Why Membership?

Attending a church is great, but the Bible calls Christian disciples to committed, public unity with one another. Membership (based on 1 Corinthians 12) is the foundational way we move toward that reality. Learn more about the benefits and necessity of membership here

Do my children join too? 

We practice infant baptism for the children of believers. Infant baptism is not salvation, but it is a sacrament given by God to his people and signifies admission into the church family.  That shapes so much of our ministry to children: how we treat them as a part of God’s people and call them to faith (Acts 2:39, Acts 16). When they are ready to make a profession of faith, they are invited into full membership and can come to the Lord’s supper (1 Cor 11:27-28).  If you are a member and want to have your children baptized, please contact our children’s ministry director.

How Do I Become a Member?

Christ called believers (and their children) to enter into this relationship through the sacrament of baptism. For those who have already been baptized, membership can be transferred and made public by a reaffirmation of our commitment to Christ and His church.

What if my children want to make a profession of faith?

When children are ready to make a public profession of faith, we are excited to invite them to join as full members of the church. The process is similar to how adults join but we do periodically offer special membership classes just for older children. If your child is interested in joining please contact our youth ministry director

 

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

—1 Corinthians 12:27
