Membership

Becoming a Member

At Gospel Life Church, we desire to "invite those around us to embrace the good news of Jesus in all of life." In light of that mission, it is our aim to draw in unbelievers, facilitate their faith in Jesus Christ, baptize them – signifying new spiritual life – and ultimately disciple them to partner with us on our mission to glorify God. For this reason, we desire that everyone who attends Gospel Life Church would become a Covenant Member of our church body.

Membership is important because it is a covenant between you and your spiritual family at Gospel Life Church. It is a commitment on our behalf to teach, disciple, counsel, and care for your spiritual well-being. It is also a commitment on your behalf to be held to a greater degree of responsibility, to encourage and edify the church body, and to serve and sacrifice to the glory of God.
Becoming a Covenant Member is an important decision - one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is our hope that God would lead you to become a part of our spiritual family here at Gospel Life Church. Please pray about partnering with us on our mission.

Baptism

Baptism is the new believer’s initial declaration of public obedience to Christ. If you have not been baptized by immersion following salvation, this is the first step we ask you to take in order to become a Covenant Member at Gospel Life Church.

Attend Our Connection Class

Our Connection Class is focused on the mission, values, and discipleship strategy at Gospel Life Church. The purpose of this class is to explore these elements of our local body and help you understand how they play out practically at Gospel Life Church.

Our goals for this class will be:
  • To help you understand why the Great Commission is our mission.
  • To inform you on how our values influence our mission.
  • To help you understand our strategy for making disciples at Gospel Life Church.

At the end of this class, should you decide, you will be able to pursue Covenant Membership at Gospel Life Church – not only understanding what it means to be a Covenant Member, but helping you get equipped to operate as one.

Membership Covenant

The final step in the membership process is completing a membership interview and signing the Membership Covenant. This will be done after the completion of the Connection Class and will provide you with the opportunity to have any questions answered by one of our pastors. Once you have completed the requirements for membership and signed the covenant, you will be presented as a new Covenant Member before our congregation.
