Membership

 

Membership is an adventure with God to live a different kind of life.


We believe every Christian has a responsibility before God to use his or her time, talent, and resources, not only in the Church, but in common life, for the service of God. We are ambassadors who carry a message wherever we go and servants of God in whatever we are doing with our lives in the world.

We welcome you to consider membership of this vibrant, active, and growing congregation. Those seeking membership are invited to attend an Inquirers’ Class.

INQUIRERS’ CLASS
This Saturday morning session introduces the history and organization of our Church, what the Church and Congregation believe, what to expect in membership, dialogue on service and learning, and an opportunity to join. Attendees are not required to join and may use the session for information. Membership of our Church requires persons to confess the Christian faith, trust in Christ as our Lord and Savior, promise to follow Christ and Christ’s example for living, and commit to attend to and engage in the Church and its work.

JOINING
Upon concluding the Inquirer’s Class, should one decide to join, he or she would join by one of the following methods:

  • Confession of Faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (including readiness to be baptized if you have not been already)
  • Reaffirmation of Faith (for those who are not currently an active church member, but have been in the past); or
  • Transfer of Letter (for those transferring from another church)

Those who join will be welcomed into the Church on a Sunday following the Inquirer’s Class.
