Membership

Thank you for your decision on joining us

Membership requires both Discipleship and love

but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. I Corinthians 12:4-6


Members
A member is considered ‘ACTIVE’ if attending annual meetings, participating in church discussion groups and activities, taking classes, or making contributions.
Membership status may be terminated by request of a member, the death of a member, misconduct, or inactivity for a period of two years or more.


Church membership is a public affirmation of someone’s public profession of faith in Christ, and Jesus has appointed

baptism as the means by which his followers publicly profess their faith. We can’t affirm the profession of someone who hasn’t yet made that profession. Baptism is how you publicly identify yourself with Christ and with his people (Acts 2:38–41). It’s how you visibly signify that you are united to Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6:1–4). It’s how you are identified before the church and the world as one who belongs to the Triune God (Matt. 28:19).


God selected people from every nation and tribe, scattered throughout the earth, all those who have been given the gift of faith, by God, to believe. Our local gathering, which is organized in a way so as to function within the parameters given in the scriptures, is often described as "the local church"


  • Membership is one way to raise the flag of faith and to state before God and others that you are committed to being a part of this local body of believers.

  • Membership is not simply an opportunity to say: "I’m a part of this organization", but rather a scriptural expression of covenant connectedness to a church.

  • Membership is a reflection of the organic community already existing in the body of Christ. Paul says we are a body ~ Romans 12:5. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.


When an individual is baptized, he becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). Because he is united to Christ and the other members of the body in this way, he is therefore qualified to become a member of a local expression of that body. One who, by his own volition, has declared allegiance, commitment, or submission to; or affiliation with our assembly specifically and exclusively, and who has been accepted by our group based upon certain criteria.


Church membership is important because it helps define the clergy’s responsibility


How do I become a member?


  1. If you have never been baptized, you will prepare for baptism.

  2. If you were baptized as an infant or young child and have not made a profession of faith and been confirmed, then you will prepare to reaffirm your baptism when you
    take the membership vows.

  3. If you are a member of another church where you get baptized as an adult, then you can be a member to the Independent United Methodist Fellowship because you did your profession of faith and were received as a member.
