Sterling Park Baptist Church takes the issue of membership seriously because the Bible takes it seriously. Every member of SPBC is not only a representative of the church, but also of Jesus Christ. Too often, when churches take membership casually, the result is their corporate witness and mission of spreading the gospel is greatly compromised.
Here are some resources that further explain the importance of church membership:
How to Become a Member
STEP 1 – MEMBERSHIP COURSE
If you are interested in pursuing membership with us, please contact us, either by email or phone, to sign up for our “Membership Class.” This class meets once every other month to go over our Statement of Faith and our Church Covenant. Completing the class does not obligate you to join our church. Anyone is welcome to take the class in order to get to know us better.
STEP 2 – MEMBERSHIP INTERVIEW
After attending a Membership Class, and you desire to pursue membership, an interview will be scheduled with one of our Elders. During this interview, you will have a chance to share your testimony and ask any questions you may have about Sterling Park Baptist Church.
STEP 3 – MEMBERSHIP AFFIRMATION
After finishing the membership interview, you will be presented to the congregation during a members’ meeting. A summary of your testimony will be shared and the church will vote to recognize you as a new member.
