Become a Member
How Do I Become a Member?
The primary requirement for joining Northway Church is to attend Discover Northway. At Northway, membership matters. Therefore, we require attendance at this class so each person hears all that the church offers and what is expected of members. The other requirement for membership is that each person is a follower of Jesus Christ as demonstrated by a personal salvation experience and baptism by immersion. This element is fully explained at the Discover Northway class.
This is a class offered three to four times each year as an opportunity for you to learn more about our church. Dinner is provided followed by a discussion led by our Lead Pastor, Kevin Mills. Over the course of the evening, you will discover the characteristics that make Northway unique including our vision, purpose, beliefs, and ministries. As a result of attending, it is our hope that you will identify a “next step” in your involvement at the church. At the conclusion of the evening you’ll also have the opportunity to become a member of the church, though there is no obligation to do so. Childcare is available, so please be sure to indicate your need.
Why Should Someone Become a Church Member Instead of Just Attending?
While we recognize that the Bible does not speak directly to church membership, the Bible does refer frequently to the importance of believers gathering together on a regular basis. By joining a church fellowship, members:
- identify with Christ and this local church
- take responsibility for others in the fellowship
- are able to fill certain roles in the church
- are able to vote on important church matters
Our next Discover Northway class is coming soon, so stay tuned! If you have any questions call the church office at 478-476-1971 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
