How to Join Mount Airy Church

Mount Airy Baptist Church is a family of believers who have come together to follow Jesus Christ and to be demonstrative in showing our love for God and service to humanity. Anyone who will be in agreement with our beliefs and mission may present themselves for membership in one of the following ways:
 
As A New Convert (Candidate for Baptism)
If you confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, our church will receive you as a candidate for baptism by immersion. Baptism is the act of totally immersing a person in water in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. 
 
By transfer of your membership or by Christian Experience
Candidates desiring to transfer membership from another church can submit a letter of transfer from previous church and Pastor if available for consideration. 
 
By restoration of your membership
Persons who have ceased to contribute to the church and have ceased to attend services may have their membership restored by approval of the church body and completion of the New Members’ Class. 
 
By a temporary membership or under Watch Care
These individuals are members of another church yet want to join our church family while they are living in our community. While “Watch Care” membership allows for all the privileges of fellowship and worship, one may not serve in an elected position of leadership or vote in church business sessions.  
 
At the conclusion of each worship service at Mount Airy Baptist Church , we have an invitation of fellowship. During that invitation period, our pastor will question people who come forward about their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Following their response, a vote will be taken by the Church body to accept your request for membership.
