Common Questions


A church family is made up of individuals who have repented of their sin and placed their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation. To be a member of a church one should be able to profess such faith. In line with the Scripture we also believe that one should be baptized by immersion after one has placed their faith in Christ.


Why do you request that everyone go through the Starting Point Class?


This process allows prospective members to get to know us and allows us to protect the integrity of the church family. We want to make sure that everyone who joins our church understand our vision, values, and beliefs. One can complete this process by making an appointment with one of our pastors.


Will I have to be baptized to become a member?


Not if you are a believer and have been baptized by immersion in a church that has similar doctrine and practice. If you are unsure, one of our pastors will be glad to talk with you.


What if I am a believer, have been baptized by immersion, but I am coming from another denomination?


You may join Fairview on your statement of faith and previous baptism. This means you are making a public statement to our church that you are truly a Christian, and have been baptized by immersion.
