Becoming a Member

Local church membership is an extra-Biblical thing (That means it is not in the Bible, but not necessarily unbiblical). So, we have little guidance from Scripture on it. We do understand being a member of the body of Christ does include belief (John 3:16), repentance (Changing one’s mind to have Christ as Savior and Lord (Acts 2:38), confession (That you want Jesus as Savior and Lord – Romans 10:9-10), Biblical immersion (Biblical baptism – Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-7), leading the Christian life by the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit (James 1:22; 2:24; John 14:23-24; 15:8-10; Romans 8:5-8).

Legally, we are required to report membership to various organizations (e.g., licensing companies we use for our worship music, insurance companies, etc.). Additionally, it helps us hold to standards which keep our programs excellent. For instance, we will not allow teachers to teach our children on a regular basis unless they have agreed to the overall principles and standards of Paramount Christian Church (PCC) as explained in the Introduction Class, and go through some kind of training on our policies which are in place for the safety and well-being of our children. Additionally, all volunteers are required to fill out a basic volunteer application, updated annually, to facilitate background checks. Official membership is two-way. When a person or family makes a commitment to us, we realize we have a responsibility with them – to help them in their spiritual journey. Official membership is an agreement of mutual trust and respect. We do not take this for granted, and we realize we will be held accountable for how we handle the people God has put into our care.

We have designed special classes for newcomers and all members of PCC. They are in a series called “Winning Strategy.” They are broken down into 4 sequential segments, specifically to carry each person along to a greater level of involvement as a person spiritually develops. The classes include: Introduction to PCC, Involvement with PCC, Leadership, and Discipleship/Evangelism. It will help people learn more about PCC. In this class people are offered an opportunity to make a commitment to place an official membership at PCC.
