Although the New Testament says little explicitly about "joining a church" in the modern sense of the idea, the New Testament speaks clearly about loving relationships and the highest standards of accountability in the Body of Christ. This was realized in the every day living of life in the major cities to the small villages of Palestine and the Greco-Roman world.
Becoming a member of Christ Church means you fully accept the sacred and wonderful responsibility of loving God, loving one another and incarnating the Gospel of Jesus as the Body of Christ. This includes the acceptance and cohesive embracing of our doctrinal statement as well as the active involvement in the fulfilling of our purposes at Christ Church. Therefore, we acknowledge that Christ Church is not for everyone.
