Membership & Baptism

Membership

At Tenth Presbyterian Church we believe that to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ necessarily entails becoming a member of a local church body (Acts 2:41,47; 5:14; 11:24)

Not only is this the pattern we see in the Bible, but the local church is also God’s ordained means for preserving and maturing His people in the Gospel (Eph. 4:11-16; Heb. 13:7,17).

How do I become a member of Tenth Church?

Contact Pattie Lee, parish and membership coordinator. She will explain our membership process and also put you in touch with an elder if you wish to talk further about membership.

Baptism

We believe that Jesus has given two sacraments to his Church, the Lord’s Supper (Mt. 26:26-29) and Baptism (Mt. 28:18-20).

Baptism is intended to communicate two things. First, it signifies our union with Christ and participation in all of his saving work through faith in him. Second, it signifies our membership in the covenant community of God’s people. At Tenth we believe that baptism is to be given to all who profess faith in the Lord Jesus and to the children of believing parents (covenant children).
