Membership at Crossview

In 1 Corinthians 12, the Apostle Paul describes the church like a body made up of different parts. These parts are all important and have a function. By seeking membership at Crossview you are saying that you desire to be an active member of this body, both through your gifts and presence. Below are the three steps required for membership. If you have any questions or need help, please contact Community Life Pastor Aaron Thompson.

  1. Watch the Membership Videos (Part 1 - 20 minutes; Part 2 - 30 minutes; Part 3 - 5 minutes, plus a spiritual assessment)

  2. Fill out the Membership Application

  3. Attend a Membership Lunch (at this lunch you will meet the leadership of Crossview, have a chance to ask questions and get answers, receive help getting involved, and briefly share your faith story with a council member in a small group).

Part 1—Who we are

In this section we will cover:

  • Your church experience.

  • What do you think so far about Crossview Covenant Church?

  • Crossview’s history, passion and vision.

You will watch this clip midway through the first membership video when Pastor Brad instructs you to do so.

 

Part 2—What is the Evangelical Covenant Church?

In this section we will cover:

  • The kind of church we are. We are an apostolic, catholic, reformation and evangelical church.

  3. Attend a Membership Lunch (typically on a Sunday 12:00-1:30pm)

    • meet the leadership of Crossview,

    • have a chance to ask questions

    • receive help getting involved

    • get your picture taken

    • briefly share your faith story with a council member in a small group. After this your application will go to council for approval.

  4. Upon approval, you will attend the Sunday service where we welcome new members. You will stand in front of the congregation to answer a few simple “I do” questions. After that you will be welcomed and prayed over. Congratulations and welcome to the Crossview family!

 

We are thankful that you have taken this significant step of faith.

And now the excitement continues as you connect, grow, serve, give financially, and make Crossview your home church.

We are better together.
