Membership is a pledge of faithfulness to Christ as well as a commitment to the local church. It is a public acknowledgement and a personal commitment to follow Jesus, submit to his leading, to serve and be served by the local church.
Membership is open to anyone who professes faith in Jesus Christ, has been baptised, display the fruit that comes from following Christ, and are willing to make a personal commitment to the church. In order to prevent the abuse of our Congregational Governance structure, it is only the members of the church who are empowered to elect pastors, elders and vote on constitutional changes.
If you are interested in becoming a member of Westgate Baptist Church, please contact the office for further information.
