Congregation Membership

Congregation Membership

How May 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 of the church's decision and then congratulate you by introducing you to the church at a convenient service date.

Church Membership  

We believe church membership to be an important part of following Christ. The Christian needs to be connected through the bride, the Church. Christ's apostles commanded us to encourage 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.
