New Beginnings Fellowship: Membership


New Beginnings Fellowship (now Parke Memorial Presbyterian Church) is a local, congregational expression of the Christian faith, the Church Universal, the Body of Christ. As such the congregation unites for worship, service, fellowship, teaching, preaching, evangelism, prayer, and observance of the Christian ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

The common faith of this Community of Believers is expressed in the Statement of Faith (see Welcome Page).

Membership in the New Beginnings Fellowship is expressed in one of three possible ways. (The following information is for historical purposes only. Church membership is now per Presbyterian Church expectations).
