Membership at Willingdon Church

If you have placed your trust in Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and Lord and want to take the next step of faith through baptism, Willingdon Church would love to invite you to become part of our church family through membership. Everyone who is in agreement with the basic doctrines and goals of Willingdon Church may join membership through immersion or by confession of faith.

There are two ways in which you may become a member of Willingdon Church:

By Confession of Faith

Any person who confesses faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and who is able to give evidence of his/her baptism (believer’s baptism) may apply for membership by confession of faith.

By Baptism (Immersion)

Any person who confesses faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and demonstrates their new birth through his/her conduct may apply for baptism and membership.

If you are interested in joining Willingdon as a member, please fill out the form below and submit it to us by email.
