From the birth of the church recorded in Acts 2, we see that newly baptized believers were added to the church daily. God never intended for Christians to “go it alone” or to be detached from a local church. They are to be vitally connected to a church family for worship, service, discipleship, fellowship, missions, care and spiritually accountability. 1 Corinthians 12 teaches that the local church has many members that are spiritually joined together in the body of Christ. It’s impossible to fulfill all these biblical expectations for the church
unless there is a clear understanding of which people are actually make up each local church.
At First Baptist Choctaw, we believe that covenant church membership is both a privilege and a responsibility. We believe that God sovereignly builds our church and intentionally adds people to our fellowship. If God calls you to become part of the FBCC family, we have two main requirements for membership. First, you must trust Jesus Christ as your Savior. Second, you must be scripturally baptized by immersion as a testimony of your salvation.
To help new and potential members get acquainted with our leaders, beliefs, ministries, fellowship and growth opportunities, we encourage them to tend our new members’ class that is offered periodically throughout the year.
