How to Join First Baptist Church

Register for a Discovery 101: Membership class. These classes are held over two weeks for about 1.5 hours, immediately following our Worship Service. They’re held in the Family Life Center, and lunch is provided free of charge. In this class, we cover our church’s vision, values, beliefs, structure, methods of joining, membership expectations, and more. We introduce you to our staff and lay leadership, as well as communicate areas in which you can plug in to serve among our church family.

All prospective members age 13 and older are required to take this class in order to join the church, as this is the pipeline to membership. Children under the age of 13 are not required to attend, but are welcome to attend with their parents, or if desired, parents can request childcare during the registration process (please register at least 5 days ahead of the start of a class to provide us time to arrange childcare).

The class is then followed up with a final meeting with our pastor. Following that meeting, we invite you to formally join the church on any Sunday by coming up during the Song of Response following the sermon to be presented to our church membership.

These Discovery 101: Membership classes are held roughly every quarter.
