Church Membership is essentially a commitment between a local church family and an individual Christian. At the heart of this mutual commitment is the desire on the part of the church to provide an atmosphere of spiritual growth; and an equally strong desire on the part of an individual to grow. The New Testament clearly teaches the importance of this mutual commitment. Membership is not just for the sake of the church. It also facilitates individual spiritual growth.
At the heart of membership are four Life-directions of a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Membership is a mutual commitment to the pursuit of these expressions of devotion to God. Here is a brief description of the Life-directions of a Christ-follower:
When people become members at Leduc Alliance Church, they are expressing their commitment to orientate their lives around these four Life-directions. Likewise, Leduc Alliance Church is committed to providing the atmosphere and support needed for this pursuit.
Our congregation makes the following commitment each time we receive new members into Leduc Alliance:We at Leduc Alliance promise to do all we can, with God's enabling, to provide an environment where pursuit of the four Life-directions are nurtured.
A candidate for membership is asked to make the following public commitment:As follower of Jesus Christ, I want to formally identify myself with Leduc Alliance Church. To that end, I desire to pursue Christ-like maturity within the four life-directions of faith, relationships, growth and stewardship. With God's help, and in partnership with the Leduc Alliance Church family, I commit myself to pursue the development of these four life-directions.
We believe that church membership is a natural step to take for any follower of Jesus Christ. We encourage anyone who has taken the step of believer's baptism to consider becoming a member. Membership is a great next step in your spiritual journey.
If you want to become a member of Leduc Alliance Church, the first thing you need to do is express your desire to one of the pastors. You will recieve information on the church's vision and beliefs, and greater detail in respect to what membership is all about.
You will be visited by an Elder and his wife for a casual interview. This is to help the church get better acquainted with you.
Following the interview, you will be recommended for membership then formally received into membership at a public worship service.
We invite you to make a commitment to your own spiritual growth by becoming a member of our church. If you have any questions about membership, please contact us.
