MEMBERSHIP

At KMCC, our desire is to know Jesus and to make him known. 
We do this by sourcing our daily lives in the love of Jesus, gathering regularly to worship Jesus, living in unity as followers of Jesus, growing together in our walk with Jesus, applying the truth of the gospel of Jesus to our lives, and spreading the good news of Jesus to our community and around the world.

Jesus commissioned his disciples to make disciples of all nations.  In following Jesus’ command, KMCC takes responsibility for the growth, spiritual care, and equipping of its members for service to Christ.  We believe that the growth, care, and equipping of each member is accomplished by teaching, preaching, exhorting, encouraging, equipping, restoring, discipling, serving, loving, and giving to one another.

Interested in becoming a member of KMCC?

Simply send an email to the church office ([email protected]) and they will put you in contact with either Pastor Jason Knapp, our Director of Ministries Dallas Bednar, or one of our elders.

We will reach out to you so we can set up a time to meet and get to know you and your story a little better!

Then we will give you one of our membership booklets, and we just ask for a written testimony and for you to read and affirm our Statement of Faith.

Ephesians 2:19

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God...

 

Hebrews 10:24-25
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together … but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

God makes us a part of His larger family when we are born again.

Why Church Membership is Important

  • Membership affirms your commitment to a particular family of believers.  [Identity]
    • It’s good to commit to a church family for the purpose of loving and serving others. 
    • You will grow in your faith as you encourage, build-up, strengthen and pray for others in the body.
    • "We, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” – Rom 12:5.
  • Membership affirms that we are committed to one another. [Community]
    • It is spiritually healthy to be joined together with other followers of Jesus who are committed to loving and serving one another. 
    • Each will grow in their faith as they receive encouragement, strength, and prayer from others in the body.
    • "If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” 1 Cor 12:26.
  • Membership assures each one has a vote and a voice on church matters.  [Accountability]

  • The Church is not a place we go
  • The Church is not an activity we do
  • The Church of Jesus is who we are

What Membership Doesn’t Mean:

  • You are not required or expected to give a certain amount to the church. Your giving is between you and God.
  • There is no attendance requirement, although the Bible does instruct us to gather together regularly.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

Note: This is not the complete doctrinal statement of KMCC, but a condensed version of that statement to which each member of KMCC must agree.

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.  — Ephesians 4:3-6

  • One Body: We believe that everyone who receives the gift of salvation is adopted into God’s family, which is described in Scripture as the body of Jesus Christ.
  • One Spirit: We believe that God the Holy Spirit lives in every child of God; teaching, equipping and enabling him to become increasingly more like Jesus.
  • One Hope: We believe Jesus will return to take his church back to heaven with Him where we will spend eternity in the presence of God.
  • One Lord: We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to provide salvation for all mankind and that He was physically raised from the dead.
  • One Faith: We believe that because of sin, man faces eternal damnation and is unable to save himself, but that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received exclusively through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.
  • One Baptism: We believe that baptism is the child of God’s means of identification with Jesus and the family of God commanded by Jesus before He returned to Heaven.
  • One God and Father of All: We believe in on Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
