Membership

What is church membership?

Everyone is welcome to join us at Colwell Baptist Church for any of our services, events or other activities. You don’t need to believe in order to belong…we hope you’ll find that we’re a welcoming community and a safe place for people to explore life’s big questions; questions about life, the Bible, faith, doubt and belief.  


However, those who are certain of their faith and are committed to living as followers of Jesus – who have made a public declaration of their Christian faith – are encouraged to become formal members of the church.

 

Why might I want to become a formal member?

Membership says, “I’m committed to following Jesus and I’m committed to belonging and believing here at Colwell Baptist Church”.  It says, “This is my spiritual family - whom I need and who need me.”  Just like belonging to a family, being a church member brings with it responsibilities as well as a sense of commitment and belonging.


How can I become a member?

If you’ve been attending Colwell Baptist Church for a while and you would like to find out about becoming a member, please ask Dave (the minister) or any of the church deacons.
