How to Join

In 1Corinthians 12:27, Paul wrote to the church at Corinth, "Now you are the body of Christ, and individually members of it." One of the first steps in being a faithful follower of Jesus is to become a vital member of a local church body.  Here at Third Avenue, we take membership in the church seriously.  That's because we believe the church is called "the body of Christ" in the Bible for a reason - we are to be vitally and consciously committed to one another as fellow believers in Jesus, promising to share in one another's joys, to bear each others' burdens and sorrows, and to share life together.

To become a Member of Third Avenue Baptist Church, here's what you'll need to do:

- Be a baptized believer in Jesus Christ

- Attend each of our "Third-in-Four" membership classes, a series of four continually rotating classes that meet on Sundays at 9:30am.

-Be interviewed by one of our pastors

-Be recommended by the pastors of the church

-Be welcomed into membership by vote of the church's members

If you're interested in being a member of the church, talk with one of our pastors.  We'll be glad to help you!
