When you are born again, you become a member of the family of God. It is important for each member of this family to grow with others. It is important to identify yourself with other believers in the local church. We encourage you to consider joining this community of believers. Membership is an active, participatory role at Family Bible Church.
To provide you with a clear picture of membership at Family Bible Church, we offer a membership class. This membership class is filled with information to help you learn more about Family Bible Church. You’ll join others and gain a deeper understanding about the church. You will hear about the church’s history … and where it’s heading. You’ll discover what we believe and why we do what we do. You’ll get all of the “inside info” you’re looking for from one of the pastors who teach the class.
If you are ready to join the community and all of the excitement that is taking place, then membership at Family Bible Church is for you.
