At Crosspoint, we practice what is called “church membership.” The Bible shows that membership in a local church is the normal expectation for a healthy Christian, and is much more than simply attending a worship service — being a member of a church is a commitment to watch out and care for other members, and be watched over and cared for by other members.
The process to become a member is by taking a Membership Class, then an informal meeting with an Elder to ask questions and share your spiritual testimony and life story, and finally be affirmed by the church in a Members Meeting.
Our Membership Classes occur throughout the year, in small group settings. During this casual get-together, you'll get a big overview of Crosspoint Church (our doctrine, values, and practices), and a chance to meet other new people and church leaders.
Why Membership? Christians are called to assemble together regularly to build one another up in Christ (Hebrews 10:23-25), to encourage one another regularly (Hebrews 3:12-14), to work together to get the Gospel to lost people around the world (Matthew 28:18-20), to protect each other from sin (James 5:19-20), to guard the church from hypocrisy (Matthew 18:15-18), and to be built up by the regular teaching of God’s Word through gifted teachers (Hebrews 13:17).
We are thrilled that you are considering Crosspoint Church as your future church home!
