One of the basic understandings among Baptists, and many other denominations, is that at some point a true and faithful follower of Jesus Christ will unite with a local body of believers of like faith and practice. We call it “joining the church” or “becoming a member.”
A person can become a member of FBG when he or she:
Has made a personal profession of faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.
Has been baptized by immersion as a testimony of his or her salvation.
