Becoming a member is an important way to solidify your commitment to the local body of Christ, and brings benefits to both you and the entire church. At SBC, the process to membership involves three simple steps:
STEP 1: Attend the Membership Class
We offer one-hour Membership classes periodically throughout the year. In the class, you will learn about the beliefs of SBC, the purpose of membership, and the expectations and responsibilities of members as well as our church’s leadership. Please choose a class date below and sign up before attending.
STEP 2: Complete a Membership Application
After attending the class, candidates who are interested in membership must submit an application (provided at the class). The application asks about your faith testimony, your involvement at SBC, and your agreement with the Scottsdale Bible Statement of Faith.
STEP 3: Interview with a Pastor or Elder
After your application is received, you will meet one-on-one with an SBC pastor or elder for 30-45 minutes. Our goal is to get to know your journey of faith better and to discuss next steps of involvement such as connecting in a group, serving, or being baptized. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions about Scottsdale Bible that may not have been covered in our membership class. After this interview, a letter of membership will be mailed to you.
