Church Membership

Everyone is welcome to present themselves as a candidate for membership in this church.  To become a member, you must either:

  1. Make a public profession of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and request baptism.  Baptism is by immersion in water during a worship service of the church.
  2. Present yourself as a member of another Baptist church and ask for your membership to be moved to First Baptist Church of Maryville.  We will write your former church to inform them that you are moving your membership and ask them to send us a letter verifying your membership of that church.
  3. Make a statement of your previous profession of faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord and of your believer's baptism by immersion from another church of like faith and order.

Once you decide that God is leading you to join the church, please come forward and speak to a pastor during the invitation time of any church service. You may either print and complete the application below and bring it with you or complete a new card when you come forward.  Following your public request for membership, you will be formally received at a quarterly business meeting by a majority vote of members present and voting.

If you would like to speak to a pastor about making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior or regarding another membership question, please contact the church office and schedule an appointment with a pastor.  The church office phone number is 982-5531.
