Membership at EPC

The church receives persons into active membership by:

Faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and acceptance of his Lordship in all of life. Baptism and a public profession of faith in Jesus as Lord are the visible signs of entrance into the active membership of the church. (G-5.0101)

A faithful member accepts Christ’s call to be involved responsibly in the ministry of his Church. Such involvement includes:

  • Proclaiming the good news (gospel of Jesus Christ)
  • Taking part in the common life and worship of the church
  • Praying and studying Scripture and the faith of the Christian Church
  • Supporting the work of the church through the giving of money, time, and talents
  • Participating in the governing responsibilities of the church
  • Demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church
  • Responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others
  • Living responsibly in the personal, family, vocational, political, cultural, and social relationships of life
  • Working in the world for peace, justice, freedom and joy

We invite you to prayerfully consider becoming a member of our congregation, as together, through faith, we seek to follow the Great Commission of Jesus Christ: “Go and make disciples of all nations and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:28).
