Become a Member

Become a Member

Attending church each week is not the same thing as being a member.

It’s more than calling Ada Bible your home church.

Church membership means we make a commitment to take care of each other. You commit to helping take care of the church and the church commits to helping take care of you.

Membership provides the church consistency and stability as it does God’s work. Members help make decisions on church-wide policies through voting at times throughout each year. Members serve as spiritual leaders (think small groups, deacons or elders). Becoming a member is your commitment to serve God and his people and to do so in coordination with our church.

To become a member, you must agree to align yourself with our beliefs. Download our We Believe document to learn more.

Ready to take a NEXT STEP to become a member?

Get Started

There are two parts to becoming a member:

  1. Attend a next steps class. Here you will become acquainted with our story—the past, present and future. You will learn more about what we believe, the process of becoming a member and other ways to get involved at Ada Bible.
  2. Fill out an application. It’s not rocket science and doesn’t ask for your first born. The application simply lets us get to know you better. If at any time you have questions, please email us!

  • How long is the NEXT STEPS class?

    The class is approximately one hour.

  • May I bring my children to a NEXT STEPS class?

    The NEXT STEPS class is open to all middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adults. To vote, members must be 18+ years old. Children’s ministry is available during normal weekend service times. If the NEXT STEPS class is outside of normal service times, childcare is not available.

  • When is the next NEXT STEPS class at my campus?

    We announce NEXT STEPS classes here. Registration begins three weeks prior to the class date.

  • Where can I find a copy of what Ada Bible believes?

    Download our We Believe document to learn more.

  • Why is an interview a part of the process?

    The interview is a casual, relaxed time for you to get to know a couple of our leaders (at least one elder) and for them to get to know you. They’ll ask you some questions based on what you wrote in your application. Most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

    A summary of your interview will be sent to the Elder Board for review. Following Board approval, you’ll receive a letter welcoming you as a new member of Ada Bible Church.
