Perhaps you are wondering how to go about the process of joining
Trinity Baptist Church. The process is pretty straight forward.
Trinity believes in a regenerate church membership; simply speaking,

unite with us.

13 week class taught in the office of the Senior Pastor during the
Sunday School hour. This class will cover topics including Biblical
Christianity, Assurance, and Christian Sanctification. We'll cover the
importance of the local church and church membership and an
introduction to membership at Trinity Baptist Church. We'll look at the
Trinity by-laws and how we function as a local church. The second half
of the 13 weeks will involve a study through our Confession of Faith -
The 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith. These 13 weeks will be a
valuable time for you to become thoroughly acquainted with our

again come before the congregation and they will vote to receive you
as a member. At that time you will be a full member of Trinity Baptist
