Mt Moriah Baptist Church

Becoming a Member

memberIf you are interested in becoming a disciple at Mt. Moriah Baptist,  we would be delighted to welcome you to our family. During the Call to Discipleship, persons desiring to be active members of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church should come forward and express their desire to join to the clerk and give the method on which they will be joining.

Christian Experience

It sometimes happens that persons who have been baptized, but by some means have lost their membership  desire to unite with a Church. They bring no letter nor are they re-baptized. They give account of their conversion and Christian life, which being satisfactory, are received by the Church on their confession or, as it is usually stated, “On experience”.


In the changes of social and domestic life, which are instantly transpiring, members often move from the vicinity of the Church where they have united. It then becomes their duty, and should be their desire to connect themselves with a Church of the same faith near their home by letter of commendation and dismissal from the Church which they are leaving.


Members of Mt. Moriah who have been away from the Church for a period of time may re-unite under this method and be restored to full fellowship of the Church.
