Membership to a grocery store, retailer, gym or club is about what you can get out of it. Membership to a local church is about commitment. But oddly enough, we believe among life's greatest benefits is belonging to a local church where you are expected to give of yourself. And no, we're not talking about paying the church money although generous giving is a way commitment to God's Kingdom is demonstrated.
Membership at First Baptist Icard is a way to demonstrate your commitment to Jesus and His mission of changing the world with the gospel. It gives expression to your identity as belonging to the family of God. It is an outlet to serve others, partnering with followers of Jesus to help each other grow in grace and exalt God in all of life.
To join our church, we require three things:
- A statement of personal commitment of faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.
- Baptism by immersion as a testimony of salvation.
- Participation in the New Members Class, signing and committing to abide by the Church Covenant, and requesting a vote of membership.
