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 US

EXPLORE OUR WEBSITE

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

ATTEND WORSHIP SERVICES

We currently worship together every Sunday at 10 am. Refreshments are available at 9:30 am as well to encourage getting to know one another better.

ATTEND OUR “WELCOME CLASS”

These meetings are held monthly, right after service, and we promise not to take more than 15 minutes of your time. It’s an opportunity for our leaders to introduce themselves to you and give a brief overview of our church.

GET TO KNOW US BETTER

Spend some time getting to know us better. Attend our Men’s Fellowship, Women’s Fellowship, or attend a nearby Community Group. Dates for these activities can be found on our Event Calendar.

JOIN CCB

Church Community Builder (CCB) is a personalized web site we use to encourage communication and community in our church. You can find more about CCB here.

TAKE OUR MEMBERSHIP CLASS (REQUIRED FOR MEMBERSHIP)

This online class is designed to be the first point of connection for those considering Veritas as their church home.  In this class, we teach through the theological and practical distinctions of Veritas Church.

2. MEET WITH A PASTOR

Once a person is ready to make the commitment of church membership, they should contact a pastor to schedule a membership meeting. During the meeting, 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.

3. CONGREGATIONAL AFFIRMATION

At earliest convenience, and if necessary, 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 two weeks to consider a membership candidate, pray for them, and express any concerns. Once the two weeks has passed, a person or persons will be formally accepted into affirmed church membership and publicly recognized at the next quarterly meeting of the members.
