All those interested in becoming Church Members are invited to apply to one of the Pastors for proposal at a Church Meeting.
Applicants must be baptized (see note below) and publicly profess faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour, Lord and God.
Applicants for membership may be accepted, by resolution at a Church Meeting, upon the satisfactory report of two members appointed by the Pastors or MLT as visitors. The visitors shall ascertain applicants’ understanding of, and commitment to, the Church’s constitution.
Where a person is in membership with another church, a letter of transfer should be sought.
Note about baptism:
As a Baptist congregation in the Baptist Family of Churches, we continue to maintain and teach that Baptism is for believers only and that the only valid Baptism is the immersion of believers. At the same time however, the Church may admit as a member, a person who has been baptized but not as a believer, or a person who has been baptized but not by immersion, provided that at the time of application for membership, the person professes Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and signifies that, for them, their baptism symbolized their identification with Christ and with the Church as the body of Christ. In cases where for health reasons immersion is inadvisable or impractical, believers shall be encouraged to be baptized in another appropriate form.
For more information about either baptism or becoming a Church Member please submit an enquiry via the Contact page.
