What Membership is (and what it is not): Becoming a member means becoming a vital part of a church family. A healthy family has common values and beliefs and members work together toward common goals. Word of Life Christian Center is a family church. Family members provide support, encouragement and accountability for one another. This is God's design for each of our lives. He wants us to grow in His grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3:18) Church membership does not provide personal salvation. Salvation is secured only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; by faith is His death and resurrection. (Romans 10:9-10) Membership is not a requirement to attend regular or special services, Life Groups, prayer meetings or special church events.
We ask everyone who desires to become a member of Word of Life Christian Center to attend our Foundations for Faith Membership Class. However, you must be at least in the 8th grade. Attending this eight week course will give you the opportunity to learn what we believe and why based on Bible truths. The classes are also taught by members of our pastoral and ministerial staff giving you the chance to meet them in a more intimate environment. Membership classes are offered three times a year; fall, winter and spring. Classes are held on Wednesdays at 7pm and by video on Saturdays at 10 am. Check out our church bulletin for upcoming classes.
There are a variety of areas available to serve in at Word of Life Christian Center. In the eighth week of membership class a video presentation is shown of the many different ministry departments available for service. After the video, department leaders will be available to answer any questions and assist you in deciding which area would be the best for you to get involved with. Once you have received the Membership Class Certificate of Completion, you can submit an application for the ministries you would like to serve in.
