How to be a Calvarian
Join the Calvary Family
- Must be a believer: One who has repented of his/her sins and accepted Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Saviour. John 1;12, John 14:6, Rom 10:9-10
- Must be baptized by immersion.
- Must be voted upon and accepted by the church members.
- Mode of Acceptance
- By Baptism: The new convert or the person who has not been baptized by immersion or who was baptized in his/her infancy without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ but has now been born again in baptized by immersion in the Local Baptist Church where he/she is seeking membership.
- By transfer of membership per letter from the former church, the Local Baptist Church (where the person is seeking membership) has to gather the necessary information eg. When the person became a member of the church or when he/she was baptized in the church upon receiving the letter of transfer from the persons former church and the letter that the person is in good standing and has been recommended by his/her former church for acceptance into the local Baptist church, he is formally voted upon and accepted into membership by the local Baptist church.
- By statement in the absence of points 1 and 2 above, a person can apply for church membership by statement. The individual’s application letter should clearly state that he/she is born again, baptized by immersion and where possible attach a photocopy of his/her baptismal certificate. Thorough investigation should be conducted by the receiving church on the candidate before voting to accept him or her into membership.
- People who fellowship with a Baptist church but have not declared their intention of becoming members of that local church are regarded as regular visitors.
- Associate membership status: This may be granted to Christians, foreign national and Ghanaians living abroad of like-minded faith that apply and show commitment through faithful attendance and participation in the church programs and activities and giving of tithes and other offerings in support of the church while they are in Ghana for short periods.
