Becoming a Member

SPRING BRANCH MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH is delighted you want to become a part of our spiritual family.  There are four ways you can join our church:
 
  • By Baptism:  Any person professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ may be received as a candidate for Baptism.  Following completion of new member orientation classes, the candidate will be eligible for Baptism by Immersion.
 
  • By Letter:  Any believer who is in accord with the views of faith and the principles of this Church may be received by letter from any other Christian Church, providing he or she has been Baptized by Immersion.  The Pastor and the clerk of the Church from which the person is leaving must sign this letter.
 
  • By Experience:  A believer who has formerly been a member of a Christian Church, who was Baptized by Immersion and who does not present a letter from that Church, but who is in accord with the views of faith and principles of this Church, may be received upon statement of experience.
 
  • By Restoration:  Any believer whose membership has terminated for any reason may be restored to membership upon personal testimony of a change of heart, Christian conduct, spiritual faith and/or a desire to reunite with this Church (Romans 10:9-10)
 
 
Upon completion of Baptism by Immersion and/or the required new member orientation classes, all candidates for membership shall be eligible for the Right Hand of Fellowship.  The membership of this Church shall consist of any person professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior (Romans 10:9-10), showing evidence of a change of heart, and adopting views of faith and practices held by the Church.  The Church shall not discriminate against persons seeking membership based upon sex, race, national origin, color disabilities, or station in life.
