Means of Joining the Church (Please check one)

Confession of Faith ______(You are coming to publicly profess your faith and receive baptism if you have never been baptized. If you were baptized as an infant and have not been confirmed, you will come by Confession of Faith.) Youth who wish to be confirmed will come by this means.

Reaffirmation of Faith ______(You are coming to re-affirm your faith if you have received baptism and been confirmed in another Christian church/tradition. Usually, you will be coming from a tradition (Roman Catholic, for example) which would not offer a transfer of membership letter.)

Transfer of Membership Letter ______(You are coming from one of our mainline Protestant churches that will transfer a membership letter; if they do not transfer a letter, you’ll be coming by Reaffirmation of Faith.) If coming by Transfer of Membership Letter, please list church/address/phone/email, if you have this information. Our church will write to request an official transfer of letter.

For those coming by Reaffirmation of Faith or Transfer of Letter, where were you baptized? Where were you confirmed? (Place, address and date, if possible.)
