Becoming A Member.


Joining Our Church

Membership is open to anyone who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins and has been baptized by immersion by a body of believers of like faith and practice. If you have not placed your faith in Jesus Christ alone for forgiveness of sins and been baptized by immersion we will assist you with these spiritual decisions.

Two Requirements for Membership:

Saving Faith

Trusting in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins. This decision is the beginning but not the ending of what it means to follow Christ.

Baptism by Immersion

We view baptism as being an outward, visible demonstration of an inward spiritual transformation which comes about when one trusts in Christ alone for salvation. Our position of baptism by immersion is based on the following:

The word baptize (baptizo) in Greek means to "dip" or "immerse" under water.

Immersion best illustrates the believers identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:1-11 and Colossians 2:12)

The descriptions of baptism in the New Testament suggest that people were immersed. (Matthew 3:6, John 3:23, Acts 8:38).
