Why should I join a church?
Scripture gives us many indications of church membership. For example, the church is referred to as a body (Rom. 12:4-5) and the flock of God (John 10:14-18). This tells us that the Christian life is meant to be lived out in community. Joining a church proves that you aren’t ashamed to be identified with Christ and His people (Mark 8:38), it places you under the protection of other Christians (Heb. 13:17), it demonstrates commitment and responsibility (Matt. 18:15-17), and it provides an opportunity to use and sharpen your gift for the profit of all (1 Cor. 12:4-11).
How do I join Forest Grove?
The elders (“overseers”) of the church receive professions of faith and transfers of membership into Forest Grove. The elders typically meet the third Monday of each month at 7pm. (Please confirm in the bulletin the date, time, and location.) We invite you to come before the Board of Elders to share your faith journey, your understanding of the gospel, and to tell us what you believe about the Triune God. Once you are received by the Board of Elders, you will be received at a church service. A church service reception provides a wonderful blessing for you to publicly declare your faith and to hear the congregation make promises to you.
In preparation for a profession of faith, we offer a Profession of Faith class. (Please see the bulletin for upcoming dates, times, and location.) A Profession of Faith class is a wonderful opportunity to ask questions to the pastor or an elder and to receive encouragement and blessing on a personal level.
In preparation for transfers of membership, we offer a New Members’ class. (Please see the bulletin for upcoming dates, times, and location.) A New Members’ class provides an opportunity to ask questions about the church in order to become more acquainted with the Forest Grove flock.
