How To Become a Member

Pix 1


Because the power of the church is a personal relationship with God … the membership process begins when YOU:

Step 1

Worship with us. In our worship service you will get to know the Friendship family and the manner in which we respond to God’s presence among us. During the worship service you will be given an opportunity to respond to the Lords call on your life by indicating your desire to join us as a candidate for baptism or by Christian experience.

Step 2

Because we want to help you make an informed decision, we require that all new members meet with the New Member Council where you will be given vital information and counseling.

Step 3

Attend New Member Orientation Class. These four one hour classes present vital information about the church and a member’s responsibility. There will also be time for you to ask questions. We want you to have all of the information you need to become an effective member of our congregation. The classes are offered on Sunday at 9:30 AM during the Sunday School hour.

Step 4

Because unity is essential for a healthy congregation… all new members receive the “Right Hand Of Fellowship” on the First Sunday following Communion. This is the official welcome of new members into the Friendship Family.

Step 5

Participate as an Active Member. Begin serving! We will help you to find a place of involvement in the ministries of Friendship Baptist Church where you may develop your God given talent in service to the Church and the community.
