We Believe

How to Join

Rehobeth Baptist Church is a family of believers who have come together to follow Jesus Christ and to share His love. Anyone who will be in agreement with our beliefs and mission may present themselves for membership in one of the following ways:

By profession of faith 
If you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and desire to be baptized.

Transfer your membership from another Baptist church
If God leads you to join our church family, we will be happy to welcome you and we will take the necessary steps to have your membership transferred here.

By statement of faith
If you know in your heart that you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior we will be delighted to receive you. If your present church membership is with a different denomination and you have not been baptized by immersion, we would expect you to be baptized in obedience to Christ before being added to the membership of Rehobeth.

At the invitation time, our pastor will assist you and answer any questions that you may have.


Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.

And on profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

We do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body of Christ.

We engage, therefore, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort.

To promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinance, discipline, and doctrines;

To contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children, to seek the salvation of our kindred and our acquaintances.

To walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment;

To avoid all tattling, backbiting and excessive anger;

To abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love.

To remember each other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech.

To be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
