HOW DO I JOIN?
Calvary is a church family linked together by a common belief about Jesus and His church. If you’re wanting to be a part of that family, you can begin that process in one of the following three ways:
Baptism - For persons who have been saved by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being baptized by immersion.
Letter from another Baptist church - and are members in good standing of another Baptist church which will transfer them by letter to Calvary Baptist Church.
Statement of Faith - For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation, but are not a member of another Baptist church.
Many people choose to meet with a pastor to ask questions, but some simply choose to walk the aisle at the end of a worship service to declare their desire to be members. There is no wrong way to start the process of membership!
Once you’ve initiated that request with the church, you’ll be enrolled in Discovering Calvary. Discovering Calvary is a class designed for those who are ready or who are exploring new membership. It meets quarterly after the 10:30am service and is done over lunch. After you’ve completed the Discovering Calvary class—and we’ve received your letter of transfer, statement of faith, or completion of baptism—the final step is to present your name to the church in one of our quarterly business meetings. At that time the church will vote to affirm you as a member and you’ll be officially welcomed into the family!
