One of the rich joys of our church is its emphasis on membership. We believe that while membership in a local church is a command for Believers to obey, it is also a kind gift from God. We believe that membership affords the opportunity to truly fulfill the prayer of Christ in John 17:20-23, to obey the commands of Hebrews 10:23-25, and to live out today what we see of the first church in Acts 2:42-46.
To help those who are interested in pursuing church membership, we offer a 6-week Membership Class each fall and spring. This class introduces the student to our church’s philosophy of membership, while interacting with an Elder in a smaller setting. Class topics include, but are not limited to, Is Membership Biblical?, Requirements for Membership, and Committed Church Membership.
This 6-week class is required for church membership, but it is not expected that everyone who attends will join the church; everyone is welcome to come and worship with us and receive the Word.
Steps to join Kennerly Road Baptist Church:
- Attend the Membership Class
- Communicate your desire to join the church to an Elder
- Have an interview meeting with an Elder
- Be baptized by immersion after your conversion (for those who haven’t been previously baptized in Believer’s Baptism)
- Be presented to the church for membership
