The early church stands as an example of the importance of committing to the body of Christ in a meaningful way. When individuals repented and professed their faith, they were baptized in water and added to the church, devoting themselves in ways that helped them to serve, grow, and eventually lead.
Membership at Poplar Creek Church follows this pattern. Whether you choose to become members of this congregation or of another, we encourage you to seek out a place where you can make a commitment that will not only help you grow in your relationship with Christ, but also provide you with the opportunity to help others do the same.
If you are interested in becoming a member of Poplar Creek Church, simply check out the class times and register for the next session that fits into your schedule. If there is no time that works for you, please let us know so that other arrangements can be made.
