How To Become a Member of Highland Park Church
by Ed Vasicek
Becoming a member of Highland Park Church is not complicated, but it is significant. By becoming a member, you choose to identify our congregation as your church; you place yourself under the care of our elders and pastor, and you can vote on matters brought before the congregation. Membership makes the task of the elders easier: it helps us identify those who intend to settle into the church from those who are undecided or wish merely to attend.
To become a member, we expect that:
Then you need to share your understanding of salvation with any elder. (The pastor is also considered an elder. For a list of elders, see the bulletin board in the foyer or page three of our phone directory.) If the elder is satisfied with your testimony and if you don't have any major problems with our constitution, he may then recommend you to our elders' board for membership. It's that simple.
We do not require our members to meet certain quotas for contributions.
If your name is on the membership roll of another church, please put a note in the pastor's box. We can send them a letter informing them of the change in membership, if you so desire. We do not transfer memberships because we want to be sure our members profess to be saved by faith in Jesus Christ.
Let me encourage you to officially become a member if you feel God wants you here at Highland Park Church.
