Membership

There are both adult and children members of the church.  Any person who is thirteen (13) years or more, who has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and personal Savior and is baptized by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ becomes an Adult member.

Membership shall be maintained by living blameless lives in accordance with the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and in obedience to the doctrines of the Church.

Admittance into full fellowship of the Church is by the ceremony of the Right Hand of Fellowship (Galatians 2:9). And the Right Hand of Fellowship is extended by a Minister or Presiding Elder during a Church service.  Full members of the Church are extended the Right Hand Fellowship providing they meet the following criteria:

i).         A clear testimony of Salvation (publicly confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior)

ii).        Baptism by immersion in the Name of Jesus Christ.

iii).        Undergo a period of teaching. (New Member’s or New Convert’s classes)

Those who are given the Right Hand of Fellowship shall become Communicants.  They may be called into any unpaid office or full-time ministry of the Church.  A person is received into membership of the Church who joins from another denomination with similar beliefs and doctrine and produces a baptismal certificate or satisfactory identity and is received into fellowship by the extension of the Right Hand of Fellowship to him/her.
