Membership

Membership

We operate a membership class three times a year, around February, July and November.

The membership class is designed to intimate prospective parishioners with the following: vision and doctrine of the church, where we are coming from, where we are and where we are going, according to God’s plan.

Attendance at a membership class is prerequisite to joining a ministry team, getting baptised and getting married.

Each membership class lasts no more than 30 minutes and is followed by an informal lunch with the Senior Pastor and the Leadership team of the church. It also enables us to place names to faces and faces to names.

We do this in accordance with 1 Timothy 5:22 (AMP) which says…

1 Timothy 5:22 (AMP)

Do not hurry to lay hands on anyone [ordaining and approving someone for ministry or an office in the church, or in reinstating expelled offenders], and thereby share in the sins of others; keep yourself free from sin.

Baptism

Baptism

We run a Baptismal Class and Baptism by immersion once a year in September.

Romans 6:1- 4

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father , even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Prospective candidates for Baptism must be at least 16 years old on the day of Baptism and must have attended a Membership class prior to the scheduled date for Baptism.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion

As a church , we observe and partake in communion every first Sunday each month throughout the year.

Matthew 26:26-29

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”
27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.
28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

Marriage Ceremonies

Marriage Ceremonies

The church embraces and celebrates the sanctity of marriage and places great emphasis on it.

Genesis 2:18

And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

Marriage ceremonies are only available to parishioners who have completed the once-only membership class (see membership) of the church and have attended a mandatory pre-marital counselling program for a minimum of 6 months in accordance with the church’s marriage policy which is given to marrying couples for agreement of terms and conditions.

Marriage ceremonies take place at the church premises except indicated otherwise by the marrying couple.

Baby Dedications

Baby Dedications

This takes place on the first Sunday of the month by request. It is available only to parishioners who have completed the once-only membership class.

A Baby Dedication is a simple ceremony in which a believing parent or parents of a recently born child or an older child or children not previously dedicated, make a commitment to the Lord before the church, to submit a child to God’s will and to raise and train that child in the fear and admonition of the Lord in accordance with scriptures.

Deuteronomy 6:4-8

4 Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one [the only God]!
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being].
6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be [written] on your heart and mind.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children [impressing God’s precepts on their minds and penetrating their hearts with His truths] and shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road and when you lie down and when you get up.
8 And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand (forearm), and they shall be used as bands (frontals, frontlets) on your forehead.
