Looking to Join a Church

Are you looking for a church to call your own? We’d love to have you join us, and we can say that with full sincerity even if we haven’t met, because no matter who you are, we start from the knowledge that Jesus died for you just as he died for us. If God himself cares so much for you, how could we do otherwise?

Visitors are always welcome

You don’t need to join the church to visit and you can visit as often as you like. You can expect to see people chatting before and after the service. You’ll be greeted with smiles and handshakes and some people might introduce themselves and ask your name.

During the service, our focus is on God’s Word and we won’t call you out. You can simply observe if you like, or join us in our worship in keeping with your conscience.

There is one thing in our regular worship that is for members only, and that is the Sacrament of Holy Communion. In this Holy Supper, we receive Jesus’ body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins and express our unity with him and with one another. For this reason, we require that those who join us for this sacrament be instructed and publicly confess the faith we share.

What does it mean to be a member?

Membership consists of

The members of our church don’t agree on everything in life. They cheer for different sports teams. They work different kinds of jobs. They have different opinions about politics. But they do agree on the Word of God. Even with those things which are difficult for them (and our society does oftentimes make being a Christian hard!), they are willing to say, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4, KJV). We study those issues together. God has spoken; it is not up to us to add or subtract. As Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them by the truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17, EHV).

Because of this, God produces a great and close relationship between us. We learn to see each other as a family, true brothers and sisters in Christ. We pray for each other, share in each other’s joys and burdens, and serve each other as we are able.

Membership comes with great blessings

Membership is both a privilege and a responsibility.

How Do I Become a Member?

The first step is to talk to our pastor. Although all our members care for one another, our pastor has been called by God through our congregation to care for people’s spiritual needs. He will be happy to talk to you briefly around church services, or in greater length during the week.

You can also start making church a regular part of your life before becoming a member. Nonmembers are welcome to visit as often as they like and they’re welcome to be a part of many of our church activities. By doing this, you will get to know our teachings, our worship, and our members.

We regularly offer a free Bible Information Class which covers all the basics of Biblical Christianity. This course covers a wide variety of topics, including Creation, Baptism, the Ten Commandments, Judgment Day, and Justification by Grace through Faith. This is the best way to learn about our church and is normally a requirement for those who wish to become members. Upon completing the class, students have the opportunity to speak with the pastor, have any further questions answered, and decide if they wish at this time to join as a member. Some decide to wait. Others are eager to join. All benefit from the class, and we pray that God will continue to increase their faith and knowledge of him.

If you are interested in joining one of these classes, please speak to our pastor.
