Church Membership

As Christians, we are members of the Church, which is also called “God’s household” (Ephesians 2:19) and the “Body of Christ” (Ephesians 1:22-23). We are, through Scripture, implicitly called to commit and serve in a particular place within God’s household, which takes place in the context of a local church. At Veritas Church, our members are those who have publicly and voluntarily committed and submitted themselves to one another. For more information, see Article VI of the Veritas Church Constitution.

1. GET TO KNOW VERITAS CHURCH

EXPLORE OUR WEBSITE

Our website is intentionally informational, and you’ll learn a lot reading and listening to what you find there.

ATTEND A WORSHIP SERVICE

We currently worship together every Sunday at 10 am.  As well, refreshments are available at 9:30am to encourage a time of getting to know another.

JOIN CCB

Church Community Builder (CCB) is a personalized web site we use to encourage communication and community in our church.

ATTEND A COMMUNITY GROUP

Community groups meet in homes throughout the week for food, discipleship, and prayer.  This provides an accessible context for our people to know and care for one another.

ATTEND STUDIES AND EVENTS

This is another way to get to know our people. You can find a listing of our current studies, classes and events on our Church Calendar.

“INTRODUCTION TO VERITAS” CLASS (REQUIRED FOR MEMBERSHIP)

This class is the first point of connection for those considering Veritas as their church home.  In this class, we teach through the distinctions of Veritas.

2. REQUEST A MEMBERSHIP INTERVIEW WITH A PASTOR

Once a person believes they are ready to make the commitment of church membership, they should contact our deacon of membership to request a membership interview with a pastor.  During this interview, which lasts approximately 45 minutes, a candidate can expect to discuss church membership as well as their personal testimony of God’s converting work in their life.  As well, at the conclusion of the interview, a candidate may be asked to sign a document expressing their willingness to commit and become a member of the church.

3. ELDER RECOMMENDATION AND CONGREGATIONAL APPROVAL

At earliest convenience, the pastor will review the applicant’s testimony with the other pastors. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.  At this point, the congregation is given a couple of weeks to consider a membership candidate, pray for them, and express any concerns.  Once the congregation has approved, a person or persons will be formally accepted into affirmed church membership and publicly recognized at the next quarterly meeting of the members.
