MEMBERSHIP WITH CHURCH

Becoming a member of Forrest Burdette is an outward sign of your journey as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  You are saying that I want to grow and live my discipleship and faith with this local body of Christ of the United Methodist tradition.  I want to make Forrest Burdette my church home and plant spiritual roots.  You may join Forrest Burdette is several ways.

PROFESSION OF FAITH

Profession of Faith as a first time commitment to Christ and His church. If you have not been previously baptized, one of the ministers will arrange a time for you to receive the sacrament of baptism.

TRANSFER OF MEMBERSHIP FROM ANOTHER UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

It is not necessary that you have your church letter before being received into membership. The church office will secure a certificate of transfer for you.

TRANSFER OF MEMBERSHIP FROM ANOTHER DENOMINATION

You may join Forrest Burdette from another Christian faith tradition.  A second baptism is not required as we recognize the baptism of all Christian churches.
