Baptism and Membership

Following Jesus has always involved community, from the group of disciples He hand-picked during earthly ministry to Paul’s teaching about the body of Christ. From the very first, Christians formally expressed that new identity through baptism. In fact, even Jesus Himself was baptized! At Christ Church, many regular attendees also commit to the local community through formal membership.

Baptism

Through a one-time water baptism, Christians signal our union with Christ and participation in His worldwide, universal church. At Christ Church, we baptize both adults and infants during Sunday worship services, every first Sunday of the month.

  • To learn more, attend a Baptism and Membership discussion. These periodic gatherings provide a chance to discuss baptism and church membership with the pastors.
  • After the gathering, an elder will schedule a personal appointment with you before scheduling you for the next baptism.

Membership

Through formal membership, regular Christ Church attendees commit to the vision and mission of the church. Members help elect church leaders, known as elders and deacons. Members also have a responsibility to serve Christ Church and care for her community. Some leadership roles require church membership.

We would love for you to become part of what God is doing in and through our church community. God has brought you to Christ Church for a purpose, and we are dedicated to helping you discover how Christ Church can minister both to you and through you in this community.

  • Part of becoming a member involves being baptized, or renewing your baptismal vows if you have already been baptized.
