The most important decision a person can make in their lifetime is the decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. The Bible makes it clear in Romans 3:23 that all people are sinners. We have all told lies, stolen things, disobeyed parents or broken God’s Commandments in other ways. There is no way a righteous God could let sinners like us into heaven. The Bible says in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death. We have failed so miserably in our lives that we deserve death. However, God saw our hopeless condition and provided a gift to change things. Romans 5:8 says that even while we were still sinners, Jesus Christ died for us. God sent His Son to take the penalty for our sin and at the same time gave us righteousness. It is not something we deserve, but because of God’s grace we can be forgiven.
If you will say that you are sorry for your sin, He will help you repent and turn your life around. When you say with your own words that you want Jesus to become your Savior, He will.
The way to join Clyde’s Chapel Baptist Church is by profession of faith and baptism by immersion. We invite new believers to come forward at the end of the worship service to publicly acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Savior. Baptism will be scheduled another Sunday, giving the new member the opportunity to invite family and friends to be a part of the special event.
Another way to join Clyde’s Chapel is by transfer of letter from another Baptist church. Those joining in this manner come forward at invitation time and present themselves to the pastor to become new members. The church clerk will fill out information and write to the former church asking them to send membership to our church.
Those who join Clyde’s Chapel having membership in another denomination may come by Statement of Faith. This is giving testimony of their faith in Jesus Christ and a desire to become part of the church family here. Those who have not been baptized by immersion would be baptized at a later date. The former church would be notified about your new church family.
Our church is always excited to have new people come and join our fellowship. If you have discovered us on the web, now come visit us in person. Connect with us at CCBC and be a part of our church family.
