We believe that the purpose of the church is not primarily about personal growth. We believe the purpose of the church is about God’s reputation (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). And because we hold God’s reputation in high regard, we hold the issue of church membership in high regard.
Scripture clearly indicates that God wants every Christian to become a member of a local church. Therefore, we invite you to take time to get to know our church, learn how we are fulfilling Christ’s command to make disciples, and see how we love and relate to one another in daily life.
If you are interested in becoming a member, we invite you to complete our membership process. During this time you will learn more about our church’s vision, mission, values, and about what it means to be a member of Philadelphia Baptist Church. Participating in this process will not obligate you to become a member. You can find the next scheduled New Member Fellowship on our Events page. Then simply submit this form or let an elder know if you'd like to attend.
If you have questions or would like to learn more about the importance of church membership, please contact one of our elders. We would be happy to discuss any concerns you may have. We also recommend resources such as Church Membership by Jonathan Leeman and What Is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti Anyabwile.
