Membership at Maywood

When an individual is saved, he becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13). Because he is united to Christ and the other members of the body in this way, he is therefore qualified to become a member of a local expression of that body. Although Scripture does not contain an explicit command to formally join a local church, the biblical foundation for church membership permeates the New Testament.

Membership Classes are offered several times each year. In our Membership Class you will learn about our church's history, the Evangelical Free Church of America, our statement of faith and core values, and the direction of Maywood to become a people who reach people for Christ.

 

Believers' Baptism

In our Baptism Preparedness Class, you will explore what baptism is, a brief history of baptism in the Bible, as well as who may be baptized, when one is to be baptized, and where and how one is to be baptized. We as a church believe that baptism should be by immersion, and in this class you will learn some of the reasons behind that belief. These classes and baptism services are offered several times throughout the year. A special time is our summer baptism at the river and all-church picnic.

Discipling Growth Triangle

The DISCIPLING growth triangle is a visual tool that directs us in evaluating our spiritual growth. It assists us in understanding what we do to fulfill the mission God has called us to accomplish. Each of the five tiers builds on the one below; and, in order to progress up to the next level, we must be involved in the previous steps. As reflected in our Core Values, prayer undergirds and permeates each level of growth.

Step 1: Participating in Sunday Worship Celebrations...Being part of Maywood’s uncompromising commitment to preach and teach the Word of God, worshipping Him together in multiple venues.

Step 2: Connecting to a Life Group...The body of Christ is all about relationships, namely, with Jesus Christ and with one another. These relationships are enriched at MEFC through children’s classes (Faith Factory) and Life Groups. They are an integral part of the church’s DNA. Life Groups are open in various forms and venues throughout the week and on weekends. The core components for each Life Group are Scripture, Prayer, Care, Fellowship, and Outreach.

MEFC’s Life Groups exist in three main types: (1) Ministry Life Groups, that primarily meet at the church during the week; (2) Community Life Groups, that meet mainly in neighborhood homes throughout the week; and (3) Sunday Morning Life Groups.

Step 3: Serving the church, community and world...Spiritual gifts are special abilities that the Holy Spirit gives believers to accomplish the work of the ministry. Often these gifts become apparent as we get involved in serving. We also seek to connect you to an area of ministry in which your spiritual gifts can be utilized and you can leave a legacy of service. Through the year we have classes to teach and help identify spiritual gifts that people may have.

Step 4: Sharing the Gospel...Evangelism means “sharing the good news.” God has given us the gift of knowing Christ; all Christians have the responsibility to give the gift away by sharing Him with others, especially our neighbors. At Maywood evangelism is informal and relationship-driven. It is not a program, but a life-style. Ongoing classes in evangelism training can be taken throughout the year.

Step 5: Disciple-making...As we build on each of the previous steps, we will be committed to intentional discipleship. That is, investing ourselves in the lives of others by helping them grow in their walk with Christ. Our ultimate goal is to reproduce ourselves in next generation leaders who will impact our world locally, regionally and globally!
