Church Membership

After you have visited us awhile and would like to become a member of Dogwood and partner with us to glorify God then here are your next steps!

We recognize that all believers are part of the body of Christ and members of his family or church. We also recognize that the Bible teaches that each believer should identify as a member of a local gathering of believers or local church. Every local church has different membership requirements that are necessary to become a part of that particular group. Here at Dogwood we have three requirements for membership.

  • Be A Born Again Believer – One who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
  • Water Baptism — Each believer should follow the Lord in water baptism as a public statement of their faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. All candidates for membership must have been baptized at some point following their conversion. Baptism will be available for anyone who needs it.
  • Membership Class — We ask that all new members go through our “Introduction To Our Church Family” class. This is a 2 hour class taught on a Sunday afternoon. It explains all about Dogwood Church and attempts to answer any questions you may have concerning our ministry philosophy, structure, vision, doctrine, etc.

If you are interested in membership here at Dogwood just call the church office or fill out one of the yellow
“Response Cards” on Sunday morning.

Be sure to watch the bulletin for when the next “Introduction to Our Church Family” will be presented.
