There are many reasons, including both biblical and practical, to be an active member of a local church. Joining a local church indicates your willingness to make a commitment beyond just simply being an attendee.
Can I Become a Member of Gilliam Springs Baptist Church?
There are three ways in which you can become a part of our church family!
1. Salvation and Baptism – By professing your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, then following Him in believers baptism
2. Transfer of Membership – For those that are members of another Southern Baptist Church
3. Statement of Faith – For those that are members of a church that is not Southern Baptist
If you join our church family by transfer of membership or statement of faith, we accept your baptism from another church or denomination if you were baptized by immersion. If you were not baptized by immersion, we would love to speak with you about being baptized.
