Becoming a member of North Ridge Community Church is specifically for those who:
- have made a personal decision to receive Christ as their Savior, and
- desire the formal connection to North Ridge as their local church.
Many "non-members" attend North Ridge on a weekly basis and they are still considered an important part of the North Ridge family.
So what's the purpose of becoming a member?
- Members can participate in the all-congregational votes. These kind of votes occur at least once a year, as needed.
- Becoming a member provides a sense of connection to the church family.
- Some volunteer positions require a person to become a member.
- No single event at North Ridge can help a person understand better this church's vision, history and purpose of existence.
How does one become a member?
A three hour membership class is offered two to three times per year (click here for class dates). It's broken up into three basic sections:
- A time to meet everyone and hear their stories on how they found North Ridge.
- One of the pastors will provide detailed information about our history, vision, purpose and one's personal responsibilities as an official member.
- A short discussion style interview with a church leader to determine if the candidate indeed has a personal relationship with Christ and is willing to represent North Ridge as an official member.
