Join

Joining a church is not something that is done thoughtlessly or carelessly; our own spiritual growth and the spiritual growth of our families is an important matter. We certainly should ask what is involved in church membership! From a Biblical standpoint, anyone who believes and confesses what we believe and confess and desires to take part in both the privileges and the responsibilities of church membership is welcome as a member of this congregation.

Scripture does not actually define a specific process by which someone is put on a membership list. Instead God lays out some principles by which he cares for us spiritually through pastors and through other Christians. The process is just a way we recognize what God is accomplishing through His church.
