Church Membership

New Zion Missionary Baptist Church is a body of believers united by our desire to follow Jesus Christ and committed to fulfilling the Great Commission. If you are interested in becoming a member of New Zion, and will be supportive of the beliefs, fellowship, and mission of our church, we would love to have you join us.

Any person may join New Zion if they have:

  • Made profession of faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God
  • Have repented from sin
  • Been baptized by immersion for the remission of sins
  • Attended a New Member Orientation class


Steps to Membership

1. Present yourself for membership

At the end of each worship service, an invitation to discipleship is extended where those who desire to become members can come forward. Express your desire to unite with the Church through one of the following means:

  • Baptism - You have never been saved and you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. You are willing to be baptized in much water by immersion.
  • Letter of Transfer - You are already a member of a church in good standing, and having been led by the Holy Spirit, you wish to transfer your membership by letter.
  • Christian Experience - You are saved and have been baptized, but you are presently not in good standing or fellowship with any church. And having been led by the Holy Spirit, you now wish to become a member of this church on your Christian experience.
  • Watch Care - You will be living in our area temporarily and you wish to be accepted into this fellowship so you can identify with a church and participate in all activities as a regular member without transferring membership from your home church.  Watch Care membership is suitable for college students, military personnel, and people working on a job requiring temporary placement.


2. Attend the New Member Orientation Class

After you’ve completed these steps, we will receive you as a member of New Zion Missionary Baptist Church and you will begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family. We encourage you to get involved. Explore the many ministry opportunities at New Zion and use your God-given gifts and talents to further the work of the Kingdom.
