The key requirement for membership in the First Church of Christ is a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  The Bible teaches us how to enter into that relationship.

Belief in Jesus as the One who saves you from your sin and its punishment and to whom you have surrendered your life is the most important step you can take in life. It leads to salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Profession of that belief is the outflow of being unashamed of Jesus. It is not simply "preaching." It is the willingness and ability, in conversation, to speak of your faith in Jesus. It is also a biblical mandate for salvation. (Romans 10:9)

Turning away from a self-centered, sinful life describes the biblical word "repentance." It is also an expectation (Acts 3:19).

Baptism, or immersion into Jesus is the moment God applies His saving grace to your life. (Acts 2:38)

Anyone who has entered into this relationship with God through Jesus is eligible for membership in the First Church of Christ.  You can reach us through our contact page, or call us anytime.  There is also an opportunity at the close of every service to express your desire to join the church of to enter into that relationship with God throug Jesus.
