At Fellowship Church, we believe strongly in church membership. We believe that church membership is both biblical and for the good for every Christian. The local church is Jesus' discipleship program, and joining ourselves to the local church is vital for our spiritual health, discipleship, and obedience. If you're ready to pursue membership with us, you're in the right place. This page will walk you through the process and what to expect. And if Fellowship isn't the right church for you, please let us know. We have great relationships with other gospel-proclaiming and faithful assemblies in our area and would be happy to help you find a church home.
Becoming a church member says some essential (and glorious) things like: I am a Christian, I intend to live like it, I join myself to this body of believers, and I will promote and guard the unity and purity of this church and her gospel. Therefore, we have a process for those who seek to join us in membership. The membership process consists of the following steps:
- Review our Membership Information Packet which gives an overview of our church and ways you can be involved.
- Read our Member Covenant, which details certain expectations and commitments we make to one another as members such as:
- Fill out the membership application (link below).
- Interview with an elder of the church. The interview consists of you sharing your testimony, signing the new member covenant, and discussing next steps.

** Note about children and membership:
Parents, if your child is a baptized believer they may become church members as well. We recommend reading this page and supporting documents together with your child in an age-appropriate way for them, at your discretion. When a child is inducted into membership, they are a "junior member" of Fellowship Church until they reach 18 years of age. As a junior member, they are exempt from certain responsibilities (such as voting and tithing) but do come under our pastoral care and oversight. You may ask your interviewing church leader if you have further questions.
