How to Become a member of PACC
We use the acronym “BELONG” to outline biblical membership of a church body. As we looked to define membership, we realized membership in our culture usually is defined by meeting certain criteria in order to qualify. Biblically however, membership in the local church is defined by our new identity in Christ; when we give our lives to Christ we automatically give ourselves to His Church too! It’s not something we add later, it’s something we buy into from day one. That said, our faith is largely defined by our participation in a church as we worship, serve, give and grow. Because we BELONG to Christ, we BELONG to the Body of Christ, the Church. So it’s not a question of IF we will be a member, rather, it’s a question of where are we going to participate. If you want to be part of PACC, familiarize yourself with our Mission and Vision.
Bringing in the Harvest
Matthew 9:35-38 This is what Jesus has called His Church to do. We are committed to being a community of believers who are on a MISSION – Connecting People to Jesus – sharing the Gospel with our world!
Engaged in Serving
Matthew 20:25-28 Jesus Himself demonstrated what it means to be a servant and we committed to following in His footsteps.
Leading in Generosity
2 Corinthians 8:1-8 Our desire it to be a community of people who give generously. Giving is an act of grace which all of us as members of the Church are commended to grow in. We are committed to giving with generosity, eagerness and joy!
Acts 2:42-47 Our vision at PACC is to be a church of disciples who are making disciples. In large part this happens in our Community Groups where we gather in each other’s homes week to week and learn and encourage each other in God’s Word.
Never Stop Praying
1 Thessalonians 5:16-21 We believe prayer changes things. “People content with what they can produce don’t pray.” In other words, if we want to see God size movement in our families, communities and world we must be a people of prayer. We are committed to praying together for God to move in BIG ways because we simply can’t do it on our own!
Hebrews 10:23-25 We are committed to gathering together corporately for times of worshiping Jesus and hearing His Word. We see the value of not only meeting in our homes, building relationships and making disciples, but we also value coming together as the larger body of Christ and celebrating what God is doing. We do this through our gatherings every Sunday morning.
