Why does membership matter?

Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to take a class to even become a member? Why do I have to sign anything? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.

It’s true. We take membership seriously and with a lot of gravity. Committing yourself to a body of believers is weighty, but it’s also wonderful. When covenant members join, they commit to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a biblical degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters in the family of Christ. Our staff and leaders also pledge to assist our covenant members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.


As you think about making a decision to join the church, we offer a class called Unite that covers what it means to be a covenant member, our mission, basic beliefs and some history of The Exchange. We want you to know exactly what it means to join and what is required when you do before asking you to make a decision.
