Becoming a Member

You may become a member by:

Statement of Faith and Baptism:  If you will receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord and follow Him in baptism by immersion, we welcome you into our fellowship.

By Letter:  As a Baptist whose church membership is elsewhere, we will be happy to welcome you into our church family if you feel that this is where God has lead you.  We will gladly take care of any details for transferring your membership.

By Baptism from Another Denomination:  If you know in your heart that you are saved and want to become a member of Second Baptist Church, we invite you to join by baptism.  This gives testimony of your salvation and your obedience to Christ's example in baptism.

By Statement:  In the event that church membership records are not available for a transfer of membership, or if you were once a Baptist Church member but are not presently a member of another denomination, we will accept you upon your statement of these conditions.


You are invited to respond to any of the above by coming forward during the invitation at the close of each worship service.  Of course any decision assumes your commitment to be faithful in prayer and participation in our Lord's work at Second Baptist Church.  Please feel free to make an appointment with Bro. Mike during the week if you would like to discuss membership before joining during a worship service!
