Membership and Baptism

Membership

Grace Bible Church encourages, but does not require, membership. The preferred pathway toward membership is for interested persons to meet our pastor at a Pastor’s Reception, and then attend the New Member Workshop

Eligibility

Any person, who believes in Jesus Christ as Savior and has been baptized, may be considered for church membership. Persons at any age who have made a confession of faith in Christ are eligible to be considered for membership by the Elder Board. Only members who are at least 18 years old may vote.

Procedure

The first step for a person desiring membership is to attend a New Members workshop, where they learn about the values and beliefs of Grace Bible Church. At the conclusion of the workshop, each individual is given the opportunity to continue the membership process by agreeing to the expectations of being a member. After the New Member workshop, individuals will be scheduled for an interview so the leadership of the church can become acquainted with them.

Baptism

We practice full immersion, administered to those individuals who have made a personal profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism does not save a person, but is a public testimony of salvation. Everyone who believes in Christ as their savior is encouraged to observe this ordinance. Public baptisms are held monthly.
