Officially commiting to join a local church can be an intimidating or confusing prospect, but it does not need to be. At minimum, going through the membership process is a wonderful opportunity for you to get to know us a bit better, and for us to get to know you. Additionally, those who have gone through this process and decided to commit to the community are eligible to explore and exercise more leadership, as they can do so in the context of better understanding our values, beliefs, vision and culture. We endeavor to make it a healthy process of mutual discernment that ultimately furthers your spiritual growth as well as the health of the broader community.
So how does someone officially become a member at Missio Dei Church?
The Membership Process
Becoming a members of MDC is not complicated. First, we ask that you attend two "classes:" MDC Vision and MDC Beliefs. These will help you to better understand some of our history, culture, where we are going, what our beliefs are, and generally what makes us distinct as a church.
Second, We also ask that you read over the What is the Gospel article and set up a time to meet with one of the pastors if you have any questions that you would like to discuss.
Third, we ask that you fill out an online membership questionnaire which gives us an opportunity for you to share your story with us. This questionnaire is reviewed by the pastors.
Fourth, and last, we will hold a membership Sunday when each new member will publicly affirm the membership covenant and we will install all of our new members together.
For more information or questions about what it means to join MDC please reach out to one of our pastor/elders!
