Membership Q & A
Q: Why join Faith✟Journey Lutheran Church?
A: Becoming a member at FJLC Lutheran acknowledges what God has done and is doing in your life. It is a commitment on your part to join with God in his work in the world through Faith✟Journey's Lutheran’s mission, to equip you with relevant faith for 21st century life, to connect you with other real people and to empower you to serve in the name of Jesus
We invite you to join our team as we strive to do God's work in Fargo, West Fargo and beyond!
Q: What if I can’t attend an orientation session?
A: Contact the Church Office at 701-282-3309 and we will work with you.
Q: What membership expectations does Faith✟Journey Lutheran have of members?
A: The greatest membership expectation is to worship God regularly and to be active in growing your faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. Also, putting your faith into action through volunteer service at Faith✟Journey and in our community is an expectation we encourage all members to pursue. These membership expectations are guaranteed by God’s Word to be good for your soul!
Q: Do I have to be baptized to be a member of Faith✟Journey?
A: Baptism is a membership requirement for joining any Christian church anywhere in the world. So, yes, you do need to be baptized. However, if you have already been baptized into the Christian faith elsewhere, (Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist…the denomination/church doesn’t matter), God’s baptismal promise to you is good and you do not need to be re-baptized. If you have not been baptized, talk to one of our pastors. We want to help you and will make your baptism into the Christian faith both comfortable and meaningful. Click Here for more on Baptism.
Q: How much does it cost to become a member?
A: Absolutely nothing. Jesus paid the price – we provide coffee and cookies!
Q: Will I get asked to give money?
A: At Faith✟Journey we believe, in line with what scripture teaches us, that God deserves offerings of our time, talents and treasures. So, we will challenge you to give of yourself to join with God in his work in this world, but your offerings and how you choose to give them are between you and God.

Q: Is there a test I have to take?
A: It may surprise you, but you have already taken and passed the test by committing to join God in his work in this world.
