Become a Member

If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through a process by which to join FBC.

If you would like to be baptized, you would follow this same process and fill out the same form.

Membership Application

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.

Membership Interview

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.

Pastoral Recommendation

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.

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.
