Membership is about more than attending church meetings. Members commit to joining a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice. Our elders and leaders pledge to assist our covenant members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching. We hope that, as the Lord leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.
Members at Cornerstone Bible Church are those who have:
- Made a public profession of their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
- Been scripturally baptized
- Met with one of the elders for a membership interview
- Made a commitment to abide by the membership covenant of Cornerstone Bible Church
- Been received as members of the church by the elder body
We want you to make an informed decision about joining our church, so we provide a class covering what it means to be a member at Cornerstone Bible Church and our beliefs and distinctives.
In the book of Acts, churches were made up of believers committed to serving one another in the Lord. Our conviction is to follow this biblical model through membership.
One of the greatest spiritual blessings to a Christian comes from participation in the lives of other believers. In the church, members are served and serve as each one uses their unique spiritual gifting to build up the body. Vibrant body life includes the sharing of spiritual resources through proactive discipleship, faithful counseling, and sacrificial service. The result is growth into maturity by the power of the Spirit according to what each member supplies.
For those of you interested in being part of Cornerstone, we would encourage you to pray about joining Founders Baptist Church before we plant in February. As soon as the church plant launches, your membership will be transferred. It would be our hope and joy to have many of you be founding members of Cornerstone in February. If you are interested, please see Daniel Dorfsmith (firstname.lastname@example.org), Mark White (mark.white@foundersbaptist.
