In the Presbyterian Church persons may enter into active church membership in the following ways:

    Profession of Faith:

  • When persons baptized as infants reach an age when they are ready to make public their profession of faith and accept their responsibility in the life of the church
  • Through Baptism, when persons who have not been baptized desire to profess their faith in Christ and be incorporated in the life of the church as believers.
    Certificate of Transfer:

  • Persons who are members of other Christian churches may be received by the session upon receipt of a certificate of transfer from that church.
    Reaffirmation of Faith:

  • Sometimes a person who made a profession of Faith and became a member of a particular church is not able to secure a certificate of transfer or other evidence of church membership. For those persons, we will receive them by reaffirmation of faith.


What We Expect of a Faithful Member:

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege. It is also a commitment

to participate in Christ’s mission. A faithful member bears witness to God’s love

and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church.

Such involvement includes:

  • proclaiming the good news in word and deed,
  • taking part in the common life and worship of a congregation,
  • lifting one another up in prayer, mutual concern, and active support,
  • studying Scripture and the issues of Christian faith and life,
  • supporting the ministry of the church through the giving of money, time, and
  • talents,
  • demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church,
  • responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others,
  • living responsibly in the personal, family, vocational, political, cultural, and social
  • relationships of life,
  • working in the world for peace, justice, freedom, and human fulfillment,
  • participating in the governing responsibilities of the church, and
  • reviewing and evaluating regularly the integrity of one’s membership, and considering
  • ways in which one’s participation in the worship and service of the
  • church may be increased and made more meaningful.
