We can’t wait to meet you. Welcome home!
An important aspect of a strong family is commitment: loving and supporting each other, working together, and identifying with family values and beliefs. Belonging to a church family is very similar and involves membership. Membership is also a commitment, expressing an individual’s identification, participation and partnership with a local church.The church is much more than an organization; it is a family in the best sense of the word.
If you’re interested in becoming a member of Grace Bible Church, we would love to meet you. The membership process has three simple steps and generally doesn’t take long.
- Attend a ‘Join Grace’ membership class. The class occurs quarterly, usually on Sunday after the second service. Over lunch, we’ll talk through what we believe at Grace Bible Church (including our Statement of Faith); our church structure, Bylaws, and leadership; and what it means to be a member of our community. We cover next steps and answer questions, too. Childcare is provided.
- Complete and submit a membership application. The application is a single page with a few basic questions about your personal faith. It serves as a friendly introduction.
- Interview with one of our elders. The interview is a helpful touchpoint that lets us meet personally, follow up on your application, and answer any questions you might have.
After the interview, based on the elder’s recommendation, our Board of Elders will vote on your membership. Upon acceptance, we’ll make every effort to welcome you into the community at a subsequent worship service. From there, you can explore opportunities to get involved or simply enjoy being a new member in the congregation.
