To many people in our day, church membership seems like an outdated principle.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:
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.
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.
Membership Classes are offered three times per year. Each class is held on Sunday afternoon from 2-4:30pm in The Preserve. Our next classes will be held on January 28th and February 4th.
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. You'll need to pick up your book(s) from the church office prior to listening to the audio files below. The audio from our membership classes, as well as a digital copy of our Membership Book, are available below.

Our Membership Questionnaire helps our pastors get to know your story, assess your understanding and application of the Gospel, and care for you spiritually.
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.
Find out when our next membership class is on our events page. You can also contact us if you have any other questions.
