Membership is an important part of committing to the local church. Indeed, Paul writes, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” (1 Corinthians 12:27)

To qualify to become a Member of the Church, a person must:

  • Confess his/her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as his/her Savior from his/her sin
  • Be baptized and have the same belief in the Statement of Faith as set forth in Article II of the By-Laws
  • Participate in worship services at the Church for at least six (6) consecutive months
  • Attend a Church membership class or series of classes (a “Church Membership Program”)
  • Be at least eighteen (18) years of age

(source: Section 3.02 Member Qualification from the By-Laws)
