By our faith in Jesus Christ we are united as one to the universal, invisible Church of all believers, in all of history, in all the world. Through church membership, believers publicly profess their faith and practically live out that faith by committing to the local, visible church and by submitting to its leaders. Through church membership, pastors and elders are able to more carefully keep watch over the souls of the believers under their care.
“Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account.”
Membership classes are offered twice a year: Fall and Spring.
