More on Membership

The United Methodist Church, a fellowship of believers, is part of the Church Universal and celebrates its diversity. Therefore, all persons, without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, or economic condition, shall be eligible to attend its worship services, to participate in its programs, and, when they take the appropriate vows, to be admitted into its membership in any local church in the connection. (In the case of persons whose disabilities prevent them from assuming the vows, their legal guardians, themselves members in full covenant relationship with God and the Church, the community of faith, may recite the appropriate vows on their behalf.)

The membership into Rehoboth United Methodist church shall include all baptized persons who have come into membership by confession of faith or transfer and whose names had not been removed from the membership rolls by reason of death, transfer, withdrawal, or removal cause.

A member of any local United Methodist church is a member of the total United Methodist connection.


The Meaning of Membership

When persons unite with a local United Methodist church, they profess their faith in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, and in the Holy Spirit. Thus, they make known their desire to live their daily lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. They covenant together with God and with the members of the local church to keep the vows which are a part of the order of confirmation and reception into the Church:

  •       To confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and pledge their allegiance to his kingdom,
  •       To receive and profess the Christian faith as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
  •       To promise according to the grace given them to live a Christian life and always remain faithful members of Christ’s holy Church,
  •       And to be loyal to The United Methodist Church and uphold it by their prayers, their presence, their gifts, and their service.


All members are to be held accountable to their faithfulness to their covenant and vows with God and the other members of Rehoboth.
