The Bible teaches that membership in a local church is the normal expectation for a healthy Christian. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our membership process by which to join Redeemer City Church.

Throughout the membership process, you have the opportunity to hear our story, mission, basic beliefs, theological distinctives, and our membership expectations. All prospective members must attend our membership orientation.


1. Attend our next membership orientation - SEPTEMBER 29

If you would like to learn more about our church and what it would mean to commit to this congregation, you are welcome to attend our membership orientation. This orientation is required if you plan on pursuing formal membership in our church, and is also a great forum for asking any questions you may have about Redeemer City Church. Upon completion, those who attend our membership orientation are able, but not obligated, to fill out the membership questionnaire. Please register for our next membership orientation below.

2. Complete Our Membership questionnaire

After attending our membership orientation, if you are interested in pursuing membership you will fill out a membership questionnaire. This will give us an opportunity to learn more about you and how we might better serve you before the membership interview. If married, we ask that both husband and wife complete an individual questionnaire.

3. Membership Interview

In a 45 minute meeting, the prospective member (married couples will be interviewed together) meets with an elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God's converting work in his or her life. This discussion fosters community with those pursuing membership by providing the pastors an opportunity to spend time with each potential member. The conversational setting provides an outlet for any lingering questions you may have about the church. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and then the questionnaire will be reviewed by the Lead Pastor and pastoral team.


Your questionnaire and testimony will be reviewed by our Lead Pastor and pastoral team. Once the pastoral team and the perspective member are all in agreement with moving forward in the process. We then move to the final stage of the process.


During a member meeting, the pastor briefly describes the perspective member’s testimony and presents them to the church for membership. By majority vote, the individual is affirmed into membership. This begins the excitement of doing life with others in the church by striving to know and delight in God and make him known in Washington, D.C. and beyond!

Discipleship gatherings are small, same-gender groups that gather together weekly for scripture reading, prayer, and accountability. Group members are asked to commit to attending the gatherings and to be fully present in participation. These gatherings are a great way to grow in your relationship with Christ and in fellowship with others in the church. Discipleship gatherings are much more than a weekly event on the calendar. They are groups of people learning to follow Jesus and do life together by devoting themselves to one another through study, prayer, and accountability.

We believe that we were created and designed to be in community with others. Our discipleship gatherings are the place that we seek to grow in our relationship with God and in true, honest fellowship with one another. It's a place to know and be known. It's a place to grow as disciples who make disciples. In short, it's a place to live out our call to follow Jesus...together.



We have gatherings going on throughout the week. To learn more about how to get connected with a Discipleship Gathering, contact us at 

Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by providing environments, curriculum and resources that center on the gospel and teach the nature and character of God. Children are a gift from God to us and we work hard to engage them in the life of the church. Therefore, it is our desire to have our children in service with adults during part of our worship services. We believe it to be helpful and encouraging for families to worship together as a means for parents to live out God's admonishment to raise children up in the Lord.

Every Sunday, our volunteers provide a fun, clean, safe, protected environment for our children to learn about Jesus. Below, you can read about what takes place.

Children ages 0-10 

There is a time of games, followed by hearing a teaching from Scripture and prayer. Our kids have age-appropriate teaching time each time they gather. Our current curriculum is The Gospel Project for Kids. The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything.

Your Child’s Safety 

We have a great team of volunteers who have been screened with background checks to provide a safe environment.

We use a computer-based check-in system. On your first visit, we will gather information; names, birth dates, phone numbers, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for every child. Each family is given a unique code for each child which is used during child pick-ups.
