How Do I Join?

To become a member of Cleburne Bible Church, we require that you go through Discovery Class.

Discovery Class

Discovery Class is about people’s stories. In this 3 session class, you will learn about the CBC story; CBC values and practices, places of service, how to connect to community, and the pathway to membership. In addition, we will get to know more about your story. The Lord is very interested in your journey, and so are we. I hope to see you soon in Discovery, which is held the first 3 Sundays of the month during the 9am service in room 101. See you there! Pastor Kevin

Membership Commitment

Though faith in Christ alone is the sole requirement for membership, all members as part of the Membership Commitment are expected to abstain from the practices of sin outlined in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Thus, the practice of these can be just cause for denial of membership to those applying.  All applications for membership are subject to Elder review and approval.  Baptism is not required for church membership, but is strongly encouraged if you have not been baptized as an act of obedience and as a testimony of your faith in Christ.

A membership commitment is a commitment on the part of the Elders to the membership and it is also a commitment on the part of the members of CBC to the body of believers. This commitment insures that both the leadership and the membership will fulfill their stewardship as members and ministers within the body to cause its spiritual growth, it’s holiness, the unity of the body, and the needs of the body being met.

As you become a member, we want you to know our commitment to you. We want you to feel loved and cared for. We also want you to know that as part of our commitment to you, we will love you enough so that if you should ever begin to stray in your Christian life and practice sin, we will seek to be faithful to follow through on the procedures in Matthew 18:15-17. The purpose of those procedures is to bring a change of heart on the part of those who are “caught” in the trap of the enemy.
