Membership

WHY BECOME A MEMBER?

Becoming a member of a local church once you have become a follower of Jesus is an extremely important step in your walk with God.  Elam Baptist offers membership for those interested in joining us and who have professed faith in Jesus.

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER?

  1.  Any person may offer himself or herself as a candidate of membership in this church in any of the following ways:

             a.  by profession of faith in Jesus Christ and for baptism;

             b.  by promise of a letter of recommendation from another church of like faith and order; and

  c.  by statement of prior conversion experience and having been baptized by another church of like faith and order.

  2.  A candidate may become a member only after having repented of his/her sins and having received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

New Members Class:

A new members class will be offered several times a year for new members and those thinking about membership at Elam. The class offers an opportunity for individuals to learn about the church and way they can become involved in our various ministries.
