How does membership happen?
There are some “minimum requirements” for membership in any church—and that includes Fellowship Greenville.
Believe in Jesus Christ—By this, we mean a personal, trusting relationship with him. Before belonging to a local church, you need to consider whether you belong to Jesus.
Be baptized—Just as membership is a public declaration of belonging to a local body of believers, baptism is a public declaration of belonging to Jesus. Since baptism is publicly saying you belong to Jesus, we believe that baptism should happen after someone puts their personal faith in Jesus. Though we only practice baptism by immersion, if you have been baptized by other means after trusting in Jesus, we do not require you to be baptized again.
Attend a membership class—When considering committing yourself to a group of people, it’s good to ask, “What am I committing myself to?” We hope our membership class has helped to answer that question.
Be interviewed by a Pastor or Elder—This gives you and the leadership of Fellowship Greenville a chance to get to know each other. We want to hear your personal story, and we want you to know that we are approachable and value you as an individual. (This step happens at the end of your membership class.)
Sign the membership covenant—By signing the membership covenant, you express your desire to enter into a bond with other believers for mutual growth and service. Our commitment is to love one another as Christ has loved us.
