How to Become a Fairview member

Fairview Baptist Church is a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed to fulfilling the purposes set forth in our Mission Statement. If you desire to join with us and will be supportive of the beliefs, fellowship, and mission of our church, we warmly invite you to become a member. Here are the three steps to becoming a member:

1. Present yourself for membership during any Worship Service when the invitation is given at the end of the message.
Our Pastor will invite those who desire to become members to come to the front of the Church.

2. Express your desire for membership through one of the following means:

Profession of faith
If you have never received Jesus as Savior and Lord and/or never publicly confessed Him, you will be given an opportunity to do so. After your decision has been confirmed, an appointment will be made for your baptism.
 Transfer of membership from another Baptist Church
If you are currently a member of another Baptist Church, of like faith & order, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from that church. Fairview will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter. Statement of faith
If you have previously made a public decision, acknowledging that you have received Christ as your Savior and Lord, we will be happy to receive you. It will be necessary for you to be baptized at Fairview if you have never been baptized Scripturally (as a believer, by immersion, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as a symbol of your salvation).

3. Our Pastor will give you essential information to help you become a fulfilled, functioning member of our church. Our Pastor & Members will help you to begin building relationships in our church and will help you understand all the benefits and responsibilities of membership. So you can begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family of friends.
