Church Membership – Why Should I?
Members will be voting on reports at the Annual Meeting February 23rd after church.
A voting member is someone who:
- Professes faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour;
- Has made a public profession of that faith through adult baptism or confirmation (such as the Anglican tradition);
- Has adopted the views of faith and practice held by First Baptist Church; and
- Is not a member of any other church.
Membership is not required for anyone wanting to worship or participate in any of the programs of First Baptist Church. It is required for service on the various boards of the church and for voting on an decisions that affect the life and ministry of the church.
Becoming a member is about committing before God and before this church family, that you are invested in the life and health of First Baptist Church for so long as your path is merged with that of this church.
Members are expected to:
- Faithfully attend worship services;
- Support the ministry of the church as gifts and time allow (includes: prayer, service, and financial giving); and
- Fully participate in congregational meetings (through which members participate in deciding the direction of ministry of our life together).
Contact Rev. Darrell Maguire if you are interested in becoming a member.
