How to Join

Welcome

As one part of the church of Jesus Christ, we are inspired and guided by Christ’s vision of God’s realm- one that includes all who seek to love God and neighbor.

Second Presbyterian Church welcomes all people.

As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we invite those who respond in trust and obedience to God’s grace in Jesus Christ to become part of the membership and ministry of the church.

We would be pleased to have you join us in our journey of faith, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, economic or family status, ethnic background, mental or physical abilities.

We receive new members at all worship services on Sunday morning. Those who wish to join or those who would like more information about the church are invited to come to the communion table at the close of the service to meet with a minister and elected leaders of the church.

Those wishing to join may be received in one of several ways, described as follows:

Transfer of Letter

If you are presently active in another Christian church, you may join by transferring your membership. We will write to your former church for you, notifying them of your decision to join this church.

Reaffirmation of Faith

If you have been baptized as a member of a Christian church, but have not been active recently, you may join this church by reaffirming questions similar to the ones you answered at your baptism or confirmation and like the ones listed under Profession of Faith.

Profession of Faith and Baptism

If you have never been a member of a Christian church, you may join this church by profession of faith and baptism. You make your profession of faith by answering the following questions:

Do you trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

Will you be a faithful member of this congregation, share in its worship and ministry through your prayers and gifts, your study and service and so fulfill your calling to be a disciple of Jesus Christ?

After answering these questions and being received into the church, a time will be set aside in a future worship service for your baptism.

Affiliate Member

If you are a seasonal or temporary resident of this community, you may become an affiliate member here while maintaining membership in your home church.

Our Pastors invite you to talk with them about your spiritual journey.
