Apply for church membership at Faith Community Church

Why is it important to become a member of Faith Community Church?

The local church body is an expression of the universal church of Jesus Christ.  Part of what it means to belong to the body of Christ is to belong to a body of local believers.  The Church universal, which is the Body of Christ, “Rom. 12:5”, is composed of all true believers in Christ.  Our local churches are to be microcosms of the larger Church universal.  As believers, it is important to commit to a local church where we can submit to the lordship of Christ by meeting regularly for worship, serving and encouraging one another, giving of our resources, and being held accountable for what we believe and how we live.

As we consider the importance of church membership, we reflect upon the words of Jesus in John 13: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for another” (vv. 34-35).  The New Testament is constructed with this understanding of covenant relationships among local believers whose lives are sacrificially knit together to build the body and advance the Great Commission.

Please complete the entire application before submitting
After a new member receives approval and is announced in the worship service, our practice is to send out their testimony to the church in an email. Do you grant permission for us to edit your testimony, if necessary, to fit the space allotted and send it to the church?
