How can “participating membership” be described Biblically? We have summarized it as an outline which helps identify the evidence of someone devoted to Christ and His church.
Membership is open to anyone who has received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, who has been baptized after becoming a Christian, and who is seeking to live in obedience to the principles of God’s Word.
Every fellowship has unique priorities of ministry, as well as varying expectations for members, or processes of leadership. We do require that each person requesting membership complete our Starting Point class in order to have a clear understanding of the vision and mission of our church. This class is available throughout the year; just give us a call at 604-464-6744 for the date of our next session.
At the end of the Starting Point class, you will have the opportunity to request Membership. You will then be contacted by an Elder who will arrange a time to meet and speak with you. This is an informal interview and nothing to be anxious about. When you have been accepted for Membership, you will receive a call from the church office asking what Celebration Service you would like to attend to publicly make your Membership declaration and receive your Certificate. Celebration Services are held several times a year.
If you wish to become a member, simply fill out a “Keeping In Touch” portion of the bulletin and drop it off at the Info Desk located in the foyer, or you can phone/email the church indicating your interest. Our office will contact you and send you all the information you will need to get the process started.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact 604-464-6744 or firstname.lastname@example.org
