Membership Process

We believe local church membership is a very important and necessary step for every follower of Christ. Partnering with a local church should not be taken lightly but should be entered into prayerfully, carefully, and joyfully. With that in mind, our elders deem it necessary to give each prospective member a thorough introduction to Risen King Church. In order for you to become a member of Risen King, you must complete the following steps:

1. Intro Class Sessions

Session 4: Ecclesiology: Church Membership

Sessions 5–6: Theological Distinctives (offered in-person only)

Session 7: Baptism (offered in-person only)

2. Membership Commitment Form

This is a form to be completed by each person joining and submitted to the elders. It contains questions that will help our elders serve you. You can access the form online by clicking here. Please complete the form at your earliest convenience.

3. Elder Interview

Once you submit the Commitment Form, one of the elders will contact you to schedule an interview. The purpose of this interview is to allow the elders to get to know you as a prospective member and also to allow you to get to know our elders. This time is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the church and for our elders to pray for you.

4. Covenant Affirmation

During a Sunday morning Gathering, all prospective members will be presented to the congregation to be welcomed into membership. At this time, all new and current members publicly affirm our Risen King Church Covenant together.
