Church Membership . . .

Amazing things happen when we commit to working together in unity!


Our church consists of people at different commitment levels:   

  • Those who attend from time to time

  • Those who attend regularly, and are involved in our ministries

  • Those who attend regularly; are involved in our ministries; and have become voting members

Here, at Trinity, we do not aggressively promote membership, although we do encourage it.  We give the opportunity for those who attend regularly to become  members and vote on meaningful decisions for the future of our church.


  • Consistent with Scripture, we require that you have personally received Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. (John 3:3-5)

  • Regular attendance at Trinity Church for six months or more is a requirement before submitting a membership application.  This gives us both a chance to know each other better and see where you fit in our church family, to use your gifts and talents best.

  • We also ask that you wholeheartedly support the life and leadership of Trinity by:  your regular, faithful attendance; the consistent giving of your tithes and offerings; and serving with your gifts and abilities.



  • The State of California requires us to have a formal membership as a part of our non-profit status.

  • Members are part of the decision-making process for the future plans of our congregation.

  • Members help select the leaders of our church, including Board Members and the Senior Pastor (when there is a vacancy).  Annual Membership Meetings are held in February each year, and it is important to have most of our members present.  

  • The selection of military chaplains is based on the national membership of our church, therefore, the more members we have, the more Assembly of God chaplains may be assigned.

  • If we should need to borrow money for the relocation of our church, membership is the basis for lending institutions as they qualify us.


Please pray about joining us in membership.  If you feel led to pursue this, then we encourage you to complete a membership application and submit it to the church office.  If you have any questions, we are here for you.  Applications are available on the back table in the sanctuary.  We can mail one to you if you call the church office (209.838.3000) and request one.  Membership applications are reviewed at the monthly Board Meeting (usually on the 3rd Thursday of the month).


We ask members to attend faithfully, serve willingly, and give joyfully!
