How To Become A Church Member

Elvins Baptist Church is a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed to fulfilling the purposes set forth in Holy Scripture. If you feel that God is leading you to join with us and support our beliefs and mission, we warmly invite you to become a member. Here are the three steps to becoming a member: 


1) Present yourself for membership during any Worship Service when the invitation is given at the end of the message. 


Our Pastor will invite those who desire to become members of Elvins Baptist to come to the front of the sanctuary. This is typically done at the conclusion of a worship service. He will greet you and may introduce you to a friend, who may accompany you to a quieter place where you will be guided in your decision. 


2) Express your desire for membership through one of the following ways: 


Profession of Faith 

If you have never received Jesus as Savior and Lord and/or never publicly confessed Him, you will be given an opportunity to do so. After your decision has been confirmed, an appointment will be made for your baptism at Elvins Baptist. 


Transfer membership from another Southern Baptist Church

If you are currently a member of a Southern Baptist Church, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from that church. Our Clerk will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter. 


Statement of Faith

If you have previously made a public decision, acknowledging that you have received Christ as your Savior and Lord, we will be happy to receive you. Our Pastor will need to discuss your experience to determine whether you should baptized at Elvins Baptist. We do not discount other traditions, but if you have never been baptized as a believer, and by immersion, you will want to use the ordinance of baptism as a way to declare your salvation to the Church. 


3) Assignment to a Sunday School Class. 


Regular fellowship in a Sunday School class will provide you with essential information designed to help you become a fulfilled, functioning member of our church. This class will also show you how to begin building relationships in our church, and will help you understand all the benefits and responsibilities of membership.After you’ve completed these steps, we will joyfully receive you as a member of Elvins Baptist Church and you will begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family of friends.
