Any person professing faith in Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior may offer himself as a candidate for membership in this church. All such candidates shall be presented to the church at any regular worship service for membership in any of the following ways:
1. By profession of faith and for baptism.
2. By promise of a letter of recommendation from another Baptist church.
3. By restoration upon a statement of prior conversion experience and scriptural baptism.
All candidates for membership shall be accepted in a watch-care program during which time they will be required to complete a New Members Orientation class and (if applicable) a New Christian Class. Upon completion of this training and approval by the Elders Body, the member shall have the watch-care status removed and enjoy all rights and privileges of covenant membership.
A Covenant Member is expected to fulfill the covenant responsibilities while enjoying the privileges of church membership.
