Gather. Grow. Go.


So you’re thinking you might like to become a part of this church, but you have some questions. Let’s see if we can’t answer them…

What do I have to do to become a member?

Are you ready for the enormous, backbreaking list of things you need to do? Don’t say we didn’t warn you, but here goes:

Contact the office and set up an appointment to meet with our Lead Pastor. It takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to get to know each other. Come with questions, and be ready to tell him about yourself.

That’s it. No classes, no tests, just a “Get to know you” with our Lead Pastor, and you can be a part of this incredible Peace family. In fact, the only thing missing from being even more incredible… is you!

What if I can’t meet in person?

If you live out of town (or out of state), or if you can’t meet in person for any reason at all, we can arrange a Zoom meeting.

Can I still be a member, even if I only worship online?

Absolutely! You wouldn’t even be the first! If you feel called to be a part of this family, we want you to follow that calling, and we will work with you to make it happen.

What do you expect of members?

First, we want you to feel welcome and a part of God’s family. From there, we expect you to follow God’s calling on your life. To GATHER (in person, online, or both), GROW (come as you are… but don’t stay that way!), and GO (live a life that shares the love of Jesus with those around you).

Anything else?

You will get out of church membership what you put into it. We aren’t going to track your attendance or audit your finances – but we do hope that as you grow in your relationship with God and His people, you will feel the desire to participate and grow in the following areas:

  • Loving God and loving my neighbors, serving others as I am able.

By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another (John 13:35).

  • Worshiping regularly at Peace, in person whenever possible or online.

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25).

  • Praying for members of my Peace family, including my pastors.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

  • Supporting the work of the ministry by giving faithfully, regularly, and generously, not only of my time and talents, but also of my treasures.

Each one must give as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7).

  • Supporting leadership by being informed and getting involved.

Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.  Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be no advantage to you (Heb. 13:17).

  • Refusing to gossip.

Do not let any unhelpful talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs (Ephesians 4:29).

  • Resolving conflict biblically.

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector (Matt. 18:15-17).

  • Receiving correction from the Word of God when I am shown to be in error according to the Bible.

Brothers, if someone is caught in sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently (Galatians 6:1).

  • Being a faithful witness by living out my faith as I share my life with others, knowing that we are Peace, wherever we are.

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15).
