We as a church believe in the concept of biblical church membership. We believe God’s desire for you is for you to be a committed Christ follower along with other Christ followers. This is formally known as Church membership. This type of membership is simply a way to commit to the local church, surround yourself with other disciples of Jesus, and display to the world who you serve as Lord and Savior.
Profession of Faith in Jesus Christ as the living Son of God.
Pastoral meeting: This will be a time for you to get to know our leadership and for our leadership to get to know you. The time spent will be mainly used to discuss the conversion experience, the gospel, and baptism. The meeting will conclude with prayer over the new believer and a scheduled public baptism.
Public baptism: This will be a time when the new believer can publicly profess their faith in Jesus.
Church Vote: The Church as a whole will vote on the new believer if she or he will join their fellowship.
Membership Class: The class will have four sessions and could last up to an hour each. These classes can be taken and completed at the earliest convienience of the new believer.
