Membership Matters

At New Bridge

Upcoming Class:  

Saturday, March 16th - 9am-Noon

At New Bridge, we take membership seriously, and we want people to make an informed decision when they commit to membership. With that in mind, we offer a special membership class, called "Membership Matters," for those who are interested in learning more about what we do at New bridge, about what we believe, or about how to become a member. We encourage you to sign up for the next Membership Matters class if you are interested in learning more. The class meets on three consecutive Sunday mornings.  


To become a member at New Bridge, a person should be a baptized believer in Jesus Christ, have completed the Membership Matters class, and have signed a New Bridge membership covenant. 

Membership Matters is held periodically throughout the year. 

Register for a class. Choose one of three ways:

  • Call the church office  at 804-737-7331. 
  • Email Angela Linton
  • Check the box on the Connection Slip in the Sunday morning bulletin, and drop it in the offering plate or in the church office.  


What is baptism? 

From the Baptist Faith & Message, 2000.

"Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus." 


Believer's baptism by immersion is a prerequisite for membership at New Bridge Baptist Church. 

Interested in baptism? 

Contact the church office at 804-737-7331 to schedule a time to speak with the Pastor or a staff member about your baptism.
