Membership

be fully known and fully loved in our church family

Your membership means more than signing a piece of paper.

 

Becoming a member of Stonebriar Community Church expresses your commitment to this spiritual family—a family that worships together, grows in faith together, and serves one another. We want to help you solidify your faith and find your place to belong.

 

To become a member and ministry partner with Stonebriar Community Church, one must trust in Christ for salvation, be at least 18 years of age, and complete our Membership Class, which is held over three consecutive Sunday mornings, and covers our church’s beliefs and ministries.

 

In our Membership Class, we review Stonebriar’s history, provide an overview of our ministry values and our Statement of Faith, and present opportunities for connecting to small groups and areas of service. If you are interested in membership, please choose the three-week class you wish to attend.

 

Registration is required for Membership Classes. You can register through your Stonebriar portal account. Creating your portal access is a one-time setup and is used for most events around our church.

The Meaning of Membership

 

“For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” ~Romans 12:4-5

 

Church membership is not a means of salvation. Becoming a member of Stonebriar or any other church does not assure anyone of eternal life in Heaven. Church membership is also not a requirement for worshiping or serving at Stonebriar, and it is not a command found in the Bible. The Bible does tell believers, however, to meet regularly with a group of Christians who love, serve, and encourage one another (see Ephesians 4:16, I Timothy 3:15, and Romans 12:4-5).

 

Some churches link church membership and baptism, but that is not the case at Stonebriar. If you would like to learn more about baptism, we offer quarterly baptism classes for all ages.
