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, live in the community or within driving distance (thus available to partner with us in onsite ministry), 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.
The Meaning of Membership
“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.” —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.
