Membership at Oxford Baptist Church

How You May Become a Member

 

       

By Profession of Faith in Christ and Baptism

To be received as a member, individuals must profess Jesus Christ as one’s personal Savior and Lord before the Congregation, requesting baptism by immersion and church membership.

By Letter

As a Baptist whose church membership is elsewhere, upon request, this Congregation will welcome you into her church family, taking care of any appropriate communications necessary for transferring your membership.

By Baptism From Another Denomination

As a Christian whose baptism was by sprinkling or pouring, this congregation will receive you as a member as you request church membership and baptism by immersion.

By Statement

In the event church membership records are not available for a transfer of membership, or if you were once a Baptist church member, we will accept you upon the statement of your faith in Jesus Christ and your baptism by immersion.

You may express your desire to fulfill any of the above by presenting yourself during the invitation at the close of each Worship Service.  While it is not necessary to speak to the pastor prior to requesting membership at the close of the worship service, please know that our pastor is ready to assist you in becoming a Christian, joining the Church, growing in Christ, and serving God through this ministry we have together.

 

You may express your desire to fulfill any of the above by presenting yourself during the invitation at the close of each worship service.  Of course, any decision assumes your commitment to be faithful in prayer and participation in our Lord’s work here at Oxford Baptist Church.
