Joining the APC

Church membership is integral to life in the church. The Letter to the Ephesians tells us that Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her in order to sanctify her and to present her to himself in splendour (Ephesians 5:25-27). Since we are called into the body of Christ it is right for his people, in response to Christ’s love, to become members of his church and commit to the work of a local congregation. Church membership is an important witness to the Lord, to the church and also to the world.

There are two ways to become a member of an APC church. If you are not already a member of a church you may join by profession of faith. If you are a member in good standing of another church and wish to join an APC congregation you may do so by certificate of transfer. Your local APC minister will be able to provide you with more details.
