Join our family by becoming a member
We invite those who make Mairangi Bay Community Church their spiritual home to express their commitment by becoming formal members of our church. The process is quick and easy, so no need to stress about it.
If you see yourself as a committed follower of Jesus Christ, you might want to consider formal membership in our church. It is not required, but for many of our visitors, a huge part of the church is the community it provides – and having a solid church membership system set up only helps you make that feeling stronger. Becoming a member is not a sign or badge of achievement, but it does give you that feeling that you are part of something meaningful and special. Also, to vote on certain church decisions, you must be a member. There are certain leadership functions (like being on staff or in Eldership) that are only open to those who make this fundamental commitment.
We believe it is important to be committed to a local church community. This concept is well-grounded on biblical principles of mutual belonging, accountability, pastoral support and service.
How do I become a member of MBCC?
1. You request to become a member (perhaps to one of the Pastors or Elders, or by contacting the church office).
2. You will be given a membership application form to complete. Once completed, you return it to the office.
3. The Elders will pray about your application and might have an informal get together with you. The purpose is to get to know you better and to “hear” your heart.We suggest that new visitors wait at least three months before applying for membership. You might want to become familiar with us and the way we do things.
Requirements for membership
We do require that all members be followers of Jesus Christ, be water baptised and that they subscribe to our vision, values and statement of faith.
