How Can I Become a Member?
You can present yourself for membership at East Naples Baptist Church in one of the following ways:
- By receiving Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and being baptized by immersion.†
- Transfer of your letter from another Southern Baptist church.
- Statement of faith where you give testimony that you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and have been baptized by immersion in a church like East Naples Baptist Church.
- Dual membership—This form of membership allows for seasonal residents of our area to be part of this local fellowship.
Any of the above makes you a "candidate for membership." An interview with one of our ministers, completion of the membership class and participation in our Sunday School and worship services allows your name to be presented to the church body for final approval.
