The New Testament gives a clear pattern for those whose lives have been changed by Jesus. This is how we break down our steps for membership.
Step 1 -- Believe in Jesus
“…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…” (Acts 16:31) Our first step for membership is believing in Jesus. This belief is more than head knowledge. It is a heart trust. Believing in Jesus means to accept that He is the only Savior and the only way to Heaven. In John chapter 3, Jesus called this being “born again.” If you have never done this, please see one of our pastors. We would love you help you place your faith in Jesus.
Step 2 – Follow in Baptism
“Then they that gladly received his word were baptized…” (Acts 2:41) The second step for membership is baptism. Baptism is not necessary for salvation. It simply is a public profession and identification with Jesus Christ as your Savior. Jesus was baptized and then commanded us to be baptized. Baptism is a picture of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection. This is an easy way to publicly declare your new life in Jesus.
Step 3 – Grow with Believers
“Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them…” Those that believed in Jesus were then baptized and added to the church. The third step is to connect with the family of believers here at Tucson Baptist. This starts with taking our Starting Point class. This class will help you learn more about what God is doing here at Tucson Baptist. After that, you can join one of our Growth Group classes that meet Sunday morning at 9:30. There is a group for you!
