What does becoming a member of CIBC mean?

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. … So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls
– Acts 2:38, 41

Being “added” to the Church of God, the Body of Christ is a work of God in the life of an individual. The Scripture’s call is for everyone to repent(turn from a life of sin, rebellion and living without God doing it our own way) and believe in (put your trust and hope in) what Jesus Christ has done by dying on your behalf and being raised as the living Lord. When a person repents and believes in Jesus they receive the Holy Spirit (God’s very presence and life). The Scriptures then make clear that a follower of Jesus is then to be baptized and is a member of the Church.

The Scriptures also make clear that every believer should be an accountable, involved and faithful member of a local church. Within this local church, followers of Jesus Gather regularly as worshippers, Grow together as disciples and Go together as missionaries locally and globally. With that being said CIBC is thankful for your interest in this local body of believers who are seeking to glorify God by making disciples locally and globally. 

Our membership process includes a membership class in which you will learn about CIBC (the biblical basis for church membership, CIBC history, and current ministries), a pastoral conversation confirming your understanding of the Gospel and that you have repented, believed and been baptized, and then Elder’s affirmation

For membership or to have any questions answered contact a pastor through the means listed below.
