Church Membership


The membership of this church shall be composed of persons who have professed the Lord Jesus as Savior, and who have followed the Lord in believer's baptism by immersion and have been received by vote of this church.  Members are expected to abide by the constitution, By-Laws and covenant of this church.  New members are encouraged to attend the New Members Class of our church at which time they will receive a copy of this document and be instructed in the policy of Macedonia Baptist Church.

A member of another Baptist church of like faith and order may be accepted upon a letter of transferal from the church.

Anyone who had been a member of a Baptist church of like faith and order and, in consequence of peculiar circumstances has no regular letter of transferal, may be received into our fellowship upon a satisfactory statement of Christian experience.

A member of another Christian church who has not been immersed may be accepted as a member upon statement by such member of past Christian experience and upon baptism by immersion.

Anyone who has been baptized by immersion in another evangelical church and who satisfies the pastor and deacons and/or Yokefellows that he subscribes to the doctrines and covenant of this church may be accepted as a member.
