Paul tells in Ephesians 2:19: “You are a member of God’s very own family and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” We desire you to become a member because…

  • The church is a family.
  • God expects you to be committed to a local church family.
  • A Christian without a church family is an orphan.
  • We grow (mature) in fellowship with a church family.

All are welcome to attend, participate and serve in many capacities. Members are eligible to…

  • Vote at Quarterly Business Meetings.
  • Serve as small group leaders.
  • Serve on Leadership Team, Deacons, or Finance Committee.


  • Profess your faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord.
  • Be baptized as a believer by immersion. Click HERE for FAQ about baptism.
  • Attend an Orientation Class where you will learn about Emmanuel’s mission and vision, what we believe, how we are structured, and how to get involved. It is also a good opportunity to ask our staff any questions you may have about Emmanuel.
  • If, after attending an Orientation Class, you would like to become a member, a Deacon will meet with you to share their salvation testimonies and hear your testimony, to assist you in finding a place of service within the church, and to answer any questions you may have.
  • Share your salvation testimony with a recognized Emmanuel small group.
  • Members from churches of the same faith and order may be received by letters of recommendation from their respective churches.
  • After completion of the above, you will become a member of Emmanuel.

If you have questions about membership, please contact Terry Candler.
