At College Church, our vision is to see a world RENEWED, neighborhoods TRANSFORMED, and people brought to LIFE by the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We can only pursue that vision effectively if we each embrace it personally, allowing it to shape our individual values and decisions. If you are willing to embrace this vision as your own, and join us as we seek “know Christ and make Him known,” we invite you to prayerfully consider becoming a Member of College Church.

Our Members have made a public decision to engage with us in this work. If you have been enjoying College Church’s ministries for a while, maybe it is time to take the next step—to get out of the grandstands and become part of the team!

The Membership Process

Becoming a Member of College Church is a relatively simple process, consisting of three steps:

STEP 1: Attend a Membership Class. Membership classes run at least twice per year: in the fall and in the spring.

STEP 2: Attend a Worship Service where you are publicly welcomed into Membership. We want to celebrate your addition to our family!

STEP 3: Meet one-on-one with a Pastor or Elder. We want to work with you personally, so that you can experience the overwhelming joy of engaging in the transforming mission of Christ’s church.

Membership Requirements

All Members must agree on these three basic requirements:

1. You have a personal, active relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.

2. You have been baptized at some time in your life, or are willing to be baptized as soon as it becomes possible (We hold at least two baptism services every summer).

3. You agree with College Church’s Statement of Faith.

See you at the next Membership Class!
