We hold classes at FBC to help give prospective members a chance to learn more about us, what we believe, and consider if they would like to be part of the assembly here. These membership classes will be held as needed.
We believe Local Church membership matters! The translated word “Church”, is the word “ekklesia” in the Greek New Testament. Quite literally, it means “Assembly”, or a gathering together. Let that sink in! With the advancement of internet and live streaming technology, God's people are increasingly living with a “Universal Church” attitude. On the surface it sounds great, “we’re all one big family!” And it is great! Only God can unite every tribe tounge and nation to love eachother and get along!
Although the doctrine of the Universal Church is a sound doctrine, a commitment to a local assembly is everywhere assumed and expected in the New Testament. The assembly is to be a family who know, love, laugh and bear one anothers burdens (Heb. 10:25; Romans 12:4-8; Galatians 6:1-10).
"The membership of this church shall consist of persons who confess faith in Jesus Christ as personal Savior, who give evidence of regeneration by a life consistent with their profession, who have been baptized by immersion after their profession of faith, who wholeheartedly believe in the Christian faith as revealed in the Bible, who adhere to the teaching of Scripture as expressed in the Statement of Faith, and who have completed the procedure for becoming a member and maintain the requirements of membership as set forth in the Bylaws."
