Question: I want to join, but what do I do first?
Answer: Simply come at the end of one of our services and express your desire to become a member of PBC to our pastor at the front of the sanctuary. This time in our service is called “the invitation”.
Question: What kinds of questions will I be asked?
Answer: In order to join PBC, you must have put your faith in Jesus Christ by receiving Him as your Savior. The pastor will ask if you have ever made such a commitment. If you have not, he will explain to you how you can make this commitment. He will also ask if you have been baptized by immersion.
Question: Will I have to be baptized to become a member?
Answer: Not if you have committed your life to Christ and have been baptized by immersion in a church that has the same doctrinal beliefs as ours in regards to salvation and baptism. If you are unsure the pastor will be glad to help you determine if you need to be baptized.

Answer: No. We will contact your former church, requesting that they transfer your membership to PBC.
Question: What if I have accepted Christ, been
Baptized by immersion, but I am coming from another denomination?
Answer: You may join PBC on your statement of faith and previous baptism. This means you are making a public statement to our church that you have accepted Christ as your Savior, and you have been baptized by immersion.
