If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our three step process by which to join MBC.
All prospective members must attend our membership class: Welcome to the Family: Living life Together for the Glory of God. This class consists of two 90 minute classes. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings. Upon completion, those who attended both classes are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process.
In a 45 minute meeting, the prospective member meets with an elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders.
At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the elder will review the applicant’s testimony with the other elders. Upon receiving their collective approval the applicant will become a member and introduced to the congregation.
