How To Join
We would love for you to join the Edgewood family! There are three easy steps to becoming a member.
You may let us know of your desire to join in a couple different ways. You may contact the pastor to let him know of your decision, or you may respond during the ministry time at the end of one of our worship services. When you come forward, the pastor will greet you and introduce you to one of our deacons who will talk to you one-on-one about your decision. This usually takes only a few minutes. At this point, you will become a candidate for membership.
There are several ways you may choose to begin the membership process:
- By accepting Christ as your Savior (To find out how to do this, click here.)
- By being baptized by immersion (For details on baptism, click here.)
- By requesting a transfer of your membership letter from a church with a similar belief system
- By a statement of faith in Christ as your Savior (stating that you have previously accepted Christ as your Savior and been baptized by immersion)
If you have children in our nursery or children’s programs, a teacher or volunteer will stay with them until you pick them up.
We believe baptism is the first act of obedience after receiving Christ as your Lord and Savior. If you have never been baptized (by immersion) as a believer, you will need to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.
All adult candidates for membership are encouraged to complete Church Membership 101. In this class, Pastor David will explain what it means to be a member of Edgewood, including the privileges and responsibilities of membership.
