Membership

Church Membership is a commitment to love and invest in God’s people.  This commitment is essential for a Christian’s growth in relationship with Jesus.

At the end of each worship service on Sundays, an invitation is extended to all those who wish to make a decision to have a relationship with Christ, to join the First Family, or make a new commitment to living the Christian's life. During that invitation simply come forward. The pastor or another staff member will greet you and someone will assist you with the necessary information.

First Baptist accepts members in multiple ways
  • 1.By receiving Christ as your Savior and Lord, and obeying Him through Christian baptism.
  • 2. By transfer of membership from another Baptist church
  • 3.By statement of your Christian Faith, you may join us if you are already a Christian, coming from another denomination or having no prior church membership, and you have been baptized by immersion as a symbol of your salvation.
  • 4. By baptism from another Christian denomination, being a Christian but having never been baptized by immersion. (This does not invalidate your previous commitment)

 

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:25

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
John 1:12

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16
