Gibborim Riding Club

GRC BYLAWS

ARTICLE I  – INTRODUCTION 

Gibborim Riding Club (GRC) is a Motorcycle-Based Ministry for people who enjoy riding there motorcycles, Witnessing for Christ, and Ministering to those in need. GRC is open to all Christians, from any church or denomination professing Jesus Christ as the One and Only True Lord and Savior. (See “Statement of Faith” below for further details). We also accept non Christians into Membership as long as they are respectful to our beliefs and morality code.

ARTICLE II  – MISSION STATEMENT

GRC was designed so that Christian bikers could have a “Fellowship Ministry” to help fellow believers grow in their Faith and to win lost souls for Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.  GRC Believes in Uniting the Kingdom of Christ on earth and is open to all Christian denominations. We believe in helping others; partnering with local motorcycle ministries, clubs, churches and the community, to help those in need, to show salvation to those that are lost, and to glorify God in everything we do.  Mark 16:15 – He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

ARTICLE III  – PURPOSE

The purpose of GRC is the establishment of Fellowship among a group of Believers; to Encourage each other to share their Faith through Servant Evangelism, to Minister to one another and others in need as the opportunity presents. To Mentor, Encourage, Educate and hold each other Accountable through and within GRC.

ARTICLE IV  – STATEMENT OF FAITH

4-1A.  We believe in one perfect God existing in three(3) Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  He is the creator and ruler over heaven and earth. (Genesis 1:1; 26, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19)

4-1B.  We believe the Bible is entirely true and inspired through man by the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

4-1C.  We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in every believer from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (John 14:15-18; 16:7-11, 13, Acts 1:8)

4-1D.  We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  Jesus lived a sinless human life preaching the gospel offering His life as a sacrifice for our sins.  He was crucified on the cross for the just and the unjust, rose on the third day and ascended into heaven sitting at the right hand of God and will come again to rule and reign in power and glory. (Philippians 2:6-11, Luke 1:34-38, 1 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 2:9; 8:1, Romans 5:9, Acts 2:23-24, Matthew 26:64)

4-1E.  We believe all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.  However, through the blood of Jesus Christ, all who believe and receive Him as savior shall be saved. (Romans 3:23; 6:23; 10:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:4-7)

4-1F.  We believe that the water baptism is a direct commandment from God for all believers as an identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12)

4-1G.  We believe the heart of the gospel is God’s love for humanity.  No matter what they look like, where they’ve been or what they’ve done, all people are deserving of love and respect because all people are created in the image of God.  (John 3:16, Genesis 1:27)

4-1H.  We believe our ethnic, financial standings and cultural differences should not separate us.  We should celebrate our differences through Jesus, as He came to break down the barriers that divide us.  (Ephesians 2:14-16)

Paul says in Galatians 3:8, “There is neither Jew, nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

4-1I.  We believe in and value the local church; the bride of Christ for whom He died. Christians without regular church attendance are without the necessary care and accountability that we all need. It is encouraged that you have a relationship with a church (as described Eph. 2: 11-22).  Our ministry is a means to an end – not an end in itself. We suggest to our GRC Members that their priorities must be God, Family, Church and then the GRC Ministry.

ARTICLE V  – GRC COLORS

5-1A.  GRC has Three(3) Colors to our Patch:

1)     Black: Represents sin.  2 Corinthians 5:21 -God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God

2)     White: Represents Righteousness and Purity.  John 3:16 -For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

3)     Gold: Represents His Blood. Represents the royalty of being a part of our Heavenly Father’s Family. We are Kings without crowns, as we have tossed our crowns or will toss our crowns at Christ’s feet. Being children of God entitles not to a charmed life on earth, because of our lineage we must endure many hardships. But it represents our final hope of living with God forever!

Revelation 4:10-11 – “10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
