Interested in Becoming a Member of Goshen Baptist?
Membership is not required to participate in worship and the activities of Goshen Baptist Church. If you choose to become a member of the church, you must profess you faith in Jesus Christ as your personal savior, agree to follow the principles laid down in the Church’s Constitution, and be baptized by immersion. Once a person has done these, they will come before the Pastor and Board of Servants for membership to be confirmed.
If you are already a member of another Baptist Church, or church of like faith and you have been baptized by immersion, you can easily transfer your membership. After writing and receiving a letter asking for your membership to be transferred to Goshen Baptist, and accepting the principles laid down in the Church’s Constitution, you will come before the Pastor and Board of Servants for your membership to be confirmed.
An exception to baptism by immersion may be made for those persons with medical or physical issues. A person may be received by “baptism by desire.”
The Pastor and a Representative of the Board of Servants will introduce you to the Church congregation. It is the responsibility of all members of the church to encourage you and pray for each other.
If anyone is interested in becoming a member of Goshen Baptist Church, please contact the Pastor.
