    How to become a member of Montebello Christian Fellowship

    Step One: Membership Class

    Jesus and the Bible is the foundation of Montebello Christian Fellowship. Membership is for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We have a four-step process we use to join believers to the local body of Christ. All prospective members must attend our membership class. The class is composed of 5 classes covering the following:

    •MCF Statement of Faith

    •MCF Church Covenant

    •Why Should I Join a Church

    •Church History

    •Outreach & Missions

    •Life as a Church

    Courses will be offered periodically throughout the year on different days and times. Contact the church office for information on upcoming classes. Upon completion, those who attended all of classes are asked to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process.

    Step Two: Membership Interview

    In a 45-minute meeting, the prospective member meets with a pastor to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application and recommendation from the pastor would go to the church leadership who presently has the responsibility of presenting the person to the congregation for affirmation.

    At a regularly scheduled Deacon’s meeting, the pastor will review the applicant’s testimony with the other Deacons. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.

    Step Three: Congregational Letter

    A letter is sent to the membership with the names of each new prospective member. Each name would include a brief description of their testimony. The letter communicates to the membership that there is a one-month period before Congregational Affirmation, to allow any concerns about the prospective member by a member of the congregation to the leadership.

    Step Four: Congregational Affirmation 

    At the next available MCF congregational meeting, the pastor who conducted the interview briefly describes how the applicants, who desire to be admitted to membership, have come to know the Lord. A vote is taken, and with a majority secured, candidates are admitted into membership.
