Membership

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER OF
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF SEYMOUR
 
First Baptist Church is a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed to fulfilling the purposes set forth in our Mission Statement. If you desire to join with us and will be supportive of the beliefs, fellowship and mission of our church, we warmly invite you to become a member. There are two steps:
 
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 First Baptist to come to the front of the Worship Center. 
 
2.  Express your desire for membership through one of the following means:
    
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 First Baptist Church.
 
Transfer of Membership from Another Southern Baptist Church – If you are currently a member of another Southern Baptist Church, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from that church. First Baptist will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter.
 
Statement of Faith – If you know in your heart that you have previously experienced salvation by receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord, we will be happy to receive you. It will be necessary for you to be baptized at First Baptist if you have never been baptized by immersion after your salvation experience or if you were baptized in a church which holds a different view of salvation, baptism, or eternal security than First Baptist.
  
After you have completed two steps, we will joyfully receive you as a member of First Baptist Church and you will begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family of friends.
