HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER

A profession of faith is step one in membership.  This profession of faith must be shared with one of the elders during our First Steps Class.  Baptism is required for church membership as we believe this is the believers public profession of faith and first act of Christian obedience.  Baptism is not necessary for salvation but it is necessary for membership. We also ask that all prospective members complete our First Steps class to ensure that their decision is the right one.


You will find more information about our First Steps Class and baptism on this page. 



BAPTISM

Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give sufficient testimony to the basics of Christian beliefs. We baptize by immersion because it is not only the original significance of the word but also best symbolizes the reality to which baptism points—our death and resurrection in Christ.


If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask you to take this step before becoming a Covenant Member. All baptismal candidates are required to attend our forty-five minute baptismal class where we cover the biblical significance of baptism and answer frequently asked questions.  Please click here to register for our next class. 

FIRST STEPS

We require prospective members to attend our First Steps Class. More information concerning this class can be found in the next section of this page.  The final step in becoming a member is to sign the Membership Covenant at the conclusion of the First Steps Class.  Once you fulfill the requirements of membership and sign the covenant, you are considered a Covenant Member.

WHY MEMBERSHIP MATTERS

We’re excited to have you consider Eureka Baptist Church as the place you want to belong. Our First Step Class is where you go to hear about what we believe God is up to in the world, what He is doing at Eureka Baptist Church, and it also provides us an opportunity to get to know you and your story.


The class is held once a quarter on Sunday following the morning service with lunch being provided.  The class will last for an hour and a half broken into two sessions. In session one we will cover our beginnings, beliefs, and behaviors. In session two you will share your story and have an opportunity to ask any questions of our leadership. 


At the conclusion a copy of our Church Covenant will be presented to each participant.  This covenant must be signed and return for membership to be granted. All new covenant members will be presented to the church at our next family gathering.  


In honor of your time we ask that you complete some prescribed reading and the completion of your salvation story prior to your First Steps Class.  All reading material will be sent upon your registration.  Click here to sign up for our next class.
