Community is a group of people leading a common life according to a standard.
We were not created to live in isolation. We need community because God designed us that way. We want to help you find a group of people who will encourage, challenge, care, love, teach, and help you grow. Community Life Groups (CLGs) are the way we help you connect with others like you. CLGs meet weekly in locations throughout the city on different days and times.
When we trust Jesus to save us, we are justified. Baptism is a symbol of that justification.
When you step into the water, you are letting the world know that you have walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Him down a new path. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step in your spiritual journey.
At PaulAnn, we desire your membership statement to be far more than expression of where you attend church. It is intended to be a mutual commitment of belonging, investment and care. We desire your membership to reflect a heart shift from “I attend here” to “this is my family.”
How to Join:
- By salvation or baptism: Accepting the salvation offered through Jesus Christ and following in baptism.
- Statement of faith: Stating that you were saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and have been biblically baptized by immersion after you were saved.
- Transfer of letter: Moving your membership from another Baptist church.
God has gifted each of us with a particular set of skills to serve the local church. Using your gifts by serving in the church is an act of worship. Jesus Himself said that He did not come to be served, but to serve others.
There are many opportunities to serve at PaulAnn and we can always use new volunteers.
