Why Church Membership?

Would you like to get more information about the values and philosophy of Grace Church? Have you been thinking about formally joining the body of believers here?

Intro to Grace is a 2-3 session class for adults and teens taught by one of our elders and offered roughly every quarter.  You will have the opportunity to learn more about Grace Church's basic beliefs and ministries.

Anyone is welcome to attend. Attending does not necessitate membership, but anyone desiring to become a member of Grace Church needs to go through the class. 

You will also be asked to fill out a membership/baptism questionnaire as well.


Why is church membership so important?

  • It indicates that you accept responsibility for the spiritual health and growth of fellow believers in the family of God (Gal 6:1-2Eph 4:16Heb 10:24-25).

  • It makes you accountable to mature brothers and sisters in Christ for your walk with God (1 Cor 5:1-4).

  • It clearly designates you as one of the flock for which our elder team must provide care (Heb 13:17).

  • It declares that you are sacrificially committed to a shared vision for doing ministry with the other members of Grace Church (Acts 2:42-47).
