How Can I Become a Member?

COVID-19: Because of the guidelines for limited physical contact, our procedures for becoming a member are a little different. Following the service, our staff will be available to speak with you with proper social distancing about church membership or any other spiritual need you may have.

If you are interested in becoming a member of First Baptist Church, here is some information to help you.  At the close of the service, we offer an invitation.  As we sing the invitational hymn, you are invited to make your way to the front of the sanctuary, where you will be welcomed.  You may join our church in one of the following ways:
  • By profession of faith in Christ followed by baptism.
  • By transfer of letter from another Baptist church.
  • By statement of prior conversion and baptism by immersion in another church.
  • By acceptance from another denomination which does not practice baptism by immersion.  The new member would be baptized as a restatement of faith which symbolizes a desire to unite with this church and its heritage.
  • By watch care, leaving your membership in a “home” church but aligning with First Baptist Church as your church away from home.
