What does becoming a member of CIBC mean?


It's your way of saying, “I’m all in. You can count on me to engage in service and fellowship.” 
It’s also the best way to say “I want your prayers, your counsel, and your teaching.”

If a church requires nothing of you as a member, and commits nothing to you as a church, it is practicing meaningless membership. Membership at CIBC is a commitment to our family, and a commitment from our family and pastors to you.


Step 1

Membership Class

The first step to becoming a member at CIBC, or simply learning more about what we believe, is to attend one of our quarterly membership classes.

Step 2

Membership Interview

Following your Membership Class, you’ll be invited to meet with a CIBC leader for a Membership Interview. Don’t be intimidated; this is simply a time for us to get to know your story more personally and answer any questions you may have about our membership covenant.

Step 3

Finalizing Membership & Next Steps

Your Membership Interviewer will help you take any next steps to finalize your membership. For you, this may be signing your membership covenant and helping you take a next step in serving, community, and giving. For others, it may be walking with you through any additional requirements for membership, such as baptism.
