First Baptist Church   1279 Friendship Road   Tallassee, Alabama 36078
First Baptist exists to experience, celebrate, and share God’s grace. We affirm six main functions as the means of so doing: Christ-centered worship, Biblical instruction, prayer, world evangelization, nurturing fellowship, and caring acts.
Eight Expectations of Church Members: 1. To have a relationship with Jesus Christ 2. To have followed Jesus in believer’s baptism 3. To live for Jesus and to grow spiritually 4. To be faithful in Christian fellowship, faithfully supporting the services of the church 5. To serve Jesus through His church 6. To share the doctrine, mission, and vision of the First Baptist Church 7. To support the work of First Baptist Church with tithes and offerings 8. To help win Tallassee to Jesus Christ We hold periodic Membership Information Classes  for those who would like to investigate First Baptist, our beliefs, our mission strategy, and how we are organized to minister.  These are publicized in the church bulletin and e-mail list. To let us know you are interested, please call the church office at (334) 283-2287. If you do not yet have a relationship with Jesus Christ, we would be thrilled to discuss this with you. Call the church office and ask to speak to the minister of your choice at (334) 283-2287.  You can also read more information provided in the link below:
Ways People Can Join First Baptist Church Upon a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus and as a candidate for believer’s baptism.  Upon transfer of letter. This means that a person is a member of another Baptist church (or another church of like faith and order) and wants to move his or her membership from that church to this one.  The person’s former church responds by mail, stating that such persons are members in good standing, granting their letter.  One must already be a Christian and have been baptized by immersion to join in this manner. By Statement, wherein a person states that he or she has been saved, that he or she was baptized after salvation by immersion and has been a member of a Baptist church (or one of like faith and order).  This includes persons who were Baptists, moved their membership to another denomination, and now want to join The First Baptist Church.  This would also apply to a Baptist church whose membership records have been lost.  By Rededication and Transfer or Statement.   A believer who has been out of fellowship with God and out of church (as a member of another Baptist church or one of like faith and order) and wants to renew his or her commitment may join in this manner. 
The   Principle   of   Church   Membership:   In   joining   a   local   church,   believers   unite   with   the   rest   of   the   congregation   by covenant.   Church   members   willingly   commit   to   walk   together,   giving   themselves   to   the   Lord,   and   to   one   another…   Until Jesus   comes   again,   the   local   church   is   a   "colony   of   heaven"   (Philippians   3:20)   and   is   a   fellowship   on   a   mission.      The central   purpose   of   the   church   is   to   honor   and   glorify   God;   the   central   task   of   the   church   is   to   bear   witness   to   the   gospel of   Jesus   Christ   through   evangelism   and   missions.      Only   those   who   have   a   relationship   with   Christ,   sharing   his   message and mission for the church should join.  -- Church Bylaws
