BECOMING A MEMBER
 
Why Join a Church?
When we become followers of Christ,
God makes us part of his larger family.
As a family member, you receive privileges:
 fellowship, inspiring worship, and spiritual growth.
God also asks you to be responsible:
by giving, serving, and participating in the 
life of a local church as well.
 
 
How Do I Become a Member?
1. Meet with the Pastor to discuss your desire
to join by baptism or transfer of membership.
2. Understand and accept the Membership Covenant(below)
3. Be presented for membership during the Sunday morning
Worship Service.
 
 
What does it mean to be a member of Mount Moriah?
We have professed faith in Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. 
We have demonstrated this faith through baptism. 
We share a common dedication to Christ and His kingdom.
We are committed to the precepts set forth in our Affirmation of Faith and Membership Covenant.
