Join Our Church Family


How do I become a member of Christ Church?

Once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you are born again. You are now eligible to become a member of Christ Church. The membership process begins by signing-up online or by filling out a membership card. This automatically enrolls you in Joining Our Church Family classes.

What will I learn in the Joining Our Church Family course?

In the 10 classes, we cover the foundational tenets of the Christian faith and secondly, you will get an in-depth look inside Christ Church.

The classes are currently delivered in two intensive sessions on Saturdays.

Am I obligated to become a member?

No, you are not obligated to become a member. Once you complete the Joining Our Church Family course, if you feel that Christ Church is not the church for you, please contact the church office at 973-783-1010 ext. 211 and communicate this to Sandra Bugg, the Director of the Church Life department.

Christ Church has so many members, can the pastors give personal care?

We are very intentional about programs and ministries that make our large congregation targeted to individual needs. In fact, the reason Christ Church has grown, is because of our sensitivity to Pastoral Care and Small Groups.

What are the advantages of joining a small group?

We have established Small Groups to help you connect with other members and to provide a vehicle for introducing friends and family to Jesus Christ in a warm and embracing environment. Small Groups consist of Life Groups which meet twice per month in a member’s home for fellowship and Bible discussion and Life Activity Groups that offer opportunities to enjoy common interests with others. Small Groups are designed to foster relationship building and spiritual bonding on a deeper level.
