Who we are
Why we are here
Why you should join us!

We are a fellowship of Christians who commit to (1) study and apply God’s Holy Word to our everyday lives, (2) to pray, (3) to worship and (4) to reach out to others as we strive to carry out the Great Commission Christ gives the church.

“Be an Active Member of the Church!”

The Bible describes Jesus working through his followers to build the church.

Being a member of the church is synonymous with being a disciple, making a commitment to the Body of Christ, working with others in Christian love to grow the church.

• Early disciples devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer. (Acts 2:42)

• They met in fellowship to encourage each other with love to do good deeds in Christ’s Holy name. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

• They used their gifts in the church to perform functions and roles for which they were equipped. (Romans 12:4-5)

• They became good stewards of the grace and gifts of God. (1 Peter 4:10)

• And, day by day the Lord added to their number. (Acts 2:47)

What Are the Steps To Become a Member of the Church?

A meeting with the minister will provide you with firsthand information about the local church, the worldwide ministries to which we are connected through Presbyterian Church USA and our particular ministries in the community.

Our website and facebook page represent easy access to resources for you to begin to garner information about who we are, why we are here and why you may be led by God to join us.

A personal conversation with the minister (and potentially others at the church as well) combined with worshipping with us and experiencing firsthand the Spirit’s presence at the Steeple on the Beach is the best way to know if this particular church is the church God has planned for you.

Meeting with the minister is also an opportunity for us to get to know you too. Our church has an open door to all people. As Jesus invites all people unto Him, so do we.

Members of the church accept Jesus Christ as Lord. This is the condition of membership in the Body of Christ.

We encourage you to come as you are and we will meet you where you are on your faith journey. If you have been active in another church or if you are a relatively new believer, or if you are a seeker looking to explore a relationship with Jesus Christ, please come.

Because people come to the faith and to the church from different experiences and at different places on their journey, we do not define a prescribed number of classes or meetings independent of where a person is.

A longtime Christian familiar with the church may move to membership almost immediately. Someone not familiar with the church may require a few meetings with the minister. Someone new to faith entirely may require several meetings.

After meeting with the minister as needed and both the minister and the new-member-to-be agree the necessary foundation for membership is in place then a meeting is scheduled with a sub-group of Session (the local church board) to accept the new person into membership.

Thereafter, an induction occurs during the next convenient worship service where the congregation welcomes and celebrates the new member!!! This is Very Cool!!!!

We are redeveloping our new member orientation to ensure new members are nurtured to enhance their own spiritual health and also plugged in as they prayerfully decide what is the best way for them to serve others within and from the Body of Christ.

Please contact us for more information to determine if Steeple on the Beach, Community Presbyterian Church of Deerfield Beach, is the place God has long planned for you…….
