Join the family.

You love Jesus, you love the church, and you’ve decided that GHC is where you BELONG.

Regular attendees of Global Harvest Church who are believers and followers of Jesus Christ are encouraged to pursue Covenant Membership. Membership is our commitment to pursue Christ together through the teaching of His Word, spiritual accountability, stewardship of resources, and serving.

Membership allows us to identify publicly with the family of God (Acts 2:41-42; Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 5:11-14; 1 John 2:19). It's a way God provides us strength for daily living, through fellowship and the love of fellow Christians (Heb. 3:13; Heb.10:23-30). It gives us a place to express our personal talents and spiritual gifts in service through the church (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 14:12, 16). It gives us a safe place to sharpen each other upon the Word of God, that we may fruitful in our Christian walk (Prov. 27:17; Heb. 4:12; Acts 2:42-47; Mal. 3:16). It identifies who we are spiritually accountable to and who is spiritually accountable for us (Heb. 13:17, 1 Tim. 5:17, 1 Pet. 5:1-5, Acts 20:29-30, 1 Cor. 5:1-12). Lastly it allows us to commit to a body of believers and to meet conditions which are general, biblical obligations for all Christians, regardless of which church you belong to. These would include submitting to Scripture, pursuing holiness, stewarding resources, promoting unity, etc.

In addition, Covenant Members are eligible for all qualified leadership, volunteer, and service opportunities; have a voice in important church matters that require a congregational vote; and both contribute and have access to certain items such as special Member meetings and events, formal pastoral counseling, officiated services (ie. weddings, funerals, etc.), pre-marital classes, child dedications, and other shared resources and activities.

Thus Covenant Membership isn't just for you, but it's for the benefit of this local church and the universal body of Christ!

After completing Connect Gathering (CG), those who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior may pursue the Covenant Membership path immediately and/or join a Home Group as a Pathway Member (for up to 6 months). Covenant Membership requires completion of Connect Gathering (CG), membership application and testimony submission, as well as a membership interview with an Elder.
