You do not need to officially join a church to attend or be part of a church. However, membership is a meaningful way to indicate your commitment to this particular group of people who, together, strive to be the body of Christ in Corvallis. We are all different, and we all do not believe in the same way, but we all have responded positively to Christ’s invitation to “follow me.”
The disciples did not know much about the way of Christ when they first began to follow and so we do not have an extended class required for membership. We begin with your “Yes” and then we learn together along the way. That is why we try to frequently offer a class on the reformed faith, and other aspects of our faith and church, for all those interested.
There are no requirements or dues for membership. However, a member is asked to commit, as best as they can to the ministry of the church with their time, talents, and/or financial support. Members also enjoy the privilege of voting in elections of officers and other congregational votes. You also must be a member to be nominated as an officer.
