Why Become a Member?
In a world of radical individualism,
the church of Jesus Christ stands as a compelling contrast.
Scripture declares that Jesus Christ was risen from the dead to form a new community. Moreover, Jesus said that all the world would recognize those who are his by the way they love one another. Church membership is a commitment first to Christ and second to love his people in the local church. Restoration holds church membership in high regard.
How do I become a member?
- The first step of membership is declaring faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that public baptism is the method ordained by scripture whereby disciples of Jesus publicly proclaim their faith.
- Second, attend a Credo class.
Credo is where those who are new to faith or new to Restoration Church learn what is expected as a member.
- Third, set up an interview with the elders.
Relationship is vital to membership; therefore, potential new members are invited to meet with our elders to answer any further questions. This is a casual time where members and church leaders can learn how to integrate into the Restoration community.
- Fourth, attend a quarterly new member meeting.
Member meetings are where new members are introduced and officially welcomed to the community of Restoration. Quarterly member meetings include prayer, vision casting, and a time for Q&A.
