Become a Member


While Jesus was still with his disciples he unveiled his plan by saying, “. . . I will build my church.” We exist by the express will and purpose of Jesus. We are not a religious organization, a social club, or a human venture, but an active, dynamic body of people who love God and each other, and want to share that love with others. We are family. Families are curious things. They are full of imperfect people who belong to each other. That describes us: imperfect people who belong to each other in Jesus.
Your desire to become a part of our church family is a desire to join us in pursuit of God and furthering the advance of God’s Kingdom in this world. We invite you to think carefully about this commitment, and encourage you as you read through Bethel’s 
 documents to help you consider your membership at Bethel as an extension of your personal relationship with God.

Steps to becoming a member:

You must have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and have been baptized by immersion.
Complete the membership application and either give it to an usher, or turn it in to the church office. One of our Elders will contact you for an interview. During the interview he will discuss with you such things as: agreement in doctrine, your personal testimony about your salvation, baptism, and other facets of the Christian life. He will also discuss some of the mutual responsibilities of membership and give you an opportunity to ask questions about Bethel.
Upon recommendation of the Elders, the Pastor will present your name to the congregation to be voted on for membership.
You will be publicly welcomed into the membership at the conclusion of the next communion service.   You can print a membership application from your own computer by downloading the PDF from this page, or by picking up an application from the Information Table in the church foyer.
To get started, download the Membership Application below, fill it out and turn it into the church office. If you have any questions or would like more information, call us @ 517-787-8612 or email We would love to help.
