salvation and membership

We believe the Christian life requires a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It begins when we decide to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, then seek maturity as a believer by growing that new relationship. After we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we experience the peace that only he gives, and we begin to share his love with those around us. If you wish to learn more about a relationship with Jesus Christ, please check out these resources, or contact us by filling out the form below.

Membership into a Friends meeting requires the profession of a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and a desire to live out that relationship in a community of believers. Membership provides the opportunity of the individual to go deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ and to discover the deeper truths of the faith. “Membership is seen ‘primarily in terms of discipleship. It implies a sense of responsibility ... A sense of commitment ...’ and ‘a willingness to be used of God.'” Faith and Practice Part II, Chapter 1. 

If you wish to pursue membership in our meeting, you will need to do the following: 

  • Acknowledge a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ, revealed by your life and priorities
  • Complete a class, exploring our Christian faith, including our Quaker history and beliefs
  • After completion of the class, you will be accepted into membership by receiving the "right hand of fellowship" by our church family. This is an outward expression of our support to assist you in your spiritual growth. 
  • If you would like to know more about making a decision to follow Jesus Christ, or being a member please contact us using the email at the bottom of this page.
