Interested in becoming a member of Selma Dothan? Wondering what the NEXT STEPS are?
The method of joining our church depends on your personal background. Are you new to the faith? Are you transferring from another Southern Baptist Church? Are you transferring from another Christian denomination? Please read the information below that most closely describes your personal situation.
By Profession of Faith and Baptism:
If you have recently accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior or accepted Him a long time ago but have never followed Him in obedience to be baptized, you can join by profession of faith. You will need to take the Next Steps class and request to be baptized. Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. If you have made this decision please reach out to the church office or one of our pastors.
By Transfer from Another Christian Denomination:
If you have been baptized by immersion, the process is similar to the one below. You will be asked to participate in the Next Steps class and issue a Statement of Faith.
By Transfer from Another Southern Baptist Church:
If you are transferring from another Southern Baptist Church, Please let one of our pastors know your wishes. You will be asked to participate in the Next Steps class and we sill send your former church a request for membership transfer letter.
