Following Jesus is walk, not a sprint.
Therefore, discipleship happens one step at a time, each step being as important as the last. No matter where you are at in your walk with Jesus, we want to help you grow as a disciple and learner. Below you will find information on different ways to get connected, find community, our different Learning Environments we offer to help you grow, as well as important discipleship processes like Church Membership, Baptism, Parent-Child Dedication, Profession of faith, and more.

PORTERBROOK QUAD CITIES
Porterbrook is broken up into Year 1 and Year 2 classes, running each year from the Fall to Spring, throughout three 10-week terms. During those terms students will study a wide range of theological content aimed to shape their head, heart, and hands for gospel leadership and ministry. Study takes place inside a Cohort group of students where they will discuss and apply the content they are learning to their real life. Additionally, four Seminar Days are held throughout the year where all students will gather to further discuss and review that terms content more widely, and hear from exceptional guest speakers.

At Sacred City, Church Membership is not so much a formal system as it is a living relationship. Unlike a gym membership that you can start and stop any time, church membership is committing to participate, function, and minister within a particular place within the body of Christ (the church). It's saying, "This is my place, these are my people."
Twice per year (typically in the Spring and Fall), we offer our Membership Process. Our church membership process includes three class sessions, an online process, and a personal interview with one of our Elders - all to help better understand Sacred City as a whole, as well as the vision and function of church membership, and your place in that vision here at Sacred City.
Membership Class discussions, led by our Elder Team, include:
- The Gospel Message & An Introduction to Church Membership
- The Marks of the Church & Identities and Rhythms
- Church Leadership & Biblical Giving

BAPTISM - DEDICATION - PROFESSION
At Sacred City, we make regular rhythms of recognizing and celebrating the work of God in our lives. Every 6-8 weeks throughout the year we set aside special time in our gatherings to celebrate:
- The Sacrament of Baptism for new believers and the babies or children of of believers (You can read more about our stance on The Sacraments here).
- Parent-Child Dedication
- The public Profession of Faith for children who were baptized as infants and have come to faith.
If any one of these three steps is the next one for you or someone in your family, you can start your process at the links below!
