How do I become a member?
Joining A Presbyterian Church
There is nothing better than the feeling of community that you experience as a church member! Warm and lasting friendships are often forged between people who were complete strangers prior to joining a congregation for worship. When the regular attendance and welcoming prompt us to become a member of such a congregation there are three ways you can join a Presbyterian Church. They are:
Profession of Faith for people who have never professed their belief in God, joined a church or been baptized.
Re-affirmation of Faith for people who have been church members previously but have been inactive to the point of being dropped from the church roles or been in a church that does not send out letters of transfer for members wanting to change churches.
Letter of Transfer for people who are in good standing in another church and such a letter allows for the validation of that status.
No matter which way you choose to unite with a Presbyterian Church, the church Session will meet with you and after prayerful discussion vote to accept you. At that time there is usually a future Sunday chosen for the pastor to recognize you and the congregation to have an opportunity to welcome you.
Let BPC be your church family!
