Southminster Presbyterian is an open community church. Visitors and non-member friends are welcome to attend and participate in the worship services and programs of the church for as long and as often as they wish. For most people, however, there comes a time when they wish to make the commitment to become a full member of the congregation, and to do so is an easy process.
There are three ways in which an individual can officially join. For each option, the individual wishing to join must introduce themselves to the elders and share their faith journey.
- Profession of Faith and Baptism (for those who have never been baptized),
- Reaffirmation of Faith (for those who are not currently active members of another Christian church),
- Transfer of Church Letter (for those on the active role of another church, either in this area or elsewhere in the United States).
Regardless of the method of joining, it is the Session of the church, not the congregation that conducts and oversees the process. Anyone wanting additional information about church membership, or who wants to start the process of becoming a member of Southminster Presbyterian Church, is invited to contact the church office and speak to the pastor.
