We’re so glad you’re interested in becoming a part of the East Union family!
At East Union membership is important. A commitment to Christ is not complete without a commitment to a local new testament church.
Requirements for membershipTo be a member at East Union, you have to have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ (learn more about salvation [create a hyperlink to the “plan of salvation” info below] and have been baptized by immersion with a church (learn more about baptism). That’s it. In addition, East Union strongly encourages people to attending the “Starting Place” class to learn about who we are and what we’re about. Explore East Union is a four week class and is presented on Sunday mornings at 10am by our Outreach Pastor, Dennis Holmes.
Attending Explore East Union does not make you a member, but it is designed to help you understand the mission and vision of the church as you pray through a decision to join our faith family. We believe God calls every Christian to commit to a local church body and we would LOVE to have you join our family here at East Union.
Ready for membershipYou can join East Union during the invitation of a worship service (at the end of the service you will be invited to come forward to be saved, be baptized, become a member, for prayer, and to make commitments to the Lord). There are three ways people can become a member: (1) by profession faith in Jesus Christ and requesting baptism, (2) by transferring church membership from another church of like faith and beliefs, or (3) by statement of salvation in Christ and baptism because a transfer of church member cannot be obtained.
Responsibilities of membersEvery member of East Union has the responsibility to be a public witness for Jesus Christ in this community and the world; to demonstrate commitment to the East Union by participating in our worship services and ministries; to offer skills, gifts, abilities, and time to serve the church and support the staff; and to prayerfully and financial support to the church, ministries, and missionaries.
