We believe that membership in the local church is biblical.
As you think about making a decision to join the church, we offer a class that covers what it means to be a Covenant Member, as well as our mission, doctrinal beliefs and theological distinctives. We want you to understand the importance of membership and its necessity before joining the body. There are three steps to becoming a member of PSBC:
WE REQUIRE THAT ALL WHO DESIRE TO BE MEMBERS OF OUR CHURCH BE BAPTIZED BY IMMERSION FOLLOWING CONVERSION. IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BAPTIZED AND YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN WHO WOULD LIKE TO BECOME A MEMBER, WE ASK THAT YOU TAKE THIS STEP FIRST PRIOR TO JOINING THE LOCAL CHURCH.
WE REQUIRE ALL POTENTIAL MEMBERS TO READ “COMMITTING TO ONE ANOTHER: CHURCH MEMBERSHIP” BY BOBBY JAMIESON BEFORE JOINING THE CHURCH. THIS BOOK IS HELPFUL IN LOOKING AT THE NECESSITY, GOAL, AND NATURE OF CHURCH MEMBERSHIP. THESE WILL BE HANDED OUT AT YOUR FIRST MEMBERSHIP MEETING AND WILL BE WALKED THROUGH PRIOR TO JOINING.
FOLLOWING YOUR CLASS & READING, YOU WILL MEET WITH ONE OF OUR ELDERS TO GO THROUGH YOUR BASIC BELIEFS. ONCE THE ELDER APPROVES, YOU WILL THEN BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE CHURCH TO BE VOTED IN BY THE CONGREGATION.
