New Members Class

The New Member’s Class is a great opportunity for those new to our community to meet new people and learn more about our congregation. You may join GBPC by transfer of letter, by reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, or by profession of faith and baptism.

The New Member’s class is offered three times a year (Winter, Spring, Fall).  It consists of an overview of the Reformed tradition and beliefs given by the pastors.  You will also be given the two books that make up our constitution, the Book of Order and Book of Confessions.  Additionally, you will be introduced to many of the staff and ministry leaders of Great Bridge Presbyterian Church. You will be given an opportunity during the class to share your own faith story, and if you choose to join, will be asked five membership questions.

This class is designed to share with you about the Presbyterian Church, the expectations of members to Worship, Grow and Serve, and facilitate a time for you to share your faith stories with the elders of the church if you decide you want to join GBPC.

Five membership questions:

Do you confess that you have sinned and fallen short of God’s perfect intention for your life?

Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and depend upon   him alone for salvation as he is offered in the Gospel?

Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?

Do you promise to serve Christ in his Church by supporting and participating in its worship and work to the best of your ability?

Do you submit yourself to the government and discipline of the Presbyterian Church and promise to further its purity and peace?
