Providence Church Membership Information
How to become a member of Providence Church
In the New Testament, when a person is born again, he or she is assumed to be a part of a believing community is grafted into the body of Christ and becomes a member of the universal Church of God. It is our conviction at Providence Church that all members of the universal Church should be vital members of a local believing community where they can devote themselves to teaching, fellowship, prayer and the Lord's Supper. It is in the context of a local church that a believer grows in the knowledge of God, is held accountable for his relationship with Christ, and participates in biblical Christian fellowship. In light of biblical admonitions and the New Testament pattern, we encourage all believers to seek the Lord's guidance and join a local body.
To unite with Providence Church by becoming a member, you must have professed your faith in Christ and have been baptized as a believer. If you have professed your faith and desire to unite with our church please join us for 4 classes that will meet during the Adult Bible Study classes on Sunday mornings at 9:15 on January 7, 14, 21, and 28. We will look at the membership videos throughout these weeks and have a time of discussion and fellowship each Sunday. This class presents who we are as a local body, what we believe, what ministries we offer, and what areas of ministry you can become involved in.
There will be an Interview Luncheon on March 11 for you to attend after you have turned in your membership paperwork during the weeks after the classes.
Presentation of all new members will be on April 1.
If you can’t attend the classes in January, we will offer the classes again in April.
