At Gig Harbor 4², we believe in membership. Not for the sake of having a "clique" or to lord it over people. We believe that in the early church, seen in Acts, there was a two-way commitment between the pastor and apostles and the body of Christ. They pooled their resources, met together, prayed for one another. We believe that we should have something along the same lines. As a church, we commit to praying for our members, teaching the Word of the Lord, assisting in raising their children to know Christ and so much more. We ask of members to be committed, to be honest and seek the Lord, to tithe and to minster one to another. We truly believe that all of us have a calling and that God has given us our individual callings to use in the body of Christ so that when we are united together we become a tool that the Lord can use to do great things within our families, community and throughout all of the earth.
