Joining Gillis

Membership is open to anyone who has made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

how to join

At each of our worship services, we give you the opportunity to join the Gillis Family. Following the pastor's message, he will lead the congregation in a prayer and extend an invitation to those seeking a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and/or to those seeking membership in the Gillis family.

Why Join?

At FBC Gillis, we recognize the need for formal membership. We believe formal membership in a local church is important for four reasons.

Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church. Ephesians 5:25 states, “Christ loved the church, and gave His life for her.” Membership in a local church is an important step in demonstrating our commitment to Christ.

Cultural Reason: We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything... a job, a marriage or family. This attitude has produced a generation of "church hoppers and shoppers." Membership swims against the current of America’s consumer mentality and is an antidote to society. Membership sets us apart from the culture, allowing us to preserve our distinctive Christian beliefs and values.

Practical Reason: Membership identifies our community and family. It defines who can be entrusted with positions of leadership within the church.

Personal Reason: Membership produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. A person cannot be accountable when they are not committed to any specific church family.

As you visit our church, we pray that you will consider all the benefits and privileges of membership to a local community of believers. Our prayer is that you will join us in our commitment to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
