27 September 2018 Membership at Autumn Ridge
How to join Autumn Ridge Church
First, be certain you have fulfilled the two basic Biblical requirements for church membership:
- Personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord
- Believer’s baptism
Then, let us know of your desire to make this church your place of fellowship and service by communicating your interest on one of the Connection Cards found in the sanctuary or by talking with a member of our church staff.
Next, attend the ArchWays class, held twice a year, so you know more about our church. Following this, we ask that you meet with a pastor to discuss your desire to join Autumn Ridge Church. Finally, be officially and warmly welcomed into the membership of our church family at one of our services.
The need for spiritual birth
Realizing my guilt before God, I have confessed my sins to him and received the Lord Jesus Christ who bore my sins on the cross, as my Savior.
Why can’t I just attend, receive the good that God has for me, and not become formally involved as a member? What value is there in church membership?
These are honest questions, which need to be answered. In fact, you may be considering these questions right now. If you would like to know more about active participation in Autumn Ridge Church, please call the church office at 288-8880 or contact Dorothy Morris at Membership@AutumnRidgeChurch.org for further information.
