Church Membership

Join Myers Park Pres

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege. It is also a commitment to participate in Christ’s mission. A faithful member bears witness to God’s love and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church.

Myers Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC) is a dynamic community of faith with more than 4,500 members. We encourage every member of our congregation to be actively involved in worship, study, service and stewardship, and to be focused on building open and genuine relationships. We strive to live out God’s transforming work, together, as the body of Christ.

How do I join?

New Member classes are held 4-5 times per year. Upon completing a class, you may join the church as follows:

  • Reaffirmation of Faith (baptized but not recently active in a church)
  • Transfer of Letter (recently active in another church)
  • Profession of Faith (never baptized).

If you have never been baptized, we will coordinate with you to schedule your baptism.
