Membership Has Its Privileges

At Eastridge, we believe that church membership is a meaningful step for followers of Jesus who wish to make official their commitment to a local church family.

Becoming a member of Eastridge Baptist means:

  • You are joining together with other believers for mutual fellowship and encouragement (Hebrews 10:19-25)
  • You will have more opportunities to use your spiritual gifts in serving the Body of Christ (1 Peter 4:12). Eastridge requires membership for certain areas of service.
  • You will be able to vote and express your views on important matters regarding the policies and direction of Eastridge
  • You are expressing your commitment to a local church. It is a public promise and a commitment to another party - in this case, a local body of believers.

Our Requirements:

  • Salvation: You must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
  • Baptism: We believe that baptism is a public testimony of an individual's commitment to Jesus Christ. Baptism is a clear step of obedience to Christ.
  • Convictions: We also believe in common convictions regarding the Christian faith and life to be important in maintaining church unity. Therefore, Eastridge also requires that its members agree with our Statement of Faith and our Membership Covenant.

Next Steps:

  1. Take the Eastridge 101 class: This is required for all those seeking membership so they can become familiar with the vision, beliefs, and ministries of Eastridge. These classes are held three to four times a year. Please contact the church office for the date of the next scheduled class.
  2. Complete the Membership Application and Eastridge Membership Covenant and return them to one of the pastors or the church office. These application documents are available online (see below) or in the church office.
  3. Complete an Interview: One of our elders will contact you and arrange an informal meeting to discuss your desire to be a member.
