We believe membership in a local church is absolutely essential for your spiritual growth in God.
What Are The Requirements?
To be a member a person must:
- Profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior;
- Be baptized by immersion (here or in a previous church);
- Complete the New Member orientation requirements;
- And finally, upon completion of these requirements, be approved by our Trustees.
1. Profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
He’s the center and focus of the gospel. Simply put, we believe Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Everything we are and everything we have comes from Him and works together for His purpose.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but will have eternal life.
2. Be baptized by immersion
4. Attend Discover
Would you like to learn more about Avenue South, or perhaps even Jesus in general? Our Discover class is designed to help you gain a better understanding of who we are and what we believe as the body of Christ. While a part of our new member orientation, this class is designed for both those who are new to Jesus and those looking to connect with others who are on the same journey they are on. This class usually occurs once every 8-weeks or so.
5. Meet with a PLACE Coach
