Becoming A Member

 

How can I join?

Any person may become a member of the church who acknowledges Christ as Lord of his or her life; who has trusted Christ alone for salvation. Here are few simple steps:

1) Present yourself for membership during any Worship Service or other church gathering when the invitation is extended after the message.
A minister will invite anyone who wishes to become a member to the front of the church. A minister will be there to greet you and pray with you. A member of our church family will visit with you to record some information.

You can also request presentation by a member of the church during worship or other church gathering.

2) You will need to express your desire for membership in one of the following ways.

a. Profession of faith
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your Savior and/or publicly acknowledged confessed him, you will be given an opportunity to do so and also set a time to be baptized.

b. Transfer of letter from a sister Baptist Church
If you are currently a member of another Southern Baptist Church, we will receive as a member with the promise a letter from that church. First Baptist Church will contact that church and notify them of your request.

c. Statement of faith
If you previously made a profession of faith and been baptized by immersion in another faith tradition. We will be happy to welcome you in to our family of believers.
