Have you ever wondered why churches have membership classes? Does it really matter if you join a church? Isn’t a personal relationship with Jesus what really matters? Such questions are common, and not altogether surprising given our individualistic culture and natural tendency towards independence. However, such questions reveal a misunderstanding about the church and God’s purposes in and through her. God’s specific purposes for His people are accomplished as individuals join themselves to and participate in local churches. While all genuine believers are members of the universal body of Christ, they are to express this tangibly through membership in a specific local church.
If you’re new to the church or have attended for some time but have not explored membership, you are encouraged to attend our Understanding Sovereign Grace Church (USGC) class. During this class, you'll learn about:
Our Doctrine: The Core Beliefs of Our Church
Our Priorities: The Values that Shape Our Church
Our Community: The Commitments We Make to Each Other
USGC classes are held twice a year, in the fall and spring, and are typically on a Saturday morning from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm at one of our church campuses. Check our church calendar for any upcoming classes. If you have any questions, email the church office.
