Whilst believers baptism biblically inducts a new Christian into the membership of the worldwide Christian church which is holy and catholic - in common with all other Trinitarian Churches, this is only understood and experienced by a Christian being in membership of a local church. 

Ideally, church membership would follow believers baptism and sometimes does. However, our experience is that often new Christians need time to think carefully what membership involves, because it is a serious and important decision.

If a person moves into the area, attends WBC and has previously been in membership at another church, it is our practice to make contact with the leadership of that church.
