Making and Maturing disciples of Jesus Christ by committing to one another.

Membership at Saving Grace
Saving Grace Church practices formal church Membership.  Through Membership, the Pastors know who we are responsible to care for and lead, and the Members are known by and integrated into the life and ministry of the body.

Why Membership?
 The Scripture speaks of individual Christians as bricks of a building (1 Peter 2:5), parts of a body (Romans 12:4-5), members of a family (Ephesians 1:5), and fellow citizens of a country (Ephesians 2:19).  When sinners came to faith in Jesus, they were immediately added to the number of the church (Acts 2:47).  The Christian life is fundamentally corporate.  We are saved into a new community.

By becoming a Member of a local church, the church affirms your profession of faith and you are known by that congregation as part of the family.

Becoming a Member:
We hold Membership Classes twice a quarter on a Sunday afternoon.  This two-hour class explores the basis, purpose, and function of Membership.

To sign up for the next class, visit the Coffee Bar or email Pastor David:

Membership Commitments
All Members of Saving Grace commit to the following:

Having, as we trust, been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to Him, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.

We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace.

We will walk together in love as Christ commands, caring for each other, watching over each other, and encouraging and admonishing one another as occasion requires.

We will regularly attend the church’s gatherings and faithfully pray for one another.

We will endeavor to lead those in our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, as well as to seek the salvation of our family and friends.

We will rejoice at each others’ happiness and bear each others’ burdens and sorrows.

With God’s help, we will seek to live carefully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly desires. Our symbolic burial and resurrection in baptism testifies to this special obligation to live a new and holy life.

We will work together to maintain a faithful gospel witness in our worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines. We will contribute cheerfully to the expenses of the church, the needs of our neighbors, and the spread of the gospel around the world.

If we leave this congregation, we will join another gospel-preaching church as soon as possible where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
