Application Overview and Instructions

Application Overview:

The application will ask for biographical information, a short description of your relationship with Christ, an affirmation of our statement of faith, and your commitment to pursue six spiritual practices.

Since our mission is to transform ordinary people into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, it is essential that our members have a relationship with Jesus Christ. If you’d like a simple explanation of what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, you may click here.

As we said at the beginning, we equate membership with involvement. A commitment to engage in our ministry process of Loving God, Growing in Community, and Serving the Church and the World are essential.  We believe the process of being fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ takes place over time, and as you become a member we want to help you plug in and encourage you to continue in this incredible process.  During your membership interview, the elders can explore with you the best next step for you in our ministry process.

We want to make this experience as easy as possible for you. So, if any section is unclear, or if you have questions, please click here to contact someone regarding membership.
