Membership

Our commitment to you extends out of the grace and mercy we know through Jesus Christ, our risen Lord, who calls each of us to welcome one another with hospitality and compassion.

We invite you to learn more about the life and spirit of our church, and we hope you will experience Nassau Presbyterian Church as your family of faith and our sanctuary as your home. Our commitment to you extends out of the grace and mercy we know through Jesus Christ, our risen Lord, who calls each of us to welcome one another with hospitality and compassion. As we enter into each season of witness, service, and growth, we respond as God’s people. We invite you join us on this journey of faith.

More information about our community of faith and ways you may become engaged are available to you in many forms, including this website and printed resources. We also welcome conversations over email, the phone, and especially in-person. When you are able to join us for worship or other events, please make yourself known to any of our church members and staff. You can see the time of our upcoming worship service on the homepage.

We all look forward to welcoming you with warmth and care. Your presence within our community of faith and your participation with us in the worship of God means everything to us.

About Membership

Whether joining by profession of faith, re-affirmation of faith, or letter of transfer, you are asked to affirm your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. What that affirmation means for your life will be discovered as you give yourself to the ministry and mission of this local congregation.

Our Book of Order states that, “A faithful member accepts Christ’s call to be involved responsibly in the ministry of his church.” Such involvement includes:

  • proclaiming the good news
  • taking part in the common life and worship of a particular church
  • praying and studying Scripture and the faith of the Christian church
  • supporting the work of the church through the giving of money, time and talents
  • participating in the governing responsibilities of the church
  • demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church
  • responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others
  • living responsibly in the personal, family, vocational, political, cultural, and social relationships of life, and working in the world for peace, justice, freedom, and human fulfillment.
