The pastors range from being professors at UC Davis to normal everyday pastors and evangelicals. People of different races come here to worship God. There are many good people that were raised in this church that reside in Davis and also teach at Davis or even do research. Solely coming to church, is not going to help build a closer relationship to God in my opinion, but I found that during my darkest hours, when I was in need of God, he was there to help me. And when my brothers and sisters were in need of God, he was there to help them. So, what I experienced is that even though I did not live a perfect Christian life and turned my back on God multiple times after trying to change my ways, I realized his true power and grace and from that I became a true believer. Sometimes I think that people try to come up with explanations of what God wants and thinks and who is going to hell and who is sinning, but God is there and when the time comes, he will have vengeance on those that are committing sin and to be there for people who are suffering. In my opinion, I think that all sin is equal, whether you commit adultery, murder, gossip, etc., sin is sin and those who think other people are sinning, are ones that are sinning themselves. I used to think that a lot of people that go to church are Pharisees but they are humans too and all humans sin. I think what is most important though is to not let religion get into the wrong hands of evil people that will use it to control people who are not educated, create racism between people of differing social classes, and place blame on others who do not obey laws made by some evil men. I was always taught that Jesus said to always turn the other cheek and that he did not believe in killing other people because they think that their religion is better than other peoples' religions. Someone once told me that Jesus is in your heart and if you have strong enough faith, he will be there for you. I would also like to say that even though some people may disagree with me, man wrote the Bible, and man sins. Who knows, we were not there to witness their actions and who knows about what God has created in this world. I think that some things are just unexplainable and we will eventually find out when the time comes. --["Users/peacefulsparrow"]</span> </td> <td> <span>+ </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 71: </td> <td> Line 71: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- <br> - It was my favorite poem of all time and the one that I best remembered --["Users/peacefulsparrow"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Grace Valley Christian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Grace_Valley_Christian_Center2011-04-20 20:28:50peacefulsparrowdon't feel like posting it <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Grace Valley Christian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 70: </td> <td> Line 70: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2011-04-15 18:13:49'' [[nbsp]] There is a poem that I used to always recite as a child by Robert Frost and it is called "Fire and Ice"</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 72: </td> <td> Line 71: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice, from what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire, but if I had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate, to say that for destruction ice, is also great and would suffice.</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 80: </td> <td> Line 78: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ''2011-04-19 09:49:21'' [[nbsp]] Wes, I understand completely what you are talking about. A couple times when I attended this church, people would give me scornful looks and treat me like an outcast because of sins that I committed in the past. Many of the Christians here are from the town that I grew up in and they gossip and ridicule people that do not have perfect Christian lives. Of course, a small percentage of people in my town have Confederate flags waving in front of their house or treating other people of different races like criminals but that is expected in any small town that does not have much exposure to diversity. You really can't talk about your personal issues or sins to some people, because they will just look down on you even when you are trying to change or repent for your sins. It kind of drives people away from church when people from church treat them like that. One day that I went to church, the pastor was talking about depression and how it is caused by one's own sin, however, I disagree with that. The economy right now causes people to feel depressed and other factors could be the way that they are treated personally or even in environmental places like at work. I have a diagnosis similar to depression and it is mainly caused by an imbalance in my brain chemistry as well as environmental factors in my surroundings and also because I am isolated or lonely and feel like an outcast in society. A lot of times, some Christians blame other people and do not want to admit that they are sinners themselves. I went here a couple of times with my father and only a few members approached us. Some of the church members are really paranoid about being affiliated with people who they consider as 'sinful' or people who do not 'live a perfect Christian life' which I think is ridiculous because there is not really such a thing as a perfect Christian life. How can you define it? Another issue that sparks controversy is that some Christians don't believe in using birth control and don't have the resources to support their family as well as contributing to overpopulation. To me, I think the Bible is really symbolic of things such as poetry but a lot of Christian people take it really literally. Furthermore, you would think that some of the professors who come to this church, especially with a science background, could come up with other approaches to interpreting the Bible. --["Users/peacefulsparrow"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Grace Valley Christian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Grace_Valley_Christian_Center2011-04-19 10:44:29BruceHansen <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Grace Valley Christian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 79: </td> <td> Line 79: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ You're not a bulldozer?</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Grace Valley Christian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Grace_Valley_Christian_Center2011-04-19 09:49:21peacefulsparrowComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Grace Valley Christian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 79: </td> <td> Line 79: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-04-19 09:49:21'' [[nbsp]] Wes, I understand completely what you are talking about.

GVCC was one such house and, upon reading all the details surrounding this "church" I find myself appalled. It has never been my experience to find an organization surrounded by such controversy. For such a "bible based" house, they seem to pick and choose which portions of the text to adhere to, tossing out the rest to suit their own purposes, ridicule and admonish publicly any who come to them in privacy or any who speak out against them and they truly seem to live against the beliefs they claim to "teach". I feel sorry for the elders of this facility and wish that they might find the true path to the Lord. --["Users/Wes-P"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Grace Valley Christian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Grace_Valley_Christian_Center2011-04-15 18:13:49peacefulsparrowComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Grace Valley Christian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 69: </td> <td> Line 69: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-04-15 18:13:49'' [[nbsp]] There is a poem that I used to always recite as a child by Robert Frost and it is called "Fire and Ice"<br> + <br> + Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice, from what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire, but if I had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate, to say that for destruction ice, is also great and would suffice.<br> + <br> + It was my favorite poem of all time and the one that I best remembered --["Users/peacefulsparrow"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Grace Valley Christian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Grace_Valley_Christian_Center2011-04-15 18:04:16peacefulsparrowComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Grace Valley Christian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 67: </td> <td> Line 67: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-04-15 18:04:16'' [[nbsp]] Grace Valley Christian Center is what I like to call a true nondenominational church.

I've just heard so many fowl remarks about one girl who decided to leave. Everyone in Grace Alive gossips a lot, and they admit it. *sigh* If I could give anybody any piece of advice, it would be to not even begin going to this group. It only confuses people. There are framed pictures of the pastor in peoples' homes, a huge one in the gym, in the upstairs library. Attendees from the church will say it's just a tradition, but NO, they should be crucifixes or pictures of Jesus. What is wrong with these people? I am just so thankful for the community of Davis that has seen the pain this cult creates, and can help ward people away and help them through recovery from the cult.

I came to Davis in 2000, where I knew nothing about religion, faith, sin or God. My life was centered around myself, my studies and anything else that caught my eye. In Spring of 02' I attended Grace Valley, and my life radically changed. I realized I was a sinner, that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I needed to lead a holy life in order to glorify God. I went from being a punk-rock, self-centered independent opinionated woman, to a woman who seeks to glorify God every step she takes. When I found out how this site was being used to slander my church, I was horrified and I sought to delete everything that would keep people from attending. Grace Valley is '''NOT''' a cult. Webster's Dictionary defines cult as, "A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader." Since my faith is Christianity, which believes the bible as the inerrent total truth of God, then I suppose if you believe the bible to be "extremist or false" and God to be "an authoritarian, charismatic leader", then I suppose you are justified. Grace Valley is filled with some of the most Godly people I have ever met. People that have invited me into their lives to be apart of their family in a moment's notice. They are not full of lip service, they are '''REAL CHRISTIANS''' as in they practice what they preach. They are real people, who realized their need for Christ, and live their lives in thankful obedience to Him. In this day and age I can understand why 200+ happily married families, with obedient children that say please and thank you may weird some people out. I can even understand why some of you may think it productive to say hateful things on this page, even Jesus says "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." John 15:18 It is promised that those will come to tear down the good work of God, they have come, and they always will come, but I stand here in belief that "Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man."

But, if its false, nothing will come of it, and you have nothing to fear... Grace Valley may not be a cult in every sense of the word, but the leader of the church certainly fits your description of a cult leader: "an authoritarian charismatic leader", who not only guides but controls and manipulates the church members through fear and intimidation. Don't fall into the trap of taking all criticism of your church as an attack against you, for your faith in God. It is not "because of the Son of Man", that these criticisms come, but because of the unbiblical practices of the leaders at Grace Valley.

The dialogue below about GVCC being a cult or spiritually abusive may make for interesting reading, but the claims are both misguided and unfounded. As one who has carefully studied both Christian theology and church history (I have a Master’s degree in Religion), I can attest to the fact that GVCC is biblically sound in both its doctrine and its practice. This does not mean that everybody will appreciate it (as evidenced below). The message of the Bible and its authoritative claims are often offensive to people. GVCC’s mission is to clearly and fearlessly declare the message of salvation through Christ to a world that is “without hope and without God.” Standing for truth in a postmodern age is sure elicit the animosity of many.-- ["GregPerry"]</span> </td> <td> <span>+ = Experiences and Controversy =<br> + GVCC is surrounded by controversy and a wide range of experiences.

Please keep in mind that the following opinions are both valid (i.e., honestly held) and not universal:''<br> - <br> - CAUTION! Grace Valley Christian Center (GVCC) is an abusive, authoritarian personality cult masquerading as an orthodox church. It presents itself as being committed to the Lord Jesus Christ, to the inerrancy of Scripture, and to the Reformed tradition. However, GVCC holds to many unbiblical practices for which it refuses to repent. For example, the pastor is considered a "prophet" worthy of extraordinary deference, service, and one who cannot be questioned lest you be labeled "rebellious" or a "hater of authority"; the leadership "lords it over the flock" by intruding into matters where Christians have liberty such as which car to buy, what person to date/marry, which job to take, etc.; members are sometimes publicly ridiculed; confidential files are kept on members; conformity with the rules are enforced through fear, shame, and public humiliation; many believers have been spiritually and emotionally abused in "counseling" and from the pulpit; believers who sign membership agreements are later told it is "the equivalent to a marriage covenant" and is considered to be life-long, unless asked to leave by the pastor; those who leave without the pastors' approval are shunned (think Jehoveh Witnesses) by all church members, even by members of their own families. The leaders often slander those who leave and the victims are unable to defend themselves or tell the real story. The leaders have been confronted in person, by letter, and by phone, and called on to repent of these unbiblical practices and sins but have refused to repent. In fact, those so bold as to bring these matters to their attention are vilified as "agents of Satan". The pastors of the healthy evangelical churches in the area can attest to the damage done to wounded believers who now attend their churches. Despite the church's efforts to promote its image, don't be deceived. GVCC is not a healthy Christian fellowship - GVCC is a place where Christ's sheep are beaten. For more information on these kinds of authoritarian and abusive churches, see the following link: http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/probe/docs/abuse-ch.html --["JoyfulPilgrim"]<br> - <br> - * I have heard the same. My mother who is religious warned me to stay away from them when I moved to Davis years ago... I'll see if I can dig up some evidence rather than hearsay about it. I'm not interested in libel -- if the analysis is correct, let's get some proof (or at least first-hand accounts) up here; if we can't, let's kill the negativity. --["DomenicSantangelo"]<br> - <br> - * Hey, I used to go to Grace Valley and saw some pretty weird stuff. I saw people get humiliated and treated really badly. I also know from personal experience that once you're a member and decide to leave you will get shunned by pretty much all the people. I think JoyfulPilgrims' description is pretty accurate.--- ChristianDemetrius<br> - <br> - * I went to GVCC for almost two years. I don't particularly know what's appropriate on wiki, but I agree with JoyfulPilgrim's comments. I left the church for many of the same reasons. I wrote the elders a letter stating my concerns and why I was leaving. After they received my letter, I agreed to meet with the pastors. They didn't directly address my concerns, but instead focused on how sinful and inadequate a person I was to have such concerns. The pastor told me that I'm not exactly the brightest person to hold such convictions (since otherwise I would be attending Stanford or somewhere other than UC Davis). The parenthetical bit is as close to verbatim as I can get without a tape recorder. After that, I lost all of the friends I had made at GVCC. They refused to speak with me unless I repented. Twas a pretty bitter experience that I'd rather not hash up. --["TheoPaaske"]<br> - <br> - * Brighter equaling somewhere other than Davis?.. Jesus Christ, these people certainly ''are'' confused. --["JosephBleckman"]<br> - <br> - I, JoyfulPilgrim, would like to say that the "CAUTION!" description below is a result of my own "testimony" - my eyewitness account. [Remainder of comment was deleted by JoyfulPilgrim.]<br> - <br> - * After reading that, I am seriously concerned about what is taking place in Davis. I propose that we forward this to ["Judy Sakaki"], since some of this activity takes place on campus. The UCD Administration should be able to determine if further action is needed or not. This has grown beyond the scope of the wiki, and I hope that those who are anonymous will be willing to speak out. --["BrentLaabs"]<br> - * I concur that abuses should be forwarded to an official, particularly that if GVCC is technically on UCD land, the university could be held liable. - ["KarlMogel" KJM]<br> - * It may or may not be on university land, but Grace Alive is a ["SPAC"] registered organization. So it definitely affects the University.<br> - * There could very well be a hole in University Property where the church/academy are. When I said the chruch was on University property, I made that judgement based on the address. While the church may not be on university property, Grace Alive could be in some trouble. However, nothing will come of this unless people are willing to step forward. One has to remeber that we have the freedom of religion in this country. Where do you draw the line and tell someone that the way in which they practice their faith is wrong? - ["ArlenAbraham" arlen]<br> - * With the flurry of recent updates I think it would prove useful to wait a tad longer, to see if we can get anyone else to collaborate with testimony against the cult, but then it should definitely be brought to the University's attention. Some form of contact information for those who've experienced these things at GVCC would probably be helpful at that point, even if for the sake of anonymity freshly registered yahoo mail accounts are used. I say this, since I'm assuming whomever at the University might investigate these claims would wish to hear them firsthand, rather than secondhand. -- ["JosephBleckman"]<br> - <br> - I too have left this church in Davis because it has evolved to become a closed knit group of radical people who truly believe they are the only true Church in the city, county, and region. Their leadership is very authoritarian, orthodox and isolated from any authentic over sight from other presbyteries or bishops. Recently, some families have left and have been excommunicated, shunned by members, and despite many years of faithful service, malicious and slanderous information have been, and are continuing to be, communicated about them. There is a long list of other individuals, who have left the church over the years because they did not agree with the isolationism, the authoritarianism, the spiritual elitism, and the harsh treatment in counseling, just to name a few issues. They also were personally castigated, publicly vilified and maligned, and ostracized when they left. The most interesting experience for me has been the conversations I have had with teachers, coaches and Pastors I have known for many years in our region. They have ALL expressed great joy and relief to me for “getting out” of that terrible church. I have felt like NEO in the Matrix. Does everyone in Davis know about the extensive aberrations of GVCC and yet nobody has ever communicated these issues to the community at large or to the University? How can this be true? Should there be an official warning sent to students at UC where heavy recruiting of disciples takes place every Fall? The 5 or 6 lawyers on the church staff are lay ministers and perform legal work on behalf of the fellowship pro bono. I truly have fears of a lawsuit if I write an open letter to the editor concerning the issues I have brought up here. I hope the information shared here is helpful in warning the people and students of Davis about this organizations hyper orthodox position and the dangers they present to the authentic Christian community. Brett Feld<br> - * I wouldn't worry about a lawsuit. The only charge they could bring is libel, which in order to stick they would need to prove that what you said was false. - ["KenjiYamada"] (''And prove you wrote the things attributed to you.'')<br> - <br> - <br> - GVCC borders on being a cult, but actually is more accurately defined as a "spiritually abusive" church.

I came to Davis in 2000, where I knew nothing about religion, faith, sin or God. My life was centered around myself, my studies and anything else that caught my eye. In Spring of 02' I attended Grace Valley, and my life radically changed. I realized I was a sinner, that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I needed to lead a holy life in order to glorify God. I went from being a punk-rock, self-centered independent opinionated woman, to a woman who seeks to glorify God every step she takes. When I found out how this site was being used to slander my church, I was horrified and I sought to delete everything that would keep people from attending. Grace Valley is '''NOT''' a cult. Webster's Dictionary defines cult as, "A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader." Since my faith is Christianity, which believes the bible as the inerrent total truth of God, then I suppose if you believe the bible to be "extremist or false" and God to be "an authoritarian, charismatic leader", then I suppose you are justified. Grace Valley is filled with some of the most Godly people I have ever met. People that have invited me into their lives to be apart of their family in a moment's notice. They are not full of lip service, they are '''REAL CHRISTIANS''' as in they practice what they preach. They are real people, who realized their need for Christ, and live their lives in thankful obedience to Him. In this day and age I can understand why 200+ happily married families, with obedient children that say please and thank you may weird some people out. I can even understand why some of you may think it productive to say hateful things on this page, even Jesus says "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." John 15:18 It is promised that those will come to tear down the good work of God, they have come, and they always will come, but I stand here in belief that "Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man." Luke 6:22 I am eternally thankful for Grace Valley, its leaders, its members and the total truth of God that it stands for and proclaims. - ["EricaChaffin"]</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 44: </td> <td> Line 33: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- * '''"Faith and Reason Series" Lectures''' In recent years, Grace Valley Christian Center has been holding lectures under what they call the "Faith and Reason Series".

But, if its false, nothing will come of it, and you have nothing to fear... Grace Valley may not be a cult in every sense of the word, but the leader of the church certainly fits your description of a cult leader: "an authoritarian charismatic leader", who not only guides but controls and manipulates the church members through fear and intimidation. Don't fall into the trap of taking all criticism of your church as an attack against you, for your faith in God. It is not "because of the Son of Man", that these criticisms come, but because of the unbiblical practices of the leaders at Grace Valley. If the day ever comes that you decide to go to another church, their reaction will make everything become very clear to you.

This does not mean that everybody will appreciate it (as evidenced below). The message of the Bible and its authoritative claims are often offensive to people.

Please keep in mind that the following opinions are both valid (i.e., honestly held) and not universal:''<br> + <br> + CAUTION! Grace Valley Christian Center (GVCC) is an abusive, authoritarian personality cult masquerading as an orthodox church. It presents itself as being committed to the Lord Jesus Christ, to the inerrancy of Scripture, and to the Reformed tradition. However, GVCC holds to many unbiblical practices for which it refuses to repent. For example, the pastor is considered a "prophet" worthy of extraordinary deference, service, and one who cannot be questioned lest you be labeled "rebellious" or a "hater of authority"; the leadership "lords it over the flock" by intruding into matters where Christians have liberty such as which car to buy, what person to date/marry, which job to take, etc.; members are sometimes publicly ridiculed; confidential files are kept on members; conformity with the rules are enforced through fear, shame, and public humiliation; many believers have been spiritually and emotionally abused in "counseling" and from the pulpit; believers who sign membership agreements are later told it is "the equivalent to a marriage covenant" and is considered to be life-long, unless asked to leave by the pastor; those who leave without the pastors' approval are shunned (think Jehoveh Witnesses) by all church members, even by members of their own families. The leaders often slander those who leave and the victims are unable to defend themselves or tell the real story. The leaders have been confronted in person, by letter, and by phone, and called on to repent of these unbiblical practices and sins but have refused to repent. In fact, those so bold as to bring these matters to their attention are vilified as "agents of Satan". The pastors of the healthy evangelical churches in the area can attest to the damage done to wounded believers who now attend their churches. Despite the church's efforts to promote its image, don't be deceived. GVCC is not a healthy Christian fellowship - GVCC is a place where Christ's sheep are beaten. For more information on these kinds of authoritarian and abusive churches, see the following link: http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/probe/docs/abuse-ch.html --["JoyfulPilgrim"]<br> + <br> + * I have heard the same. My mother who is religious warned me to stay away from them when I moved to Davis years ago... I'll see if I can dig up some evidence rather than hearsay about it. I'm not interested in libel -- if the analysis is correct, let's get some proof (or at least first-hand accounts) up here; if we can't, let's kill the negativity. --["DomenicSantangelo"]<br> + <br> + * Hey, I used to go to Grace Valley and saw some pretty weird stuff. I saw people get humiliated and treated really badly. I also know from personal experience that once you're a member and decide to leave you will get shunned by pretty much all the people. I think JoyfulPilgrims' description is pretty accurate.--- ChristianDemetrius<br> + <br> + * I went to GVCC for almost two years. I don't particularly know what's appropriate on wiki, but I agree with JoyfulPilgrim's comments. I left the church for many of the same reasons. I wrote the elders a letter stating my concerns and why I was leaving. After they received my letter, I agreed to meet with the pastors. They didn't directly address my concerns, but instead focused on how sinful and inadequate a person I was to have such concerns. The pastor told me that I'm not exactly the brightest person to hold such convictions (since otherwise I would be attending Stanford or somewhere other than UC Davis). The parenthetical bit is as close to verbatim as I can get without a tape recorder. After that, I lost all of the friends I had made at GVCC. They refused to speak with me unless I repented. Twas a pretty bitter experience that I'd rather not hash up. --["TheoPaaske"]<br> + <br> + * Brighter equaling somewhere other than Davis?.. Jesus Christ, these people certainly ''are'' confused. --["JosephBleckman"]<br> + <br> + I, JoyfulPilgrim, would like to say that the "CAUTION!" description below is a result of my own "testimony" - my eyewitness account. [Remainder of comment was deleted by JoyfulPilgrim.]<br> + <br> + * After reading that, I am seriously concerned about what is taking place in Davis. I propose that we forward this to ["Judy Sakaki"], since some of this activity takes place on campus. The UCD Administration should be able to determine if further action is needed or not. This has grown beyond the scope of the wiki, and I hope that those who are anonymous will be willing to speak out. --["BrentLaabs"]<br> + * I concur that abuses should be forwarded to an official, particularly that if GVCC is technically on UCD land, the university could be held liable. - ["KarlMogel" KJM]<br> + * It may or may not be on university land, but Grace Alive is a ["SPAC"] registered organization. So it definitely affects the University.<br> + * There could very well be a hole in University Property where the church/academy are. When I said the chruch was on University property, I made that judgement based on the address. While the church may not be on university property, Grace Alive could be in some trouble. However, nothing will come of this unless people are willing to step forward. One has to remeber that we have the freedom of religion in this country. Where do you draw the line and tell someone that the way in which they practice their faith is wrong? - ["ArlenAbraham" arlen]<br> + * With the flurry of recent updates I think it would prove useful to wait a tad longer, to see if we can get anyone else to collaborate with testimony against the cult, but then it should definitely be brought to the University's attention. Some form of contact information for those who've experienced these things at GVCC would probably be helpful at that point, even if for the sake of anonymity freshly registered yahoo mail accounts are used. I say this, since I'm assuming whomever at the University might investigate these claims would wish to hear them firsthand, rather than secondhand. -- ["JosephBleckman"]<br> + <br> + I too have left this church in Davis because it has evolved to become a closed knit group of radical people who truly believe they are the only true Church in the city, county, and region. Their leadership is very authoritarian, orthodox and isolated from any authentic over sight from other presbyteries or bishops. Recently, some families have left and have been excommunicated, shunned by members, and despite many years of faithful service, malicious and slanderous information have been, and are continuing to be, communicated about them. There is a long list of other individuals, who have left the church over the years because they did not agree with the isolationism, the authoritarianism, the spiritual elitism, and the harsh treatment in counseling, just to name a few issues. They also were personally castigated, publicly vilified and maligned, and ostracized when they left. The most interesting experience for me has been the conversations I have had with teachers, coaches and Pastors I have known for many years in our region. They have ALL expressed great joy and relief to me for “getting out” of that terrible church. I have felt like NEO in the Matrix. Does everyone in Davis know about the extensive aberrations of GVCC and yet nobody has ever communicated these issues to the community at large or to the University? How can this be true? Should there be an official warning sent to students at UC where heavy recruiting of disciples takes place every Fall? The 5 or 6 lawyers on the church staff are lay ministers and perform legal work on behalf of the fellowship pro bono. I truly have fears of a lawsuit if I write an open letter to the editor concerning the issues I have brought up here. I hope the information shared here is helpful in warning the people and students of Davis about this organizations hyper orthodox position and the dangers they present to the authentic Christian community. Brett Feld<br> + * I wouldn't worry about a lawsuit. The only charge they could bring is libel, which in order to stick they would need to prove that what you said was false. - ["KenjiYamada"] (''And prove you wrote the things attributed to you.'')<br> + <br> + <br> + GVCC borders on being a cult, but actually is more accurately defined as a "spiritually abusive" church. It fits the classic definition of one. There are numerous websites available about this type of church.<br> + <br> + Having attended GVCC for a number of years, I can also attest to what goes on there.
