Become A Member
Questions such as these are often asked about church membership:
How may I join?
At the close of every worship service a hymn is sung and a minister stands facing the congregation. Simply walk to him/her and indicate that you want to join the church or make another decision. You may also contact a minister at the Church Office during the week and state your desire to become a member.
Are there different ways to join?
Yes. We receive members three ways:
1. Confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and baptism by immersion.
2. Transfer of membership from another Baptist church.
3. *As a Christian, by statement of a previous conversion and baptism regardless of its mode.
*Baptism by immersion, though not required, is always an option for those previously baptized in another way.
You may also join as an Associate Member, which has no requirement of baptism by immersion. Associates have all the responsibilities and privileges of membership with the exception that they are not eligible for certain leadership positions.
May I be a member of a Bible Study Group or Sanctuary Choir, yet not a church member?
Of course. This is an excellent way to get to know some of our members and more about our church. We will be glad to help you find a group that helps you grow in Christlikeness.
I still have some questions.
The decision about what you will do with Jesus is the most important decision of your life. You may want to call the church and talk to someone before making a decision . The office number is (434) 293-5106. We are eager to help you in any way we can. May God bless you as you worship with us each Sunday.
