會員 Membership

Scriptural procedure concerning church membership is outlined in Acts 2:40-47, that is the preaching of the Gospel of Christ, salvation by faith, baptism, and church membership. Anyone desiring to join the church can present himself/herself by any of the following three ways:

By Believer’s Baptism: Any person professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior, giving evidence of regeneration, and examined by church leadership may upon baptism by immersion be received into Southern Oklahoma Chinese Baptist Church membership.

By Statement of Faith: A believer of worthy Christian character who has formerly been saved and scripturally baptized, who is in accord with the view of faith and practice of this church may be received upon Statement of Faith.

By Transfer of Letter: Any believer who holds church membership at a church of like precious faith and comes to unite with Southern Oklahoma Chinese Baptist Church may be received on promise of a letter from his previous church.
