Process of Membership at Lynnwood Baptist church
If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our four-step process by which people may join Lynnwood Baptist Church.
All prospective members must attend Membership Class. Upon completion, those who attended all classes are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview which is the second step of the membership process.
In a 45 minute meeting, the prospective member meets with an elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life.
At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the applicant’s testimony will be reviewed. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.
At a Quarterly General Meeting, the elder(s) who conducted an interview briefly describes how the applicants, who desire to be admitted to membership, have come to know the Lord. Questions are fielded, a vote is taken, and with a majority secured, candidates are admitted into membership.
