How to Join St. Andrews
New members are received by Session, St. Andrews’ governing body, in one of the four ways:
- By Profession of Faith in Jesus Christ before Session and then the congregation. If you were previously baptized, but never made a public profession.
- By Profession of Faith in Jesus Christ and Baptism. If you have not been baptized, you may join by making a public profession of faith before Session and the congregation and then being baptized in a Sunday morning worship service.
- By Reaffirmation of Faith. If you have been a member of a Christian church, but have not been active in recent years, you may join by re-affirming your need of, and dependence on, the grace and love of God.
- By Certificate of Transfer. If you have made a profession of faith and are a member of another church, you may join by transferring your certificate of membership from the church that you are leaving to join St. Andrews
