V. CHURCH ORDINANCES - NATURE OF ORGANIZATION
First Baptist Church members believe that Christ left two Ordinances for Christians to follow, Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
A. Baptism: This church will receive for baptism any person who has received Jesus Christ as Savior by personal faith, who professes him publicly at any worship service, and who indicates a commitment to follow Christ as Lord.
1. The Senior Minister, or whomever the church shall authorize, shall administer baptism.
2. Baptism shall be by immersion.
B. Lord's Supper: Participants in the Lord's Supper observance shall be persons having made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
1. The Lord’s Supper shall be observed with such frequency as determined by the Senior Minister and Deacon Ministry Team.
2. The Senior Minister, or whomever the church shall authorize, shall preside at the table, and shall be assisted by deacons of the church.
