Joining our church family is a big and important step, one that we take seriously. Our prayer is that all who join our family will choose to remain with us for years to come. Joining a church family is a primary way to identify oneself as a follower of Christ, and a significant way to partner in Kingdom purposes.
The PROCESS begins with FILLING of the CONNECTION CARD thereby giving relevant, basic information about your personae to the church. This is simply an informal way of getting to know one another better.
Church will then WELCOME NEW MEMBERS into the family through the three avenues listed below:
- 1st Timers Team,
- House Fellowship
This depends on the background of the new member(s) involved.
REQUIREMENTS FOR MEMBERSHIP
