BECOME A MEMBER
After getting to know us and gathering with us, we hope you will grow with us. That means moving beyond being our guest, to being our fellow church family member. If you decide you want to become a member of our church, then there are 3 options. Membership matters to us. All 3 of these ways are based upon a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord through faith. At the conclusion of our worship gatherings, we offer an invitation for anyone to join our church.
1. You can join by Baptism. Salvation occurs when a person admits to God that he/she is a sinner and then welcomes Jesus into his/her life as Lord. Following this private, life-changing decision, a person will obey Jesus' command to be baptized. New Testament baptism follows salvaton and is by immersion to indicate one's faith in Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. So, a person can join our church through this public demonstration of faith in Jesus.
2. You can join by Letter. If you have already been saved and have followed the Lord in believer's baptism, then you can join by a simple transfer of your membership letter from your previous church to First Baptist Centerton. Our office staff will handle the transfer based on your request. We receive members by letter from other churches of "like faith and practice" or simply, these churches "believe and teach the way we believe and teach" on the essentials of the faith. Of course there will be someone ready during the invitation to help you answer any questions you may have.
3. You can join by Statement. In the event that your church membership records from your previous church are not available for a transfer, we will accept your word or "statement" of your scriptural baptism from a church of like faith and practice.
