Our Church » How To Become A Member

First Baptist Church is a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed to fulfilling the purposes set forth in our church objectives.  If you desire to join with us and will be supportive of the beliefs and mission of our church, we warmly invite you to become a member.  Here are the two steps to becoming a member:

  • Come forward and present yourself for membership during any worship service when the invitation is given at the end of the message.
  • Express your desire for membership through one of the following means:

Profession of faith

If you have never received Jesus as Savior and Lord and/or never publicly confessed Him, you will be given an opportunity to do so.  After your decision has been confirmed, a date will be scheduled for your baptism at First Baptist Church.

If you are currently a member of another Southern Baptist Church, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from  that church.  First Baptist Church will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter.
