Does one need to be baptized
in order to become part of the church?

Our door is open for everyone who seeks God and is interested in Jesus. Baptism is no requirement for taking part in church events as a visitor.

But it is God alone who can truly add people as members to the church (Acts 2:47). It is not up to us to make that decision. People often decide according to sympathy and other outward criteria, but God adds people to the church who become Christians according to way which is described in the Bible: who believe in Jesus as the Son of God, who want to change their lives, confess him and let themselves be baptized (Acts 2:37-38; Galatians 3:26-27).

If you have become a Christian the Bible way elsewhere, you don't have to be baptized again. Simply let us know about your desire to worship and serve God with us. How about if we sit together and you tell us about how you have come to believe in God and Jesus? In a personal conversation with an open Bible in front of us we can discuss God's will for our lives.
