  • By transfer of membership from another Baptist church, having
  • already professed faith in Jesus Christ and having been baptized

  • church which practices believer’s baptism.

Trinity Baptist Church believes that the New Testament teaches that church membership is expressed in the following ways:

  •             Faithful participation in worship services
  •             Faithful participation in Bible Study or a small group
  •             Regular and generous giving to support the church’s ministry,
  •             recognizing the tithe (10%) as a guideline for giving
  •             Meaningful service to the Lord and to others through the exercise
  •             of spiritual gifts and abilities
  •             Ministry to others in Christian love
