HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
The first step for becoming a member of First Baptist Church of Eaton Rapids is to attend a membership class. This class includes explanations of what it means to be a Christian, how to prepare a written testimony of your conversion to Christ, what we as a church believe, how we handle conflict, how we use our spiritual gifts, and a description of the benefits and expectations for covenant membership.
This class is the first requirement for membership and is also an opportunity to learn about First Baptist Church.
After completing the class, those who are ready may proceed through the following steps:
- Sign the Church Covenant, a definition of how we are committed to living life together.
- Submit a written testimony of your conversion to Christ.
- Take part in a membership interview with the elders, where membership candidates have an opportunity to review their written conversion testimony and share any previous experiences of church membership.
- As a believer, follow the Lord in water baptism by immersion if they have not yet done so.
