The Christian life was never meant to be lived out alone. We all need a church home where we can grow in Christ, build each other up, and be sent out to serve. When we join together as members of a Christian community, we’re able to combine our gifts and resources to have the greatest impact on reaching others with the message of Christ.

If you have placed your faith in Christ as your Lord and Savior, and are actively participating in any of our ministries, becoming a member might be the next step for you.

How do I become a Member at CEFC?

  1. Attend our Membership Class. You’ll learn about our vision and values, what we believe, and more. Even if you aren’t sure about becoming a member, attending this class is a great way to get to know who we are as a church family, and prepare you for taking that next step.

    The Membership Class is offered three times a year on the last Sunday in February, June, and October. Check out our upcoming events for more details.

  2. Complete a Membership Application. Once you’ve attended the class, you can apply for membership by completing our Membership Application.

  3. Visit with our Elders. This visit is an informal interview with two of our Elders, as well as a time for you to ask questions, share stories, and get to know each other.

  4. Presentation to The Church. After your visit with the Elders, your name is placed in our Sunday bulletin for two weeks. If no objection is expressed by the membership of the church, you will be formally received into membership during worship services.

What am I committing to?

As a Member, your commitment is to CEFC, its Constitution, By-Laws, and Policy and Philosophy Statements. Specifically, you are committing to the best of your ability and with the Spirit’s enabling to:

  1. Grow in Biblical truth and depth of relationship with Christ

  2. Participate in the life of the church

  3. Pray regularly for the work of the church

  4. Use your gifts to further the Lord’s work
