At Village, we believe in church membership. Essentially it entails identifying the local family as your spiritual home, within which you want to be taught, grow, encourage and help others to grow as you exercise your spiritual gifts, be accountable, and so on. But we also believe that it is important that anyone who joins us knows what they are joining. Because of this, we regularly run a new members class where we, in an informal setting, speak about our beliefs, vision and mission of the church. This gives the opportunity for those interested in joining us the opportunity to meet some of the leaders, and ask questions without being obligated to join.
