How to Become a Member

First Baptist Church - Broussard, Louisiana


We are a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed
to fulfilling the purposes set forth in our Mission Statement.  

If you desire to join with us and will be supportive of the beliefs, fellowship, and mission of our church, we warmly invite you to become a member. 

 

Here are the three steps to becoming a member.

  1. Present yourself for membership during any Worship Service when the invitation is given at the end of the message.  
    Our Pastor will invite those who desire to become members to come to the front of the Worship Center and will greet you and share with you about your decision.
  2. Express your desire for membership through one of the following means:
    • Profession of faith
      If you have never received Jesus as Saviour and Lord and/or never publicly confessed Him, you will be given an opportunity to do so.  After your decision has been confirmed, an appointment will be made for your baptism at First Baptist Church Broussard.
    • Transfer of membership from another Southern Baptist Church
      If you are currently a member of another Southern Baptist Church, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from that church.  We will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter.
    • Statement of faith
      If you have previously made a public decision, acknowledging that you have received Christ as your Savior and Lord, we will be happy to receive you.  It will be necessary for you to be baptized at First Baptist Church - Broussard, if you have never been baptized Scripturally (as a believer, by immersion, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as a symbol of your salvation).
  3.  Join one of our small group Bible Studies
    These classes for members will give you essential information to help you become
    a fulfilled, functioning member of our church.  The classes will show you how to begin building relationships in our church and will help you understand all the benefits and responsibilities of membership.

    After you've completed these steps, we will joyfully receive you as a member of First Baptist Church of Broussard and you will begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family of friends.
