Uniting with God's People

To many peo­ple in our day, church mem­ber­ship seems like an out­dated prin­ci­ple. It might seem like that to you. You might be inter­ested in serv­ing God but see the local church as a hin­drance rather than a help toward that end.

You won’t find a verse in Scrip­ture that says, “Thou shalt join a local church.” But we believe that’s not because the authors of Scrip­ture didn’t think church mem­ber­ship was impor­tant. Rather, we believe it’s because church mem­ber­ship was sim­ply assumed. Just con­sider these truths:

  • Paul taught that Jesus gave Him­self for the church. Jesus did this to redeem us from law­less­ness and to purify for Him­self a peo­ple for His own pos­ses­sion who are zeal­ous for good works (Titus 2:11–14).
  • We are com­manded to exhort one another daily and to meet together reg­u­larly so that we do not become hard­ened by the deceit­ful­ness of sin (Hebrews 3:12–14, 10:19–25).
  • We are com­manded to use our spir­i­tual gifts to build up the church; the gifts are not merely — or even mostly — for pri­vate edi­fi­ca­tion (1 Corinthi­ans 12:4–11; Eph­esians 4:11–16).
  • We are com­manded to love one another not in word or talk, but in deed and in truth (1 John).
  • We are com­manded to obey our lead­ers and sub­mit to them because they are the ones God has appointed to keep watch over us for our spir­i­tual good and because they will answer to God for their lead­er­ship (Hebrews 13:17).

To live out these com­mands in a mean­ing­ful way, we believe that we must com­mit our­selves to other like-minded Chris­tians through mem­ber­ship in a local church. 

Who Can Be a Member at New Life?

Joining New Life is an intentional process that involves you (a prospective member), our pastors, and our church body. Membership at New Life is open to any Christian who has been baptized by immersion after conversion, agrees to uphold New Life's Statement of Faith and Church Covenant, and has completed our membership process.

What is the Membership Process?

Attend Both Membership Classes 

Membership Classes are offered three times per year. Each class is held on Sunday afternoon from 2-4:30pm. If you are unable to attend both classes due to extenuating circumstances, we permit prospective members to listen to the class audio online. Please contact us if you would like to join but are unable to attend our upcoming classes.

  • The audio from our mem­ber­ship classes is also avail­able.

Membership Class 1 and Membership Class 2

  • Also, you can find a copy of our membership book here.

Submit a Membership Questionnaire

Our Membership Questionnaire helps our pastors get to know your story, assess your understanding and application of the Gospel, and care for you spiritually.

Attend a Personal Meeting

At this meeting, at least one elder will meet with you (or you and your spouse) to go over your Membership Questionnaire(s), ask any necessary clarifying questions, and answer your questions about New Life. The goal of this meeting is to ensure that each prospective member meets the qualifications for membership at New Life. We’ll explain any next steps at your personal meeting.
