What does it mean to be a member at Heritage?

At Heritage, we think being a member of the local church is very important. It’s about taking ownership. Becoming a member means that you are willing to identify yourself with us – that you want to join us in our mission to cultivate a community of Christ-followers.

Being a member of any community comes with certain responsibilities. We are a family that is intentional about spending time together, serving each other, and caring deeply for each other. Our common purpose motivates us to give of what we’ve been given so that others may benefit as we have.

Membership also has its privileges. While we encourage everyone attending our church to jump right in and begin serving others, many opportunities are only available to members. Likewise, major decisions that impact the direction of the church are made by our members because they have a great stake in our common future.

How do I become a member?

So you’re ready to pursue membership with us? We have made all of our membership materials available in one packet. You can pick these materials up at the church office or at the Welcome Center. The whole packet is also available for download here. You will also need to download and read the Heritage Constitution.

After completing and submitting the application forms, you will be invited to attend a membership class where you will have a chance to meet others pursuing membership. This also provides a way for us to get to know you better and for you to learn even more about our church and ask any questions you may have.

Once you have met the requirements and are ready to proceed, the membership committee will recommend that the church receive you as a member and this will be confirmed with a positive vote by the Heritage family.
