Membership at Emmanuel

 

At Emmanuel Baptist Church, church membership is open to any person publicly professing his/her faith in Jesus Christ as Membership At Emmanuel Lord and Saviour, followed by immersion baptism and agreement to the covenant, doctrinal and constitutional statement of the church.

 

A person may be received into membership by baptism, by an officially written transfer of membership from another church of like faith, or by an affirmation of their faith and biblical baptism and agreement to the covenant, doctrinal and constitutional statement of the church.

 

We believe that membership/ joining with a New Testament Church is the biblical pattern, whereby we can exercise our gifts, talents and abilities together for the glory of God and the edifying of the saints of God.

 

1Corinthians 12:12  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
