We believe that church membership is a meaningful and significant commitment. Thus, our desire is to clearly communicate our most important beliefs, values, and expectations to anyone who wishes to unite with this congregation. Before being accepted into full membership, each candidate will be required to go through the process listed below:
- Membership Matters Course – This course is where you will be introduced to The Church at Alden Bridge’s statement of faith, core values, mission, and vision. This meeting happens in person usually about once a quarter, but can happen at any time upon request. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
- Elder Meeting – Each member candidate will sit down with one of The Church at Alden Bridge’s Elders to discuss the Membership & Service Application and to answer any remaining question.
- Public Profession – Once the above two requirements are fulfilled, each candidate will be presented as new members of The Church at Alden Bridge at the conclusion of a Sunday worship service.
Beyond the chief requirement of a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the other elements of this process are to ensure that all beliefs, values, and expectations are communicated up front, which we believe contributes to a healthy church experience from the very beginning.
