In Acts 2, the Scriptures speak of the importance of belonging to a local body of believers and the biblical responsibility each believer has to commit themselves to the mission of the church. There were a devotion and commitment to Christ and to one another that was both encouraging and compelling, inviting and influential, life-giving and life-changing. It is that same dynamic of belonging and mission that we long for everyone at Fellowship to experience. We want everyone to know what it means to be devoted and committed to this local church family.

Here are some of the most popular questions we receive from people about Membership and what it means to become part of the family.

Can my children become members also?

Fellowship considers dependent children to be included in the church family by way of their parents’ membership. After their time in student ministries is complete, we would encourage them to become members as adults.

Do I have to be baptized to be a member?

We believe Scripture commands that baptism is a necessary step of obedience for every Christ-follower. It is also necessary for membership at Fellowship. If you have already been baptized after making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ then you don’t need to be baptized again. But those who have never been baptized should be baptized in keeping with Scripture and the example of Jesus. Our elders and pastors would love to visit with you to discuss any questions or concerns you might have about baptism.

For further study, see our paper on Baptism.

Does the Membership Covenant I signed twenty years ago still count?

To ensure our membership records are up to date, we are asking everyone who desires to be a member to complete a new membership commitment.

What is expected of Members?

During the class, we will unpack in detail what it means to be a member at Fellowship. Essentially, a member is someone who: 

  • Personally trusts in the saving work of Jesus Christ
  • Has been baptized
  • Consistently attends our public worship service
  • Belongs to a D-Group
  • Serves the Body of Fellowship
  • Is faithful to supporting the financial needs of Fellowship
  • Is committed to following the leadership and shepherding of Fellowship’s elders.
Can non-Christians be Members?

Our desire is to be generous and hospitable to all. Though we would love to see unbelievers become members of Fellowship, we have an even greater desire that they become brothers and sisters in Christ. That is their next spiritual step to take with us. Membership is for Christians because no one can live out the biblical responsibilities of membership without God’s grace and the filling of the Holy Spirit.
