Becoming a member of the SCP is one of the best ways to support the work of Christian philosophers. Membership in the SCP is open to anyone who considers himself or herself both a philosopher and a Christian. In particular, membership is not
restricted to any particular school of philosophy, to those teaching philosophy, to those with advanced degrees in philosophy, or to any branch of Christianity.
Besides supporting the work of Christian philosophers worldwide, membership in the SCP gets you access to the Member's Only section of the SCP website, makes you eligible for SCP-sponsored grants, and provides discounts on conference registration for some SCP events and the annual conference of the American Academy of Religion
