We look forward to this time of exploring Methodism and membership with you. Our ultimate goal is to teach you what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
All are welcome!
You would think that going to church regularly should be enough to communicate your commitment. But there's something that happens in us when we stand up in front of God and everyone and say, "I am dedicated to this community." It's the difference between living with someone and marrying them.
Most people who attend a church don't really have any idea what their church believes about different doctrinal issues. The membership process is a great way to discover what beliefs are most important to the worshipping body - and what you truly believe.
Membership isn't about simply agreeing to some theological principles and pledging yourself to a church building. You are telling this community that you are there for them. Their concerns are your concerns. Their needs are your needs. In turn, they are there to support and encourage you, too!
Christianity is about opening our lives and inviting spiritually mature people in to encourage, grow, and empower us to live more dynamically. This requires vulnerability and mutual trust.
