becoming a member

Everyone needs to feel like they belong, and our desire is for you to belong with us at Clements Baptist Church. Becoming a member of Clements is an exciting and joyful experience. Before we share how to become a member, you should know why we need to belong to a local church. Hebrews 10: 23- 25 (ESV) reads, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Christ desires for believers to come together and encourage one another until He returns. At Clements you will find just that; a “Place of Hope” where one can be encouraged while making disciples at home and around the world. Now, how does one join? Two options:

option 1:

At the conclusion of all worship services anyone who is not a member is encouraged to come forward to one of our deacons who will meet you at the altar. He and his wife will escort you to a private classroom to explain to you the process of joining our fellowship. 

Membership is acquired by one of three ways:

 #1 – By Profession of Faith and Becoming a Candidate for Baptism: This means that one has trusted Jesus as Savior and is requesting membership in the church upon completion of baptism. Baptism does not save a person; however, Jesus told his followers to be baptized. Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is also a pictorial testimony of what has already taken place in the Christian’s life. After baptism, a person becomes a member of the church

#2 – By Transfer of Letter: This means that one is already a member of another Baptist church of like faith and order and simply requests that his or her letter of membership be transferred to Clements Baptist Church. 

#3 – Statement of Faith: This means that one has been previously baptized and is currently a part of another Baptist church or a church of like faith and order and requests membership based on his or her Statement of Faith. Once Membership has been acquired you will be enrolled into our DNA class and presented to the church the following Sunday. 

option 2:

Not everyone feels comfortable walking up front, so at the conclusion of any worship service feel free to text the word RESPOND to 256.729.1328 and one of our pastors will give you a call and talk with you concerning membership and what is required. 

Once Membership has been acquired you will be enrolled into our DNA class and presented to the church the following Sunday.
