To begin with, please understand that we here at Grace Crossing do not equate joining our church with joining God’s people. Anyone who lives by faith in Jesus has already done that. So why join?
First, because we are a congregational church, our members decide how we “do” church. Members approve a yearly budget, determine who will serve as leaders, and decide the overall direction of the church. Every member gets a voice!
Also, only church members can serve as Deacons, the spiritual leaders of our church who minister to our congregation. Maybe you don’t see yourself as a leader now, but as God moves in you, you may find others will.
