Discover Bel Air: Membership

Take the Next Step :: Discover BAC and Become a Member



Why membership?

Membership is not one more thing to do. It's a statement about what you want to give to and receive from this community of faith. We have a mission from God in this city and YOU have a unique role in God’s purpose. Will you commit to be part of where we are going and how we are getting there together?

Membership represents your desire and decision to be PLANTED, put down roots, and GROW here at Bel Air Church. Our commitment to you, beginning with the DISCOVER BAC membership experience, is to provide the conditions in which you are most likely to GROW through God’s guidance. Membership is where you can become known and get to know others while sharing your journey in knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You’ll hear more about the God-sized mission, vision, and values of Bel Air Church and become acquainted with where we’ve been and where we’re going. Discerning more about your unique gifts, you’ll learn about ways you can help others grow here!

Membership is a spiritual family, a team, a movement, and a commitment here at BAC.

What is the membership process?

We would like you to DISCOVER BAC and your unique role in our faith community before you make up your mind about membership. This class, offered a couple of times each year, is an eight week overview of Bel Air Church offered during the GROW HOUR (9:50–10:50 a.m. Sundays).

It consists of learning a little more about Jesus and Bel Air Church, small group discussion, reflection on your journey with Jesus and how he's calling you to serve Him, and the opportunity to meet some of the leaders and staff in our church. If, at the end of these 8 weeks, you decide that you want BAC to be YOUR church - as a member (and we hope you do!) – DISCOVER BAC is capped off with the reception of New Members into the church body during our worship services. By the end of this journey of discovery, it is our intent hope that you will be excited to be part of Bel Air Church membership, know people and have new friends, feel empowered to serve, and have some clear "Next Steps" in mind for your faith journey.

You can miss up to two of the eight classes and still join as a member. We ask that you listen to the podcast of the class content which is posted online.
