Membership does matter at First Baptist Church,
and we want to provide information about what that involves to our newer members, to our guests, and to those who are simply “checking us out.”
We offer an on-going orientation to what membership at First Baptist is all about.
The next Membership Matters class is scheduled in a two-part Wednesday night meeting, January 23 and 30. We meet in Romans Hall S60, which is located in the lower level of the sanctuary, across from the kitchen. Occasionally, the schedule may shift due to holidays, etc., but those changes will be posted on this page.
What We Cover:
Our Salvation – what it means to be a follower of Christ
how to become a member of First Baptist
the meaning of baptism
the meaning of the Lord’s Supper
Our Statements – what we hold in common
our vision and mission statements
how we do worship

how we function – staff, deacons, committees, teams

We encourage new members and those checking us out to attend the class at your convenience. There’s no better way to get acquainted with First Baptist, to meet other newbies, and to begin to feel a part of our family than our Membership Matters class!
