Membership

At Cross Creek, we take seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others.

Membership process at Cross Creek

To be a member of a church is to make a public promise to live according to the Word and to support the work of the congregation. In the Bible this is called a covenant. Every believer is part of the church generally, but only by a public promise can someone be part of the local church as an organization. Membership means ministry and service, going from being a consumer to becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others. At Cross Creek, we take seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others.


Those ready to take the important step towards membership should enter into the membership process thoughtfully and prayerfully:


  1. ATTEND DISCOVER CROSS CREEK. In this class you will learn about the vision of Cross Creek, acquaint yourself with our ministries and opportunities, and ask questions you may have about the church. Check the EVENTS page for upcoming dates.
  2. COMPLETE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION. Complete the Membership Application Form below.
  3. SCHEDULE ELDER INTERVIEW. After you complete an application, we will contact you to schedule an elder interview. This will be an opportunity to sit down with one or two of our elders to share your story.
  4. AFFIRM THE MEMBERSHIP VOWS. We will schedule a time during a worship service for you to come forward and affirm the 5 membership vows. If you have not yet been baptized, your baptism will be scheduled for the same service.
