Church Membership

Join APC

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege. It is also a commitment to participate in Christ’s mission. A faithful member bears witness to God’s love and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church.


Anchorage Presbyterian Church (APC) is a dynamic community of faith with about 300 members. We encourage every member of our congregation to be actively involved in worship, study, service and stewardship, and to be focused on building open and genuine relationships. We strive to live out God’s transforming work, together, as the body of Christ.


How Do I Join?

We encourage you to meet with one or both of our pastors to answer any questions you might have and receive and overview of our congregation.  If you’re ready, you will be invited to answer the questions for membership at a session meeting and join the church in one of the following ways:


Reaffirmation of faith (baptized but not recently active in a church)

Transfer of Letter (recently active in another church)

Profession of Faith (never baptized)

If you have never been baptized, we will coordinate with you to schedule your baptism on or before the Sunday you join.
