Membership Interest Class

At The Response Church we hold membership in high regard. All members are disciples of Jesus, unified by their identity in Christ. Being a member of The Response Church is about making our commitment to Christ and his people visible through covenanting to the local church. This unity is expressed in the way we collaborate in loving God, loving fellow believers, and loving our neighbors in the culture around us.

The process to become a Member of The Response Church includes six simple steps:
  • Membership Interest Class

    All individuals who desire to become members are required to attend our Membership Interest Class. We offer our Membership Interest Class on the first Saturday of every month from 9:00AM-11:30AM at Pastor Joel’s house at 8227 Phyllis Place San Diego, CA 92123.
    Please note, Childcare will not be provided. We encourage you to seek other accommodations for your children.

  • Interview With An Elder

    After completing the class these individuals are required to participate in a Membership Interview with one of our Elders.

  • Presented as Member Candidate

    Once an individual has attended the Membership Interest Class and completed their Membership Interview with an Elder, they will be invited to attend our next monthly Members’ Meeting to be presented as a “Member Candidate” to the current Membership of our church. This provides our current Members with the opportunity to observe these Member Candidates’ life and doctrine.

  • Received as Full member

    Once an individual has been presented as a Member Candidate in one of our monthly Members’ Meetings they will be ready to be received as a “Full Member” at our next monthly Members’ Meeting through a simple majority vote of the current Membership.

  • Get Baptized

    Once an individual has been welcomed into Full Membership, they will be expected to be baptized if they have not been already.

  • Sign the Membership Covenant

    Lastly, upon the completion of all the previous steps, these individuals will be required to sign our “Membership Covenant,” which can be found below.
