What is Church Membership?
Church membership is about submitting to one another and representing Jesus Christ together in the local church. The New Testament points us toward a clearly defined church membership for our building up, accountability, and encouragement in faith. See our membership process below.
- Membership Class: Participate in a Membership Class where you will hear the EBC Statement of Faith, membership covenant, and all that membership entails.
- Pastoral Interview: Following the membership class is an interview with the Pastor in order to get to know you and hear the account of how you came to saving faith, as well as affirm the candidates submission to our membership covenant and statement of faith.
- Congregational Affirmation: At a regular Business Meeting (Members Only Meeting) the Pastor will recommend the candidate to the church for membership. Upon church approval the candidate will be admitted to the church as a member (pending Baptism if necessary).
Exploring Emmanuel, our membership class, will take place at least once every quarter as needed. If you'd like to sign up for an upcoming Exploring Emmanuel event, click here to fill out the form.
