New Member Orientation
Meadowbrook First Baptist Church welcomes you! The church where God's word is powerfully preached and rightly divided. We are so excited that you have chosen to visit our website and we pray it will be informative. We strive to learn and grow to be all that Christ has called us to be.
Worship service begins each Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. Weekly bible study is held Wednesday night beginning at 7:00 p.m. for adults and youth.
Many people feel compelled to join church but are hesitant during our alter call. After each worship service Pastor Perkins will make a plea for those who are seeking a church home, those who need prayer, and those who are not saved a personal invitation to those who are unsure of the gospel or looking for a church home. During the alter call any individual may join.
The Pastor gives you a warm welcome and informs that you have made a wonderful decision in making that faith walk. You will be escorted by a member of our ministry team where we will pray with you and obtain important information from you so we can stay in contact.

Salvation is deliverance from the guilt and penalty of your sins by accepting Jesus Christ in your life.
Believing that Christ is the Son of God and accepting the fact that He died for our sins put us in right standings with God.
1. Admit that you have sinned.
"Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;
2. There is a penalty for sin.
"Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death , but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
3. Acknowledge God's love for you.
"Romans 5:8 - God demonstrates His love for us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
4. Accept salvation by faith.
"Romans 10:9 - That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and will believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
