How to Join
If you are looking for a church home, we would love to welcome you into our church family. There are three ways a person may become a member of Stonegate Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Edmond. They are:
1. Profession of Faith: You may join by making a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ during a service of worship. In making your commitment to Christ, you would be asked a series of questions from the Confession of Faith of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and receive the sacrament of baptism, if you were not baptized as a child.
2. Transfer of Membership: Cumberland Presbyterian welcomes new members who wish to transfer their membership from another church. You do no need to be baptized again when transferring from another church or denomination.
3. Reaffirmation of Faith: In the event that your congregation no longer exists, or your church does not grant letters of transfer, you may become a member through a reaffirmation of your faith and a statement of your former church affiliation.

2.00 PARTICULAR CHURCH
2.01 A particular church is a congregation of professing Christians, together with their baptized children, who have entered into a covenant with each other to meet together regularly to worship God and study the word of God, to join together in a common witness to the gospel, and to engage in the good works to which Christians are called; and who have adopted a certain form of government.
2.11 The members of a particular church who are entitled to all rights and responsibilities of the church, consist of those persons who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, entered into the church covenant, and received the sacrament of baptism .
2.12 The session has responsibility to examine and instruct in church membership those who unite with a particular church.
2.13 Children of believers are, through the covenant, entitled to the sacrament of baptism and thereby become members of the household of faith. Such children are to receive pastoral oversight, instruction, and the care of the church, with a view that they repent of sin, personally confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and assume the full responsibilities of church membership.
2.14 Baptized persons who have not confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, even though they are adults, should continue to receive the watchful care and instruction of the church in the hope that they personally will own their faith.
2.15 Unbaptized persons who have not confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are within the pastoral concern of the church in the hope that they may be led to repentance and to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
