MEMBERSHIP

Membership is partnership. It's how people express their continuing commitment to their local church in order to see God's global purposes accomplished. Through our membership process, attendees learn about the mission and vision of CBC, get a glimpse at what God is doing here and how they can best join others using their unique gifts, talents, and resources.

4 SIMPLE STEPS


The membership process at Central Bible Church is very simple:

Attend Membership Class

This short, staff-led class will familiarize you with the mission, beliefs and ministries of Central Bible Church. You will have plenty of time to ask questions in a friendly environment with others who are moving toward membership.

Meet with a Pastor

Meet with one of our church area pastors. Members are more than spectators. They commit themselves to the mission of their church through giving their time and resources. Members also place themselves under the spiritual direction of their leadership.

Meet with an Elder

We are pleased to know that every member has had opportunity to meet with one of our church elders to express their own spiritual journey and ask any remaining questions they may have before making this commitment and sign the membership covenant.

Annual Reaffirmation

According to our constitution, every member must maintain their active standing through a simple Membership Reaffirmation process each year. It's a simple way to keep the importance of church membership on our mind at the beginning of each year. Please remember that spouses must reaffirm their membership individually.
