Your First Step: Becoming a Christian
Before anyone needs to worry about coming to First Baptist Church for membership, we want to make sure that you have come to Jesus for salvation. Joining a church is important, and it is a part of God's plan for every Christian, but being a church member won't get anyone into heaven.

Your Next Step: Being Baptized
Baptism is a public profession of your faith in Jesus. In the Bible, after people put their faith in Jesus, they would be baptized in water by immersion--symbolizing the death and resurrection of Jesus--and then accepted into the fellowship of believers (the church of that day). We believe that is still the pattern today. If you have never been baptized by immersion as a symbol of your faith, then we invite you to learn more. If you have, you don't have to be baptized again to join First Baptist Church.
Your Last Step: Becoming a Member
If you're a Christian and you've been baptized and you believe that God wants you to put down roots at First Baptist Church, we would love to get to know you and answer any questions you have about us. Typically, the path toward membership involves
