"...that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us ; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
When someone receives Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of their life, God adopts that person into His Family, which is His Universal Church. But not only are believers called into membership of Christ's Univeral Church, we also believe that the Bible clearly portrays a call toward active fellowship and membership within a distinct local church family as well.
"The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 16:19
Just as Asia and other 1st century areas consisted of many distinct localized churches, so too does our own nation and city today. We are just one of many local church families within the Phoenix Area, and we would love for you to consider following Jesus with us. You can find our membership process below if you are interested in learning more.
Our Membership Process:
STEP 1: EXPLORE Membership with Us
This first step simply involves getting acquainted with us and learning more about who we are, what we believe, and what our mission is as a church. This step can be taken by attending one of our GATHER Events, which can either be attended in person or online.
This event only happens four times a year. To get registered for our next GATHER Event, CLICK HERE.
STEP 2: COMMIT to Membership with Us
After attending our GATHER Event, you will then have the opportunity to commit to membership with us by filling out a membership commitment and application form. While the thought of "applying" for church membership might possibly sound a little odd or maybe even a little "country club-ish" in a way, we strongly believe that alignment with our core beliefs, mission, and leadership structure is an essential starting point for successful membership.
STEP 3: STRENGTHEN your Membership with Us
Once your membership is affirmed, then it's all about learning and growing alongside us within our church family. We believe that stronger family members equal a stronger and more united church family that will inevitably shine a brighter light for Jesus in the community and beyond. Our staff team and our other North Valley members are ready to walk beside you and help you take your next steps with us.
