We value membership at The Fellowship.
God gave the church to His children – a spiritual family to belong to. Membership helps build up, strengthen, serve, rebuke, and pray for Christians. As a member, you can help shape the church for global impact.
What does it take to be a member?
To be a member of The Fellowship requires a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus (Romans 10:9-10). Inclusion in the larger, universal body of Christ is the only biblical prerequisite to membership in a local body of believers. If you have questions about salvation, please talk to us after the class.
On the heels of belief, New Testament Christians demonstrated their entrance into the New Covenant by being baptized. According to the example we see in the New Testament, we encourage baptism before, or as part of, the membership process.

God expects you to be a member of the church family.

The Heart of Serving
We serve for a multitude of reasons here at The Fellowship.
• We love God, we love His Church and we love His people.
Out of our overflow of love and worship to God, we commit to serving with the local church. We believe that God loves the local church (Ephesians. 5:25-27) and that He will use the church to reach people for Jesus and help them grow to be like Him.
• Biblical Servanthood
We look at Jesus’ model for us as a kingly servant of men. Jesus is showing His love to ALL of His disciples in this act.
• God is brought glory through our gifts
God has given you gifts that should be used to bring Him glory.
(1 Peter 4:10-11)
