The church of Jesus Christ is a family that is on a mission together. Therefore, to join Calvary Church Lakewood is to join a family and join a mission. We believe becoming a member of a local church is one of life’s most important decisions because the church is the primary vehicle through which the gospel and the glory of God are displayed to the world.

Are you interested in exploring more about CCL and pursuing membership? If so, we have a simple three-step process. The process is designed to help you get to know Calvary Church Lakewood and for the church to get to know you.


Walk through the self-guided membership interest class online

This interest class provides an opportunity for you to hear all about Calvary Lakewood before making a commitment to membership. We share about who we are, what we believe, and how we seek to live out our faith as a church. Learn why church membership matters and discover our 8 expectations for members at Calvary Lakewood. Your completion of this class does not obligate you to join, but for all those desiring membership, this class is your first step!


Another important step is to set up a conversation with one of the pastors. The purpose of this conversation is to foster community with those desiring membership as well as to provide an outlet for any lingering questions about the church to be answered.  Our hearts desire is to know you and for you to know us. One of the ways we get to know you is by having you fill out an “Membership Introduction Form” which needs to be completed before your conversation with one of the pastors. Find the form here:


The final step of the membership process is covenanting together with the church. Most simply put, a covenant is an agreement or promise between two or more parties especially for the performance of some action. After completing the class and conversation, those who desire to join the church in covenant membership will be affirmed by the congregation upon recommendation from the pastors. Affirmed members will then sign the church covenant.
