"For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."
- Romans 12:4-5 -
We believe church membership to be an importnant part of following Christ. It is vital for the Christian to be connected to one another through the bride, the Church. Christ's apostles commanded us to encouarge one another in The Faith and to hold each other accountable to God's Word. As a member of the local church we may serve Christ and other believers for His glory.

How Do I Join the Church?
We would like to get to know you! At the end of every service Pastor Scott gathers in the lobby and is available to you. All you need to do is express interest in joining the church to Pastor Scott.
Get connected with us and share your story! After you have set up a time with Pastor Scott to meet together, we would love to hear your testimony, declare a statement of faith and let us know if you need a transfer of letter if you are formally a member of another church. From there, the following Sunday, the church body will have a member meeting after the service and will vote on your membership.
We will inform you on the churches decision and then congratulate you by introducing you to the church that very next service!
