer, one who has been born again, acknowledged Jesus Christ (only) as your Lord and
