Membership

Commitment to a local church is a requirement for all followers of Jesus. Church membership is an artificial process that reflects an invisible reality of a covenant commitment and unity among God's people that is accomplished through the Holy Spirit.

Upcoming Membership Class:

This class is for all those interested in becoming members or just finding out more about membership.

Membership Class:

  • Membership is a big decision. That's why we offer a two-session membership class. Taking the class does not obligate you to membership in any way. Rather, our goal is to provide you with information about Bethel that will help you make an informed decision about whether you'd like to become a member.
  • Requirements for Membership:

  • Attend the membership class
  • Profess faith in Jesus Christ as personal savior
  • Agree with Bethel Baptist Church affirmation of faith
  • You have been baptized by immersion after becoming a believer (click here for more information)
  • Receive an affirmative vote of the church membership
  • How to become a member:

  • Indicate your interest in membership (to the church office, a pastor, or an elder)
  • Take the membership class
  • Get interviewed by some of our elders about your relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Arrange baptism if necessary
  • The church votes at the next quarterly meeting to affirm you as a member
