Five Steps to Membership

If you have not yet joined our church as a member, here is a brief explanation of the process.

1. Register for Membership Classes

You can begin the registration process for the membership classes here.

2. Attend All Three Membership Classes

A complete class cycle—101, 102, and 103—is offered over the first three Sundays of every month (excluding December and July).

3. Complete Membership/Baptism Packet

Applications for Membership/Baptism will be provided once you register for the membership classes. This step includes:

  1. Completely fill out the Application for Membership/Baptism
  2. Read "What We Teach": Read Online | Download (PDF)
  3. Read "Grace Community Church By-Laws": Download (PDF)
  4. Read "Affirmation of Commitment": Read Online | Download (PDF)
  5. Listen to the "Understanding Baptism" sermon: Listen Online | Baptism FAQ
  6. Write your testimony: Testimony Instructions and Sample (PDF)

4. Attend Pastoral Interview/Schedule Baptism

Contact your fellowship group pastor to schedule a time for your application to be reviewed and signed. This also serves as a great opportunity for an elder of our church to answer any questions you may have. You can also contact the membership office if you need help scheduling an interview. For those who need to be baptized, your baptism will be scheduled after you return the signed application to the Membership Center.

5. Right Hand of Fellowship (RHOF)

Those who finish the membership process will be welcomed as members at the next RHOF service. Before the Sunday evening service, there is a brief reception to welcome all new members, and at the close of the evening service, new members will make an affirmation of their commitment to the local body here at Grace Church.

A Proper View of Man

Humanism isn’t a modern philosophy—mankind’s desire to proclaim its own greatness can be traced all the way back to the book of Genesis. Since the Tower of Babel, people have consistently devised and seized opportunities to praise the human spirit...
