The journey of gospel ministry within the local church can be a very difficult and lonely path. Even within larger denominations, it’s easy to remain disconnected and isolated from other pastors and local churches. This is true for both the pastors and churches.
As the days grow dark, and larger denominations within evangelicalism continue to capitulate on large theological matters—the formation of a G3 Church Network has continued to become one of our ministry goals in order to overcome some of the ministry challenges of isolation and spiritual fatigue.
The goal of the G3 Church Network is to be a ministry connection point for pastors and local churches. Our aim is to engage in joyful ministry together for the glory of God. However, our goal is not to become a denomination, nor is it our desire to encourage others to separate from all other networks in order to join the G3 Church Network. We are not mutually exclusive to other networks and denominations.

In order to become a member of the G3 Church Network, the following minimal requirements must be reached.
1689 London Baptist Confession: The pastors of the church must, at a minimum, affirm the 1689 even if the church’s statement of faith is not officially the 1689.
If you cannot affirm everything within the 1689 or if you have some qualifications, you can provide an explanation of the qualifications in your application. Our aim is to be as likeminded as possible as we unite around common doctrinal standards.
Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel: The pastors or the church must be willing to sign the SSJ&G. If for some reason the pastors are unable to sign based on a convictional manner, an explanation will be necessary.
Financial Commitment: The minimal financial commitment for a local church to become a member of the G3 Church Network is $500 / yr.
It will be through the annual gifts to the G3 Church Network that our ministry team will be funded to produce top-shelf theological resources for the local church. As a foundational goal, we will give away all 12-week study resources at no cost through our theological library. However, we will be publishing books and commentaries in longer form through G3 Press. Any church connected to our G3 Church Network will receive a discount on all commentaries and books that we publish. Your church’s commitment will not only benefit your local church, but it will likewise be an encouragement to other local churches far and wide.
Please complete the application for membership within the G3 Church Network and one of our staff members will review your application and contact you with our decision soon.
