How to Become a Member

Looking to learn more about your faith, Jesus Christ, or FPC Newark?

We welcome new members into our church family by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ, or by letter of transfer from another Presbyterian church. We ask all new members to attend a New Member Class, which has two sessions. We hold between two and four classes a year.

In these sessions you will not only discover what it means to be a Presbyterian but what it means to join our church family. You will also be helped in understanding where you are in your own spiritual growth. Some of the things that you will be going over in these classes:

    • What we believe, and what our church is committed to.
    • You will have the opportunity to get to know the pastor as well as other new members.
If you are interested in being in our next new members class, indicate your interest on your Communication Card when you attend worship next Sunday or email our Office Manager David Kayumy at
