WHAT TO EXPECT
What is membership at Liberty?
An important aspect of a strong family is commitment: loving and supporting each other, working together, and identifying with family values and beliefs. Belonging to a church family is very similar and involves membership. Membership is also a commitment, expressing an individual's identification, participation, and partnership with the local church. It is a public statement of allegiance, signifying agreement with what the church believes and values.
When you have finished your class for membership, you have the option of filling out a membership application and meeting with an elder for a prospective member interview. After completing that step, you will then be given the opportunity to share your testimony with a small group of your choice from Liberty.
Upon completing the membership process, you will be presented to the congregation as a new member. After the service, members from our congregation will have the opportunity to say a word of welcome and shake your hand.
What do I have to do to become a member?
You attend the membership class, meet with an elder, and give your testimony in a small group.
Is Liberty a part of any denomination?
Liberty Bible Church is a part of the Evangelical Free Church of America. The EFCA is an association of about 1,300 autonomous churches united by a mutual commitment to serve the Lord Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in obedience to the Word of God. The term "Evangelical" refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the gospel and to the authority of the Scripture as the only safe and sufficient guide to faith and practice. The term "Free" refers to the autonomy of local churches, as well as to a congregational form of government. Evangelical Free Churches depend upon the active participation of lay people in their decisions and ministries.
What are my responsibilities?
The responsibilities of a member are to give your time, talent, and treasure to the expansion of this ministry.
What are my benefits as a member?
As a member, you will be part of the spiritual shepherding of the church leaders. As a member, you can also vote in any congregational meeting and may serve on one of our elected ministry teams.
Why do I have to give my testimony?
We believe that it is important to be able to give a verbal testimony of your faith journey and conversion. We understand that public speaking can be intimidating and we will help you find a group where you are comfortable sharing.
