Membership Matters Class

We have a highly informative membership class that covers the church vision, statement of faith, church covenant, leadership style, worship philosophy, and many other areas. The class is offered approximately three times a year (fall, winter, and spring) as a 4-week Sunday School class. Our hope is to slow you down just enough to help you understand Clifton with much greater depth and what is expected of you as a member.

See the events calendar for details on when these classes are offered.

Interview with Two Elders

The next step is to set up an interview with two elders. This is a great opportunity for the elders to get to know you, hear your testimony, and answer any remaining questions you may have about the church.

Written Testimony

Candidates for membership will write their personal testimony and answer a few other questions. This will then be published in the church newsletter for the members of Clifton.

Church vote

You will be asked to attend a Wednesday evening service or Members’ Meeting where you will stand before the congregation and affirm your personal trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life. Afterward, the church will vote on receiving you as a new member of our church family!
