How to Join

Is God calling you to membership in our church? We welcome all persons who trust in God’s grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the fellowship and ministry of his Church.

You are invited to speak to the Pastor if you are interested in becoming a church member. A new member’s class is typically held a couple of times each year. This informal meeting reviews the history of First Presbyterian Church, summarizes our missional approach to ministry, and goes over the responsibilities of membership. 

Persons enter into active membership in one of the following ways:

  1. Profession of faith and baptism (if not previously baptized)
  2. Certificate of transfer from another Christian Church
  3. Reaffirmation of faith (for persons who have profession and baptism in their background)

New members meet with the Session and answer the following questions in Worship:

Trusting in the gracious mercy of God, do you turn from the ways of sin and renounce evil and its power in the world?

I do.

Do you turn to Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and Savior, trusting in his grace and love?

I do.

Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple, obeying his Word and showing his love?

I will, with God’s help.

Will you be a faithful member of this congregation, share in its worship and ministry through your prayers and gifts, your study and service, and so fulfill your calling to be a disciple of Jesus Christ?

I will with God’s help.

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege!  It is our response of faithfulness which is called forth by God’s gift of grace.
