For the preaching
of the cross
is to them that perish
but unto us
which are saved
it is the
power of God.
I Corinthians 1:18 (KJV)
How Do I Join
San Antonio Community Church?
Toward the end of our worship service, following the sermon, we sing our "Hymn of Decision." Pastor Brad invites those who have not yet asked Jesus Christ into their lives to come forward to talk with him at this time. You may have already asked Jesus into your life but never professed it publicly or been baptized as a believer. Pastor will talk to you to confirm that you understand that your salvation is a matter of sincere confession and belief and present you to the church as a candidate for membership upon your obedient baptism as a believer. This is your profession of faith. If you have never committed your life to Jesus, you may speak to Pastor about how to receive salvation and eternal life.
This is also the opportunity for those who have already professed faith and been baptized and who wish to join this local church to come forward and request membership in the church.
To have been a full member of a Southern Baptist church, you will have to have, at some point, publicly professed your faith in Jesus and submitted to baptism by immersion. You may have joined a Bible study or Sunday School class without having ever actually joined the church. If you hold full membership in any other Southern Baptist church, you can join San Antonio Community Church by requesting that we arrange the transfer of your letter of membership to us. The church office will handle this for you.
If you have not previously belonged to a Southern Baptist church but have professed your faith in Jesus Christ and followed that by obediently submitting to biblical baptism, then you may become a member based upon your personal statement of faith and obedient baptism. If you have never been baptized by immersion, that is being submerged in the water in the name of God the Father, Jesus the Son and Holy Spirit as an aware believer, then we would ask that you submit to this biblical mandate for believers.
Pastor Brad will be pleased to answer any questions you have concerning your salvation or church membership. (352) 588-9985
