The church is a unique spiritual organism designed by Christ, made up of all born-again believers in this present age (Ephesians 2:11-3:6).
The establishment and continuity of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:23, 27; 20:17, 28; Galatians 1:2; Philippians 1:1; 1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:1) and its members are of one spiritual Body and are directed to associate themselves together in local assemblies (1 Corinthians 11:18-20; Hebrews 10:25).
Persons desiring to unite with Grace Church on the Island by confession of personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation will be examined by the elders as to their basis for salvation and Christian experience. The prospective members will be required to assent to the church’s Statement of Faith, the Bylaws of the church, and their responsibilities to this local assembly in accordance with the principles of the Scriptures layed out in the Affirmation of Commitment.
Applicants who are temporary residents in this area and desire to retain full membership in their home church in another city may be admitted into this church fellowship in the same manner as prescribed above. Such individuals will have the same rights and privileges as any other individual united with this local church except that they may not serve on the governing boards of this body.
