We don’t talk too often about membership at VCL, but it is a significant part of church life. Membership is a reflection of one’s commitment to the church and is an encouragement to the other believers in the church. Essentially, to become a member at VCL a person must make a clear profession of faith in Christ and affirm our Statement of Faith.
Our bylaws require anyone applying for member- ship to “receive instruction in the doctrine, by-laws, history and philosophy of ministry of VCL and the Evangelical Free Church of America.” Our next Explorers’ Class will be at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning, Jan. 22 and 29, in my office. Not only do we cover the topics required, but it is a time to get better acquainted and to answer questions you might have. If you haven’t taken this important step, I hope you’ll join us.
