Traditionally, to join a church, you’d walk the aisle during the time of invitation in a worship service. You can still do so at First Baptist, as we encourage this time of the service to be a meaningful time where you respond in the way God is leading you. But that’s just one of three ways you can join.
If coming forward and being introduced in front of the church is too intimidating, simply contact us and let us know you want to join. Someone will be in touch with you, and we’ll recognize you from your seat in the service you attend. Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (205) 693-9991.
You can also join at Starting Point, a membership class that is offered periodically throughout the year. Here you’ll meet our Pastor and staff while getting a glimpse of the ministries and mission of our church. You don’t have to join after attending Starting Point, but many do. Watch for information on when our next Starting Point will be.
You may join our church in one of three ways:
1. By Profession of Faith/Baptism:
For persons who have been saved by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being scripturally baptized by immersion.
2. By letter from another Baptist church:
For persons who are saved, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and are members in good standing of another Baptist church which will transfer them by letter to FBCT (we will contact your current church and handle transfer of the letter).
3. By statement of faith:
For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation, but are not members of another Baptist church.
