Membership

We receive members into our family in the following ways.  
 
On Profession of Faith
You may come confessing your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Your baptism will be scheduled as soon as possible.

By Transfer of Letter
You may become a member of our church by letter if you are presently a member of another Baptist church. Simply state that when you come forward during the invitation.

By Statement of Faith
If you have previously been a member of a Baptist church but you are presently a member of another denomination, or if you have been immersed in another church, you may become a part of us by a statement of your faith. 

By Baptism From Another Denomination
If you are a Christian coming from another denomination but have not been immersed, you may come for baptism into our church.  (This is in no way intended to question your prior Christian commitment, but is meant as a symbol of your identification with our church's beliefs and practice.)

To Join Morning Star
  • Present yourself for membership by coming forward during the invitation time of a regular worship service to share your desire with the Pastor. We have counselors who will talk with you and complete a membership card.
  • Attend our membership and orientation class, New Members class. Adults who join the church are expected to attend our orientation class.
  • You may present yourself for membership and then complete New Members class then present yourself for membership.
 
Why we ask adults to complete New Members class
  1. We want to help you “Find Family” and “Follow Jesus.” The quickest way to help you on your spiritual journey is to let you know about the church and the opportunities that are available.
  2. We want to adequately inform new members and prospective members about the church’s purpose, beliefs, and ministries. Attendance at “New Members” class is mandatory because we want to assist new members in becoming involved in worship as well as ministry . Even though you may have been a member of another Baptist church, our church is not exactly the same.
  3. Churches that have clear and high expectations of members are more successful in achieving their purposes.
