If you are interested in joining Claycomo Baptist Church, we invite you to "come forward" during the hymn of invitation at the conclusion of a worship service. The Pastor will talk with you about your decision.
We believe there are two requirements for church membership: salvation and believer’s baptism.
We receive members in one of three ways:
1. By Baptism: upon the profession of your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
a. If you have just become a Christian and have not yet been baptized by immersion...
b. If you are a member of another church, and are a Christian, but have never been baptized by immersion the Pastor will meet with you and schedule a time for your baptism in an upcoming worship service.
2. By Letter: If you are currently a member of another Baptist church, we will request your previous church to send us a letter confirming your membership there.
3. By Statement: when no letter is possible:
a. If you were a member of a Baptist church, but have since joined another denomination.
b. If your previous church records have been lost, or the church disbanded.
c. If you have never been a member of a Baptist church, but have been baptized, by immersion, by a church of like faith and order. Your statement is that you are a Christian and were baptized following your profession of faith, and that you are in agreement with our theology of baptism and salvation.
If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to become a part of our growing family at Claycomo Baptist Church.
