Q What is Membership at Grace Community Church?

Membership is a commitment to formally identify with and faithfully invest one’s life in the church through joyful participation, active service, and regular attendance. It signifies a willingness to submit to the authority of the elders and pastors (Hebrews 13:17), and it includes a pledge to love, encourage, teach, admonish, comfort, and exhort one another with a desire to see each one grow in godliness and Christian maturity. Finally, it represents a responsibility to invest one’s time, energies, and resources into the progress of the gospel. For more information about becoming a member of Grace Community Church, please visit our Membership Class page.

Q Is baptism required for membership at Grace Community Church?

Yes. Jesus commands that all believers are to be baptized, and to disobey this command displays a lack of submission to Christ and His church. Also, baptism is always closely connected with membership in the New Testament. Both go together, so only baptized believers are eligible to become members at Grace Church. For more answers to questions about baptism, please visit our Baptism FAQ page.

Q What is Fundamentals of the Faith?

This class is a 22-week course designed to teach the basic doctrines of the Bible. Though it is accessible for those who are new believers, it serves as a helpful review and a fresh encouragement for even the most seasoned saints. FOF classes are held throughout the year, and each new class starts based on sign-ups. If you are interested in signing up for FOF, or would just like more information, please stop by the patio table on Sunday morning or give us a call at 818-909-5721 during the week.
