At North Arundel Church, we believe that membership matters; church membership is about so much more than just signing a piece of paper or joining some kind of club. Membership in the church is about commitment and accountability. The specifics of this commitment are spelled out in our Membership Covenant. However, before someone can sign a covenant and commit to membership at BLC, there are a few requirements. The first criteria for becoming a member of Bay Life Church is being in a right relationship with Jesus. (Click here for more information about following Jesus.) The second requirement is that you have been, or are planning to be, baptized. (If you have any questions about what that means, please click here.) Bay Life Church also partakes in an annual membership renewal system. Thus, anyone who wishes to remain a member of the church must actively renew their commitment each calendar year. We find that this helps people understand the seriousness of their commitment.
