Membership

The joy of belonging to a local church

Membership Class

We’re excited to have you consider The Village Church as the place you want to belong. Our Membership Class is the place to go to hear about what we believe God is up to in the world, what He is doing at The Village Church, and it also provides us an opportunity to get to know you and your story.

  • We want to honor your time, so we ask that before the class, you complete some pre-class work and reading and prepare your salvation story to share in the class.
  • The class will last for an hour and a half and will consist of a time to learn about the story of The Village and share your own salvation story. In the first session, we’ll cover The Village culture and what’s currently happening, how to get involved in our various ministries, and have a time for Q&A. In the second session, you’ll meet other people at your table and have the opportunity to briefly share your story.
  • After the class, you will be contacted by The Village to affirm your membership or to provide the necessary next steps toward membership. Then, at the next Celebration Service, we’ll celebrate our new members.

To see when the next Membership Class, please check the Events page.

Baptism

Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give sufficient testimony to the basics of Christian beliefs. We baptize by immersion because it is not only the original significance of the word but also best symbolizes the reality to which baptism points—our death and resurrection in Christ.

If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask you to take this step before becoming a member. To help prepare you, we offer a Baptism Class. The class covers the biblical significance of baptism, frequently asked questions and gives you an opportunity to share your testimony.
