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.
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.
