|How to Join our Church|
We would be happy to welcome you as a part of South Elkhorn Christian Church of Lexington, Kentucky. During the singing of the last hymn of the worship service, you will be invited to come to the front of the church to be introduced to the congregation, and welcomed by the pastors. You are also invited to contact our Senior Pastor, Mickey Anders, or Associate Pastor, Holly Fuqua, if you have questions about joining. If you have questions about the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), you can read more at the homepage for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ. We also invite you to attend the New Member class held periodically. Here are the ways to join:
By Profession of Faith and Baptism
A person who begins the Christian life does so through baptism, which is a symbol of God's grace through Jesus Christ. For a young person or an adult, this also is an opportunity to profess one's faith. If God is leading you to this decision, one of the pastors will be happy to visit with you about this important step in your spiritual life.
By Transfer from Another Church
Since you have been baptized into the Christian faith in another church, it is not necessary to be rebaptized to celebrate your spiritual growth. You will be asked this question, "Do you believe Jesus Christ is Lord?" The church staff will handle the details of notifying your former church.
If your membership is in another church and you wish to retain that membership in your "home" church, you can become an Associate Member. This grants you pastoral oversight and participation in our church, but you will not be able to become a Deacon or Elder.
