CHURCH MEMBERSHIP

Church membership is that deeply spiritual relationship between the local church and a Christian in which the church helps to support and encourage each member as they exercise their faith in practical ways under the nurture and instruction of the church. 

 

It is a spiritual commitment, an agreement upon which prospective members confess faith in Jesus Christ, agree to adhere to the doctrines of the church to the best of their ability, and commit themselves to participating in and fulfilling Christ’s mission in their lives.

 

As Christians, we are each called to serve in the ministry of the gospel.

Fulfilling Christ’s mission as a member of Comfort Baptist Church includes, but is not limited to:

  • Participating in the life of the church by attending worship and other activities in the church.

  • Living as a representative of Christ in personal, private, public, political, vocational, and spiritual areas of life.

  • Sharing the gospel in word and action.

  • Supporting the ministry of the church financially and/or through volunteering of your time.

  • Committing to personal growth through the regular study of God’s Word, attendance at worship gatherings, prayer meetings, and Bible studies, as well as other activities that contribute to spiritual growth.

Becoming a Member of CBC

If you feel God is leading you to join with Comfort Baptist Church in membership, and you are excited and committed to invest yourself with a local body of like-minded believers in order to grow and expand the kingdom of God, you may join the church at the conclusion of any worship service in any of the following ways:

 

  • By Profession of Faith and Request for Baptism:  After professing faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you will be baptized as a symbol of your commitment to obey and follow Him.

  • By Statement of Faith and Request for Baptism:  If you have already placed your faith in Jesus at another church but have not yet been baptized, you may join the church by requesting baptism.                               

  • By Statement of Faith:  If you are already a Christian and have been biblically baptized but have no prior or current church membership in a Baptist church, you may request membership.                                                    

  • By Transfer of Letter:  You can transfer your membership records from another Baptist church.
