STARTING POINT

A Joyful Commitment to God's People

WHAT IS CHURCH MEMBERSHIP?

Being a member at All Church rests on one thing: you understand and believe the gospel.

With membership comes the joyful call to play an active role in the church. Church membership is not like joining a club or an organization. Membership is not about being on a list to receive something from the church. Membership is about committing your life to Jesus and identifying yourself with a local gathering of believers.  By doing this, we have ownership and partnership with the other members of All Church to faithfully work out the great commission in our city as we pursue Jesus alongside one another. 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

If you haven't already read our Statement of Faith, please look it over.

We'll cover it at Starting Point.
