MEMBERSHIP

The members of Trinity Fellowship do not unite on the basis of external factors, but through our common commitment to Jesus Christ. Ever since the sins of Adam and Eve, and Cain and Abel, humans have tended toward alienation from each other, especially on the basis of race, tribe, ethnicity, sex, and social status, to say nothing of the elemental problems of self-centeredness and pride.

 

Jesus Christ, however, through his death has reconciled us to God and to each other. We rejoice that God has in Christ brought us from diverse backgrounds into his family, the new humanity. Here there is neither black nor white, there is neither poor nor rich, there is neither old nor young, for we are all one in Jesus Christ.

We are commanded in Scripture not to forsake the assembling together with other believers locally. We are to contribute to the needs of the saints and to show hospitality. We are to share each other's joys and bear each other's burdens. Thus, it is important to be committed as a member to a local expression of Christ’s Body.

If anyone wishes to become a member of Trinity Fellowship, the first step is to meet with one or more of the pastors. In this meeting, the individual's profession of faith in Christ is explored, as well as their church background. Once this is accomplished, two steps remain: the signing of the Trinity Fellowship Membership Covenant; and the public reading of the Personal Affirmation of Belonging in Trinity Fellowship before the congregation on a Sunday morning.​
