Interested in becoming a member of our church?
We understand that the first step can be the hardest, but we want to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
The First Step
First, schedule a time to sit down and talk with the pastor, at your convenience of course. This serves two purposes. For starters, it allows you and the pastor to get to know each other better. More importantly, it allows you the opportunity to share how you came to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
After that, we'll ask you to read and affirm our statement of faith, the Baptist Faith & Message 2000, and our other governing documents. This will give you a good idea of what we believe as a church and ensure that we are doctrinally in agreement. You'll also have a follow-up meeting with our pastor to ask any remaining questions about what it means to be a member of SNBC.
The Final Step
Once these steps are completed, you'll be asked to attend a members’ meeting where you will stand before the congregation and affirm your personal trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life. Afterward, the church will vote on receiving you as a new member of our church family.
Following the church's affirmation, we will welcome you into our church family!
