Church membership is a covenant between an individual and a local community of believers to be on mission together. Church membership is more than simply joining an organization. It's uniting with other believers to share in what the Lord is doing through the local church.
Attend Connect Class. Connect Class is taught in two parts, usually on the second and third Sunday of each month.
Meet with an elder. After you attend Connect Class, you will be assigned to one of our elders for a follow-up meeting. You should think of this more as a conversation and less like an interview. We want to hear your story, how you came to know the Lord, how you may fit into the life and ministry of NRBC, and answer any questions you may have about the church.
Be presented to the congregation for membership. If you have never been baptized as a believer, then we will arrange for baptism on a Sunday morning and present you to the congregation that day. For those who have been baptized, you will be presented to the church at the end of a service by the elder you meet with in Step 2.
