Becoming a Member
At least four times during the year Pastor Chris will hold a Welcome Class for New and Prospective Members. We encourage you to participate in this class if you have recently joined or are thinking of joining.
There are three ways to become a member:
By Profession of Faith and Baptism – Those making a public profession of personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are received into the membership awaiting baptism.
By Letter from a church of like faith and practice – For persons who are members of another church that holds to the truths of evangelical theology and baptism by immersion in water, our church clerk will write to your previous church requesting a transfer of letter.
By Statement of Faith – For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion but are not members of another church of like faith and practice.
If you are interested in membership, we ask that you contact our church office to schedule a meeting with one of our pastors or staff, and to register for the next Welcome Class. After your meeting with the pastor, we would also encourage you to come forward during the invitational hymn at any of our morning services. The pastor will be down front to greet you and present you to the church as a candidate for membership. Afterwards, you will remain at the front of the church and the church family comes forward to welcome you into our church family. We would also like to take a picture of you to publish on our new member bulletin board.
