If you would like to be baptized, you would follow this same process and fill out the same form.
If after being at FBC and seeing that you would like to join our church, you will need to fill out a membership application. The membership application is a helpful way for the pastors to get to know you better. We will review your application and schedule a membership interview with you.
You can fill out the application online below or you can fill out the paper form HERE.
In a 30-60 minute meeting, the prospective member meets with a pastor to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and then the application would go to the elders. As well, this membership interview allows for time for the applicant to ask any questions to the pastors.
The pastors will review the applicant’s testimony with the other elders. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.
During our member’s meetings, each pastor who conducted an interview briefly describes how the applicants, who are desiring to be admitted to membership, have come to know the Lord. Questions are fielded, a vote is taken, and with a majority secured, candidates are admitted into membership.
