join our faith family

VISION OF MEMBERSHIP AT SANCTUARY 

Throughout Scripture, God intends for His people to live in community (Hebrews 10:24-25).  In the New Testament, Christ followers lived in community with each other (Acts 2:46-47, 4:32).  The church functions as a connected body with each part playing a significant role (Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31). At Sanctuary, we believe that the local church is the hope of the world.  In a culture of consumerism, God is calling His people to be committed members of a community of believers they can call family. It is our desire to function as a family, and we invite you to be a part of our Sanctuary Faith Family.

Once you are ready to call Sanctuary home and you want to become a committed part of our Faith Family, we invite you to follow these simple steps to let us know you are ready to move forward in the membership process:
