How To Join

First Baptist Sweetwater is a cooperating/supporting church affiliated with the Greater Orlando Baptist Association, the Florida Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
 
FBS is comprised of those who have been called of God by faith in Jesus Christ to become His children so that we “should be to the praise of His glory.” (Ephesians 1:12)
 
It is our desire to reflect the character of Christ in all things that we say and do as we serve Him as King and Lord of our lives.
How to Join Our Church: There are several simple steps to complete in order to become a member at First Baptist Sweetwater. The steps listed are the most natural order, but the first three do not have to occur in that order (i.e. you could attend a Discover Sweetwater course before you decide to have a conversation about your salvation.)
  • Have a brief, one-on-one conversation with a pastor or trained encourager (preferably by coming forward at the conclusion of a sermon). We will help you determine if you need to join through profession of faith (and baptism), transfer of membership from another Baptist church, or by statement of faith (when records from another church are not kept).
  • Register for and complete a Discover Sweetwater course (offered every 2-3 months).
  • Sign the Church Covenant (given & explained at Discover Sweetwater).
  • Be present for a New Member Commitment service where the church family accepts you into the membership of the church (can only occur after the previous steps have been completed).
