Many people ask why should I become a member. Why not just attend? Does becoming a member make any difference?

We encourage you if you are a regular attendee to get involved in areas that you feel you can make a positive contribution to.

Membership goes further. It says, "I belong." It means that you are committing yourself to our church community. It means that you will look out for others and that they will look out for you. It is a way of fully identifying yourself with our mission.

Membership means that you can vote at our business meetings where decisions are made about the direction of the church.

Membership also means that if you have the gift of leadership, you could be a team leader of a ministry area that you are passionate about.

If you would like more information please contact the office and they will let you know when the next membership class will be held.

We look forward to having you serve alongside us!

FBCG Membership Process


When you are baptized you identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ. Baptism symbolizes a life in Christ.

The first step in getting baptized is to attend a baptismal class. You will learn what the Bible teaches about baptism and about First Baptist's baptism process.
