Church Membership

Learn more about church membership at Emmaus!

Why does Church Membership matter?

We answer this question directly in the Membership Information Class offered on the 2nd Sunday of each month.


The short answer is:

(1) church membership is more about what you can give than what you get

(2) church membership is a pathway to live out what the Bible teaches about following Jesus. 

Do I have to be re-baptized to join Emmaus?

If you were baptized by immersion in response to experiencing God’s salvation through faith in Jesus, we do not require you to be re-baptized. If you have not been baptized or if you have questions about your previous baptism, we would be honored to talk with you about that.

Can I transfer membership from another church?

Yes. After you attend the Emmaus Membership Information Class and meet with a Pastor/Church Leader, we will contact your previous church to “transfer your church letter” to Emmaus. 

*If you are seeking God’s direction about whether to leave your current church & join another church, we hope you’ll take a look at the resource, “Church Transfer and Church Growth” linked below.

Optional “Pre-Step”

Discover Emmaus is offered 5-6 times per year as a no-obligation opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the church. Discover Emmaus is not required for church membership, but is a great starting point.
