CHURCH MEMBERSHIP
We want every member of Munford Baptist Church to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The family of God is one body that spans every generation, ethnic background and life experience. MBC welcomes everyone – from mature disciples looking to be challenged in Bible-based community, to those with no previous religious affiliation.
 
Becoming a member demonstrates your commitment to Christ and to this church. If MBC is your home and you have a desire to impact the lives of those around you and in your community in a mighty way with the message of Jesus, we invite you to join us. We want to help you on your journey to live out God’s plan for you!
 
Membership will help you live out four disciplines essential to your spiritual development:
    * Grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ
    * Connect in Biblical community
    * Serve in your God-given ministry
    * Share the message of Jesus Christ
Members have the privilege of participating in quarterly congregational meetings and voting on important issues like the election of elders, acceptance of new members and the annual budget. Membership is required for some volunteer and teaching positions. We encourage spiritual growth and worship through baptism and giving financially, but these are not requirements for membership.
 
How Do I Become a Member?
One of the primary things you’ll have to do is attend what we like to call a Meaningful Membership Class on a Sunday afternoon immediately after our worship service. This class is actually in the form of a luncheon. What we like to do is invite you stay for a catered meal provided by the church, let Pastor Todd share some of the essentials of church membership, we’ll introduce you to some of the staff and leaders, and then we’ll give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
 
This luncheon isn’t necessarily required, but it is highly encouraged for all prospective members. This is a great way to learn about our vision, values, beliefs and our staff. 
 
* One of the most important aspects of becoming a member at Munford Baptist is an informal meeting with Pastor Todd. This is really an opportunity for you to talk with our pastor and share you life story (testimony) and talk about how you came to know Jesus and share your understanding of the gospel with us.  
 
To schedule a meeting (or discussion) with Pastor Todd, feel free to call the church office or you can speak directly to him on a Sunday morning after our worship gathering.
