How to Become a Member

Why become a member?

Membership at Tabernacle Baptist Church:

  • demonstrates your commitment to Jesus Christ
  • provides a place and opportunity for ministry and service
  • enables you to have fellowship with Christian friends and to be cared for by them

How can you join our church?

By Profession of Faith and Baptism

If you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and follow Him in baptism by immersion, we welcome you into our fellowship.

By Letter

As a Baptist whose church membership is elsewhere, should God direct you here, we will be pleased to welcome you into our church family. We will happily take care of details for transferring your membership.

By Statement of Experience

A person may be received upon statement of his or her Christian experience and baptism by immersion.

By Watchcare

A person may keep their membership at their home church and come under the watchcare of this church while residing in this area for a brief time period.

You may express your desire to fulfill any of the above by presenting yourself during the invitation at the close of any worship service. Of course, any decision assumes your commitment to being faithful in prayer and participation in our Lord’s work through Tabernacle Baptist Church.

The pastor or any staff member will be happy to meet with you as a prospective member to discuss your interest in joining the church.
