Membership

 

MembershipIf you are interested in knowing more about the Findlay First Presbyterian Church family, you are invited to explore church membership with one of our pastors or a member of the Connectional Ministries (Membership & Evangelism) Committee.

Paths to Membership

There are four ways to become a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Findlay, Ohio:

  • by Profession of Faith
  • by Re-affirmation of Faith
  • by Transfer of Certificate or Letter of Transfer
  • as an Affiliate Member

Profession of Faith

During the membership process, if you have never been a member of a Christian church, you join by answering in the affirmative to the following questions:

  • Is Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior?
  • Do you trust in Him?
  • Will you be a faithful disciple obeying His Word and showing His love?
  • Will you be a faithful member of this congregation and will you seek the fellowship of the church wherever you may be?

The Session then receives you into membership. You will then be introduced to the congregation at a subsequent worship service. If you have not been baptized previously, baptism will be administered in the same service. The confirmation class for teens and the RE-Membership class for adults are means to become a member by profession of faith.

Re-affirmation of Faith

If you have been a member of a Christian church but you have not been active in recent years, you join the church by re-affirmation. It is appropriate to reaffirm the commitment made at baptism, to make public again your profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and to express your intention to participate actively in the worship and mission of your church.

Transfer of Certificate or Letter of Transfer

If you are a member of another Christian church, you may join First Presbyterian by providing us with the contact information of your previous church to request a transfer of certificate or a letter of transfer.

Affiliate Member

If you are a member of another Christian church and do not plan to stay in the area for an extended period of time or if you visit First Presbyterian Church of Findlay often and wish your membership to remain elsewhere, you may ask to be an affiliate member.

Membership Class

This class is open to those who are interested in joining our church family. Join our Pastors and Connectional Ministries members for an information session and conversation about our church; what it means to be ‘Presbyterian’; the PC(USA); our worship; salvation & evangelism; and discipleship, outreach, & mission. If you are interested in membership please let us know: in the Comments box on the friendship pad; fill out a Welcome card from the pew rack and place it in the offering plate; speak directly to one of our pastors; or contact the church office (419) 423-2112.  We invite you to join us!
