1- Have a Relationship With God
First Baptist Church is a family of individuals who have put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation. If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, it is the most important decision you can ever make, and we would be thrilled to talk to you about it and personally explain what the Bible says about how you can know for sure you are on your way to Heaven when this life is over. If we can talk to you about this, please contact us today
2- Understand Our Purpose and Beliefs
First Baptist Church is a biblical Baptist church with the desire to be ONE church – in our faith, in our family, and in our focus. You can find out more about our purpose by following the link below. We are also united in our belief about basic truths from the Bible. You can read about the Bible truths we teach and believe by visiting our Purpose & Beliefs page.
3- Three Ways to Join the FBC Family
Baptism after Salvation:
After you have accepted Christ as your personal Saviour, you may follow God’s simple command of being baptized. Baptism is not necessary for salvation; it is simply a public testimony of your faith. As you follow Christ in baptism you will be added as a member of First Baptist Church.
Statement of Faith or Transfer of Letter:
If you have already accepted Christ and have been baptized in a Baptist church whose doctrine is in agreement with First Baptist Church, you may present your testimony of salvation and be voted into membership by your statement of faith or transfer of membership from another Baptist church. You may do this by stepping forward and speaking with a worker during the invitation at the conclusion of any church service.
Statement of Faith by Baptism:
If you have accepted Christ and have not been baptized in a Baptist church of like faith, you will be asked to publicly identify with Christ and the First Baptist Church by being baptized into our membership. This is also true if your mode of baptism was other than immersion, or if the doctrine was different in your previous church. First Baptist Church is committed to maintaining a doctrinal unity in this day of confusion and doctrinal compromise. If you believe that God has led you to this church, and if you understand that baptism is simply a testimony of your faith, we invite you to identify with Christ and the First Baptist Church by being baptized as the Lord leads you.
