Joining FBC Dover
Everyone is welcome to attend FBC Dover; however, membership is reserved for those who are baptized believers in Jesus. Membership is open to all who have believed the message of the Gospel, have trusted in Jesus alone for their salvation, and have been baptized by immersion.
After attending, if you decide you would like to become a member simply meet the Pastor at the front of the church at the conclusion of a worship service during the invitation.
Once you have trusted in Jesus for your salvation, the next step is to be baptized (Acts 8:36-37; 9:18; 10:47; 16:33). If you have not been baptized before, you would join by baptism.
Christians with membership in another denomination also join by baptism. This signifies agreement with the doctrine of FBC Dover.
By Transfer of Letter
If you are a member of a Southern or Missionary Baptist Church, you can join by letter. The church office will contact the church where you currently are a member. Upon verification of your membership, it will be transfered to FBC Dover.
By Statement of Faith
If you are a member of a Southern or Missionary Baptist Church and are unable to furnish a letter, you can join by statement of faith by sharing your circumstances with the Pastor.
