Creating a Conscious Community

Church Membership establishes our calling to one another to build each other up in love so that the entire church grows in spiritual maturity. Our model of church membership comes from the examples we see from churches in the New Testament, and it is expressed through our member covenant.

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” – Ephesians 4:16

The members of Forestdale Church aid in the governing of the church as they help the church uphold our Church Constitution, abide by our Statement of Faith, vote on our annual budget, and vote to receive future pastors. To become a member of Forestdale Church, one must be able to affirm the Member Covenant we make to one another, attend two membership classes, and meet with a pastor.
