STEP 1. Register to attend the Membership Class
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN MID-JANUARY
STEP 2. Fill out the Membership Application
You can do this step any time after registering for the class, but it must be completed by September 25.
Before you fill out the Membership Application, you must read the PBC Bylaws and the PBC Doctrinal Statement. At the end of the application you will be asked to check boxes pertaining to these documents. The application will take approximately 30-60 minutes to complete (not including reading the Bylaws and Doctrinal Statement).
You may want to use a computer for filling out the application. It may not go through if using a cell phone or iPad.
STEP 3. Attend the 4 Membership Classes
There is required reading for this class, and we will provide you with the book at no cost. You will receive an email on how to receive the book after you register for the class.
Note: even though you complete the paperwork and attend the classes, you can choose at any time not to become a member.
STEP 4. Attend the 2 Baptism Classes
You will only need to attend the Baptism Class if you have never been baptized.
STEP 5. Membership Interview
You will be contacted by an elder/leader to schedule a time to conduct your membership interview.
STEP 6. Attend the Right Hand of Fellowship Service
This is a special service where we worship the Lord through song, hold baptisms, and extend the right hand of fellowship to you as a new member.
