We want every member of McLean Bible Church to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The family of God is one body that spans every generation, ethnic background and life experience. MBC welcomes everyone – from mature disciples looking to be challenged in Bible-based community, to those with no previous religious affiliation.
Becoming a member demonstrates your commitment to Christ and to this church. If MBC is your home and you seek to impact Washington, DC in a mighty way with the message of Jesus, we invite you to join us. We want to help you on your journey to live out God’s plan for you!
Membership will help you live out four disciplines essential to your spiritual development:
- Grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ
- Connect in Biblical community
- Serve in your God-given ministry
- Share the message of Jesus Christ
Members have the privilege of participating in quarterly congregational meetings and voting on important issues like the election of elders, acceptance of new members and the annual budget. Membership is required for some volunteer and teaching positions.
We encourage spiritual growth and worship through baptism and giving financially, but these are not requirements for membership.
How Do I Become a Member?
Attend a Membership Class at your campus. Classes are held several times a year and are required for all prospective members. This is a great way to learn about our vision, values, beliefs and our staff. It is also your opportunity to ask questions about the church.
Have you attended a Membership Class? Then send your completed application to us at Membership, 8925 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22182 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need another copy of the application, please let us know.
