Membership


Join Us on Mission

Membership at IPC represents our commitment to collectively live on Jesus’ mission together in the everyday stuff of life. Together, as a family of believers, we commit to our mission to make disciples who are making disciples — to love one another, build each other up into Christ (Ephesians 4:15) and lead others to do the same. While all Christians are a part of the universal church, God’s Word gives clear instruction to belong to a specific local church. Here is what that looks like at IPC:

  • Gather – Commit to gathering together regularly with the church body
  • Go  Be a disciple of Jesus (making disciples who make disciples)
  • Give & Serve  Support IPC and serve the body with your time, talents, and treasure 
  • Grow  Meet regularly with others, formally and informally, to encourage and equip you in growing up into Christ

What are the biblical reasons and benefits of membership?

  • You have the benefit of receiving care of, and being accountable to, spiritual leaders. (Hebrews 13:17)
  • You have the benefits of church power to shape the ministry of the congregation. (Acts 6:1-6)
  • You are not ashamed to identify with Christ or His people. (Mark 8:38)
  • You stop being an independent Christian. (Matthew 8:15-17)
  • You have greater opportunities to use spiritual gifts.
  • (1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4)
  • You openly demonstrate the reality of the body of Christ.
  • (1 Corinthians 12:27)
  • You encourage new believers to a commitment to the local body. (Hebrews 10:24)

Where do I start?

You can start by applying online. After we receive your information, two of our elders will set up a time to meet with you to get to know you better. You’ll also have the opportunity to sign our  Membership Covenant which is a requirement for membership. At a future date, you will be received into the body of Irvine Presbyterian Church formally at a Sunday morning service

We are delighted that you are considering becoming a member of Irvine Presbyterian Church.

In Christ,
Scott Bullock
Lead Pastor
