How to Become a Member

The only requirement for membership at New Fountain is a Christian baptism and profession of faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  In common with all United Methodist Churches, we recognize the validity of your previous Christian baptism by another denomination. If you have not received Christian baptism, please arrange a meeting with the pastor. He will be happy to discuss this with you. In addition, you may join New Fountain at the time of your baptism.
Membership at New Fountain represents a commitment by any new member to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ in your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. While all members make this same commitment, each member fulfills them differently. Throughout the year, we ask church members to reflect on where God’s will is calling on them to grow in their life. We fervently pray that all members and Christians live out God’s will for them.
You may become a member during any Sunday morning Worship Service or during the week by conversation with the pastor. If you choose to join during a worship service, simply fill out the form in the bulletin, tear it out, and come down the aisle during the invitation at the end of the service. The pastor will meet you and then lead you in your membership vows. Please plan to take a few minutes after the service to be welcomed by the congregation. If you prefer to join during the week, please arrange a meeting with the pastor.
We also invite those contemplating membership to arrange a meeting with the pastor. He looks forward to meeting with you and discussing any questions or comments that you might have. In addition, he will work with you to determine the best ways for you to connect with our church and community based on your talents and interests.
