God wants believers to be part of a local church. Here are ways to become a member of our church. By Baptism When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you need to obey Him by being baptized (immersed). Following your baptism, you will be a member of this church. By Letter If you are a member of another Baptist church, you may request we write that church stating you have come by letter into our church. They in turn will send us a letter confirming you have been a member there, transferring your membership from their church to ours. By Statement If you have committed your life to Christ and have been biblically baptized by immersion, you can request that we receive you into membership by statement of prior confession and baptism.
