HOW TO JOIN THE CHURCH

Step 2

Tell the Pastor that you are wanting to join the church by one of the following ways.

  • By Letter: The last church of which you were a member was Baptist.
  • By Statement: The last church of which you were a member was a Bible church or a non-denominational church.
  • By Baptism: You are professing faith, and/or have never been baptized in a Baptist, Bible, or non-denominational church.

Step 3

When available, attend a 2 & 1/2 hour church membership class, in which we will go over what it means to be a member of FBC Rockwall and answer any question you might have. Then, if necessary, proceed forth in baptism.

We believe in the power of prayer
