Next Steps

Lancaster Baptist Church is a family of individuals who have put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation. If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, it is the most important decision you can ever make, and we would be thrilled to talk to you about it and personally explain what the Bible says about how you can know for sure you are on your way to Heaven when this life is over. If we can talk to you about this, please contact us today, or you can find out more about this important decision by clicking the link below.

3-Become a Member

You can become a member of Lancaster Baptist Church through one of three ways:

Baptism after Salvation:

The Bible instructs every person who has accepted Christ as their personal Saviour to be baptized. It is a public testimony of your faith. When a person is baptized at Lancaster Baptist, they are added to the membership of Lancaster Baptist Church.

Statement of Faith or Transfer of Letter:

If you have already accepted Christ and have been baptized in a Baptist church whose doctrine is in agreement with Lancaster Baptist Church, you may present your testimony of salvation and be voted into membership by your statement of faith or transfer of membership from another Baptist church. You may do this by stepping forward and speaking with a pastor during the invitation in any church service.

Statement of Faith by Baptism:

If you have accepted Christ and have not been baptized in a Baptist church of like faith, to become a member, you will be asked to publicly identify with Christ and the Lancaster Baptist Church by being baptized into our membership. Lancaster Baptist Church is committed to maintaining a doctrinal unity in this day of confusion and doctrinal compromise. If you believe that God has led you to this church, and if you understand that baptism is simply a testimony of your faith, we invite you to identify with Christ and the Lancaster Baptist Church by being baptized as the Lord leads you.
