Membership

 

What is church membership?

Church membership is about caring for one another and representing Jesus Christ together in the local church. The New Testament points us toward a clearly defined church membership for mutual building up, accountability, and encouragement in faith. See our membership process below.

 

Membership Process

1. Membership Class. Participate in a Membership Class where you will hear the Milwood Statement of Faith, membership covenant, and all that membership entails.

2. Elder Interview. Following the membership class is an interview with an Elder in order to get to know you and hear the account of how you came to saving faith as well as affirm the candidates submission to our membership covenant and statement of faith.

3. Elder Affirmation. Next the Elders will review your interview together at a regular Elder’s meeting. 

4. Congregational Affirmation. At a regular Church Family Meeting (Members Meeting) the Elder who conducted the interview will recommend the candidate to the church for membership. Upon church approval the candidate will be admitted to the church as a member.
