Why Become a Member? Membership at First Baptist Maggie is the first step towards beginning your ministry and becoming a part of the Maggie community. It is a way to show that you want to be a part of the Church in serving, giving and receiving encouragement, sharing your talents and gifts and enjoying ‘God’s Amazing Grace’ through the love of our wonderful members.
How Do I Join? Most often, someone becomes a candidate for membership by coming forward during the singing of the hymn of commitment towards the end of the worship service and informing the pastor that they would like to become a member.
Ways to Become a Member
- By your profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and receiving believer’s baptism by immersion.
- By ‘transfer of letter’ from another Baptist church.
- By statement of baptism and confession/profession of faith in a church of another tradition or in a church that might no longer have a record of your membership.
- By becoming and Associate Member: An Associate Member retains their membership in another church but indicate their desire to affiliate with us as well, perhaps because they are in our area temporarily or for part of the year.
