What is membership?
At Wellsboro Bible Church we believe that membership matters.
Membership is the local church’s way of formally identifying those who know and believe the gospel. It is a mutual commitment between the elders and the congregation for accountability and spiritual growth. Wellsboro Bible Church is an elder-led, congregational affirmed church.
How does membership work?
Membership is a joint commitment between an individual and the church and the church to the individual
The individual participates in the life and doctrine of the the church, serving it with his/her own gifts, and the church promises to aid, support, train, equip and hold the individual to the truth of the gospel and the care of Jesus. Membership fulfills the Bible’s teaching that believers be “added” to a local church (Acts 2:41).
How do I become a member?
1. Take the Membership Matters class
Membership Matters is normally a weekend class that happens four times a year where we explore WBC’s statement of faith and covenant, learn about our history, and what membership looks like at WBC. It begins Friday evening from 6-8:30 and continues on Saturday morning from 9-11:30. Child care is provided upon request.
Register for the next Membership Matters class: March 19-20, 2021
2. Contact an elder for an  Interview
After learning more about WBC at Connecting Point you’ll need to fill out this electronic membership application and connect with an elder for an interview. Generally Mike White and Andy Sayre handle most of these. There is no need to be intimidated by the interview. It’s not a theological exam (plus it often happens over dessert)! The elders are thrilled to get to know you more and learn about how you came to know Jesus. From there, an elder will present you at the next member meeting for congregational approval.
