Becoming a Member

At FBC Ironton, we believe that the New Testament demonstrates that local churches practiced meaningful membership. In addition, we believe membership provides many benefits like allowing church leaders to fulfill their task of shepherding the church, providing the opportunity for spiritual growth under the guidance, accountability, and authority of the church, and challenging believers to use their God-given spiritual gifts alongside others God has placed in the church.

How to pursue membership at FBC Ironton:

1. Introduce

After coming forward during the invitation time of our Sunday morning service, we want to get to know you better by you filling out this Member Introduction Form and participating in an introduction meeting with our pastors.

2. Discover

Periodically, we  offer a “Membership Matters” class to provide more information about our church and what membership entails. This is an opportunity for you to primarily get to know us and can be attended before or after completion of the membership introduction form.

3. Affirm

Upon recommendation from the pastors, the congregation will affirm the Lord’s will in adding you to our membership at our next regularly scheduled members’ meeting.
