You've found the web site and maybe the church, but have you discovered First Baptist Church Richmond Hill? We have a lot going on here and we can't wait to tell you about it.  

Part of making sure that you are where God wants you to be, or if you are checking Christianity out to see what it's about is to get more information.  The Membership Class is a newcomer class that will tell you what we do, what we believe, and how you can join us as we reach out to our community.  We are transparent about our beliefs, our vision and where you fit in.  

Ready to check it out?  Fill out this form to sign up for a class.  We'll get in touch with you and let you know when the next classes will be held.

Take a look at some frequently asked questions about the Membership Classes.

The Membership Classes are a two week interactive group taught by Pastor Haley Uhrig during the 10:10AM Sunday school hour.

Pastor Haley Uhrig discusses with the group the beliefs of First Baptist Church, our vision as a church such as why we are focused on people and relationships and how we can connect better with each other and the community and where people in the group can engage with us by doing life together and serving.

No, we offer this so you can tell if First Baptist Church is the place for you.  After the two group sessions, you can choose to become a member, you can think about it for a while or you may feel God is taking you in a different direction, there is no pressure.

No, life happens, just get with Pastor Haley Uhrig and he will get you caught up.

We actually recommend that.  First Baptist Church is everyone's church, not just the adult's church.  We offer Sunday School for the kids during the group sessions but we encourage this to be a family event.

Absolutely!  We have people serving who are not members.  Though we want everyone to attend the Membership Classes, we would not want to deprive a willing servant the opportunity to give through service.

Yes.  Our beliefs will most likely align perfectly but we want you to know where we are going as a church and we want to connect with you.  This is not a screening in or out group, it's a team building group and we all need to be reading the same playbook.

You may become a member in one of the following ways:
  • By initial profession of faith that you have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, baptized by immersion and attended the Membership Classes.
  • By Letter from another baptist church if you profess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and attended the Membership Classes.
  • By Statement of faith, if you profess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and attended the Membership Classes.

You may express your desire to become a church member by:

  • Going forward at the conclusion of one of our services and sharing your decision with the Pastor or counselor.
  • Scheduling an appointment to meet with Pastor Scott.

In addition to this, our web site has sections on what we believe, salvation, and baptism that describe our overall beliefs.

Upon completion of the Membership Classes, all attendees will be given the opportunity to sign a Member's Covenant.  Attending the Membership Classes is not a commitment to membership and signing the covenant is voluntary.
