What does it mean to be a church "member"? The Bible teaches that God intends for us to play an active and vital part in the body of Christ, the local church. He intends for His churches to be healthy places and for the members of those churches to be healthy as well. We believe membership at Neelsville can produce spiritual growth in our members as we contribute to the growth and health of the whole. At NPC, we love membership because it's a way of affirming our commitment to be Jesus' disciples in this specific place and time and community where God as called us to live.


Membership means that we make promises to care for and pray for one another, to help each other grow, encourage one another into Christ-like living, and to partner together to share God's love with the wider community. Here is a link to our Covenant of Membership below, which is our way of saying what we commit to as members.

Pastor Pete asked me if I would be willing to tell you all a little bit about my spiritual journey. I work with dogs for a living so I haven't talked in front of a group of humans in a long time, so I'm a little nervous...but like my favorite basketball player, Stephen Curry writes on his shoes at the start of every game, 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me [Philippians 4:13], so here we go..."
