BECOMING A MEMBER
At Ebenezer Pentecostal Church (EPC), we consider ourselves as a family and we welcome everyone regardless of caste, creed and culture. God loves everyone and we as His body wants you to be a part of EPC family. Just as a non-member cannot become involved in the matters of the family, a non-member of the church will not be able to be involved in the affairs and decision making of the church.
The term "church membership" to some may evoke strange ideas and feelings. Nevertheless, by God's design, being a member with a local church family is simple, meaningful, and empowering. A quick glance through the Bible, we find God intends His children to be connected wholeheartedly to a local church so that they can be encouraged, equipped and mobilized for His divine purposes (Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 4:11-16). Your decision to become a member of a local church is an important decision and indeed mutually benefits you and the larger church family.
We view church membership with sincerity and simplicity. Joining Ebenezer Pentecostal Church as a member is like joining a family. Like in a marriage, the bride and groom commit to each other as they become one family, commitments are a natural and critical element of joining a local church. Ebenezer Pentecostal Church’s leadership is committed to accepting, equipping, and mobilizing our members in the plan that God has for each person and each family. We are also committed to lead our church family as a whole into God's purpose.
Your membership is another way of affirmation that you are a committed member of the EPC family. Further, as a registered charity organisation, we are required to keep details of all our active members and periodically update their details. As well, being a Church entity, we might require issue letters or supporting documents towards Immigration NZ or other concerned bodies for you. While doing so we are legally deemed to provide such services only to our registered members and provide references if required. To ensure we provide you all such services without any barriers, it would be helpful to have your continued membership.
Accept | EQUIP | SEND
Our vision at Ebenezer Pentecostal Church is to Accept, Equip and Send people to do God’s work. As a church, we want to accept people from all walks of life and equip them to do God’s work effectively and send them to do God's ministry. We take the great commission (Matthew 28:19-20) seriously and we want you to be a part of it.
