When someone becomes a Christian, they immediately become a member of God's "universal church."
Joining Riverdale Baptist Church has nothing to do with salvation or eternal life, but the local church represents the place of spiritual growth for the believer. God has specific requirements you must meet to join a local church.
If you have consciously made a decision to receive Jesus Christ as your Savior, have been baptized by immersion since your salvation or will be at a future baptismal service, and God is leading you to join our church, you should present yourself as a candidate for membership by coming forward during the invitation or speaking to a member of our Encouragement Team after the conclusion of the service.
After attending the New Members' Orientation Lunch and making a commitment to membership, you will be formally presented and welcomed as a member of the Riverdale Baptist Church Family.
