Why Membership?

We believe membership in a local church is important for all believers in Jesus Christ. You don't have to be in perfect agreement with everything we teach, but we do hope you would carefully consider the Bible's call for each member of the body of Christ to be connected with other members. The New Testament describes how the Lord "added to their number," of those who were joining the local church (Acts 2:47), and we would love for you to join our church family.

If you decide you would like to become a member of our church family, here are the steps you'd need to take:

  1. Watch a video series that teaches you about our church and our unique approach to ministry.
  2. Meet with one of the pastors over a meal for a time to discuss your faith and share any questions or concerns that you may have.
  3. Meet with the elders to take your vows as an affirmation or reaffirmation of your faith and intent to join our community of believers.
  4. Share your vows before the church and be baptized, if you haven't been baptized before.
