How To Become A Member Of Cliff Temple
"You are members of God's very own family ... and you belong in God's household with every other Christian." — Ephesians 2:19
When anyone enters into relationship with God through Jesus Christ they are committing themselves to three things:
The first is to seek to love God with all of one's heart for the rest of one's life.
The second is to love his other family members in the community of a local church, being transformed together.
The third is to share His love, in the power of the Holy Spirit, with others who don't know him in the everyday places of life- where one lives, works and plays.
If you are looking for a place to walk with Jesus as a part of a loving community of faith, then we welcome you to join Cliff Temple.
Your desire for membership can be expressed at the conclusion of our Sunday service or a visit with one of our ministerial staff.
A person may be accepted for membership at Cliff Temple in one of the following ways:
For Salvation - those inviting Christ into their lives to forgive them of their sin and take control of their lives, and who are willing to be baptized as a symbol of their acceptance of Christ.
By Transfer of Membership - those who are already Christians and have a membership in another church where they have been baptized by immersion.
By Statement of Faith in Jesus Christ - those who come from churches in other Christian denominations, including those who have been previously baptized in another denomination either by immersion or sprinkling.
We recognize new members at the conclusion of each Sunday morning service, from the altar area or from their seat in the congregation.
If you would like to discuss this or any other decision, you may talk to one of our pastors by calling the church at (214)942-8601. Feel free to email questions or comments as well (firstname.lastname@example.org).
