Although anyone is welcome to participate in the life of this congregation without officially becoming a member, we believe it to be important for every Christian to make a commitment to some part of the Body of Christ. Such a commitment is certainly not intended as a replacement of one’s commitment to Jesus, but rather as an expression of the commitment.
If the Lord calls you to become part of this fellowship, you can become a baptized member by completing a New Member Class and participating in a New Member Covenant Service. These brief services of commitment are held periodically throughout the year during the regular Sunday worship service.
In addition, should you desire to be confirmed by a bishop of The Charismatic Episcopal Church, or having been confirmed by a bishop in another communion desire to be received into this part of the Body of Christ as a confirmed member, there are Confirmation Classes for adults (minimum 17 years of age) scheduled each year.
The purposes of Confirmation:
1).To make an adult profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord in the presence of the congregation and a bishop, representing the apostolic ministry of the larger Body of Christ.
2).If not previously experienced, to receive the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.
3).To receive from the bishop his apostolic blessing of the strengthening work of the Holy Spirit for mission and ministry.
–The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12
