Become a Member
At Acme Missionary Baptist Church we encourage membership. Church Membership is a commitment to love and an investment in God’s people. This commitment is essential for a Christian Growth and in developing a relationship with Jesus. Membership also allows others to invest in you and build relationships that are lacking in casual attendance.
Membership is making a statement that as a Christian, we are identified as a special body of believers and are committing to the unity and work that God is doing in the church. Joining a church demonstrates, outwardly, what has already happened inwardly in our lives. Because we become a part of the Body of Christ by receiving Him as Savior (John 1:12), becoming an active member, is an expression of the Body of Christ.
Scripture makes it clear that God’s plan for His church centers in the local church community. Many scriptures refer to the local church community (Timothy 5:3-16, Romans 16:1-16, Acts 6:1-6, 1 Corinthians 5:1-12,…).
Church membership is for our safety, growth and connection with others who have had a similar experience with Christ so we may be a blessing to each other. If you want to learn more about church membership and membership at Acme Missionary Baptist Church, please attend one of our upcoming services.
To become a member, you must first join the church. You can join with Christian Experience (meaning you have been baptized by immersion), or as a candidate for Baptism. All new members must complete our New Members Class, taught by our Pastor or a delegate of his choosing. Once you have completed New Members Class you are considered a full-fledged member.
