There are 5 ways to officially join Union Baptist Church:  

BAPTISM – Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony to his or faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church ordinance, it is prerequisite to the privileges of church membership and to the Lord's Supper. If you would like to join by Baptism, this is your selection.

RESTORATION – Restoration is an abundant theme throughout Holy Scripture. It repeatedly discloses how relationships renewed and revived in the faith family pleases the Heavenly Father.  Reconnecting with a community of faith through repentance or relocation brings joy and new life to the host body as well as to the new member. If you want to unite with Union Baptist through restoration, this selection is for you. 

LETTER – You may have moved from another location or you may be a member of another church that has written a letter on your behalf. If you are accompanied by an official corresponding document that signifies your peaceful standing and harmonious separation from your former home church, this selection is for you.

WATCH CARE- You may only be in the area for a temporary period of time, and want to remain a member of your current church home, however you need a temporary home base to be spiritually fed and watched over by our Pastor and congregation.  As a worshipping consumer who desires official fellowship and care, with only a limited association in sight, Watch Care is the more suited position for your official time in membership.  Should Watchcare be your choice, this selection is for you.

CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE – You may be an experienced Christian, looking for a church home and you have made a decision that Union Baptist is the home you are looking for.  If you would like to join as a member with Christian experience, this selection is for you.
