Membership – How to Join
If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our three-step process to join MBC.
Membership Class – All prospective members must attend our Membership Matters class. The curriculum is composed of one 3-hour class in which we cover:
- Articles of Faith & Doctrinal Positions
- Church Covenant
- Vision & Mission
- Life as a Church
- Next Steps
The next course is offered on November 22nd, 1pm to 4pm. Youth & Family Ministry Building (YFMB). Upon completion, those who attended are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process.
Membership Interview – In a 45 minute meeting, the prospective member meets with an Elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders.
Elder Recommendation – At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the pastor will review the applicant’s testimony with the other elders. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.
