Becoming a Member
We welcome all who have trusted in Christ alone for the forgiveness of their sins to attend Parkview Baptist Church. We also welcome those who are seeking such a relationship but have not yet trusted Christ. Yet for those who have trusted in Christ, who agree with the doctrinal position and values of our church, and who desire to make Parkview Baptist Church their home, we highly recommend church membership. Membership is a more formal relationship between a person and a local church body. By becoming a member, you will be able to vote on key decisions facing our church and will be able to participate in leadership in our ministries.
1. Realize that we are separated from Christ because of our sin. (Romans 3:23)
2. Understand that we can do nothing to save ourselves… to make ourselves right before a Holy God. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
3. Realize that Christ came, lived and died to pay the penalty for our sin – the penalty that we should rightly be paying for all eternity. (1 Peter 3:18)
4. Call out to Him in humble trust and dependency as our hope of salvation and be willing to follow Him as the Lord and Master of our lives. (Romans 10:13, John 10:27-28)
Please ask our staff about our orientation classes if membership is desired.
