How does the conc. of a substance affect the gibbs free energy?

Within the equation for Gibbs Free Energy, delta G=nFEcell, n is the number of moles of electrons transferred in a reaction. This would be the quantities in the half reactions that must cancel out before writing the complete net reaction. Therefore, I don't think that that the concentration of reactants would affect Gibbs Free Energy, since it wouldn't affect the net reaction.
