I have always been a little bit fuzzy when it comes to membership transfer for professing members. Currently I have a couple of members of the Protestant Reformed Church who would like to join our church. From what I can tell we only accept straight transfers from RCA, EPC, and ECO. Does this mean that anyone coming from PRC, URC, PCA, etc. must profess their faith again in the CRC? It seems harsh to say that their profession of faith in these other denominations wasn't good enough, especially since so much of our theology is the same. Could someone better versed in the church order explain how we decide?
