Membership with Expectations

 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but [c]an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.
— James 1:22-25


Church membership is essential to a healthy walk with God. We are obligated and priviledged to work together to reach the world for Christ. Part of that responsibility is to maintain doctrinal integrity so that we may always embrace the enduring and unchanging message of Christ Jesus. We also must be committed to making disciples. This leads us to the importance of training God filled leaders and realizing that we can NOT simply sit in church and sing about a life we do not live. We must pursue living a missional life for Christ. We believe accountability and encouragement in living a life of service. As part of of our accountability process, we have two classifications of membership; Members in Practice and Members in Fellowship. To find out more about church membership feel free to contact us and we would love to discuss how you can become part of the First Baptist family.
