Membership

Membership Matters!

Membership is the crucial to the life of a local church body. One of our core commitments as a church is to be a Covenantal Community. This means that we are a family of faith fully committed to one another.  We express that commitment through mutual submission to a church covenant as we live this Christian Life together. We believe that the Bible calls every believer to membership in a local for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our three-step process to become a member of HighView Church.

1. Membership  Class

All prospective members must attend our Membership Matters class. In this class we cover...
The Membership Class is offered periodically through the year on Sunday afternoons. For more information on our upcoming classes visit our events page. Upon completion, those who attended the class are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process.

2. Membership Interview

In a 1 hour meeting, the member candidate meets with an elder of HighView Church to provide basic information and share God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the church covenant, and the application would go to the elders. At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the elder will review the applicant’s testimony with the other elders. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.

3. Congregational Affirmation

 During our quarterly members meetings, a pastor will briefly introduce the member candidates. Questions are fielded, a vote is taken, and with a majority secured, candidates are admitted into membership.
