Reception Into Membership

st marks lutheran church milford ohChrist instituted Baptism as the means of bringing infants to faith in Him. That is why infants are received into membership through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism (unless, of course, the children have been baptized previously in a Christian church). All adults who have never been baptized are normally first instructed in the Christian faith before their baptism.

Adults are received into membership in one of four ways.

Transfer
For those who are members of another congregation of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

Affirmation of Faith
For those who come from a Lutheran congregation that is not a member of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

Reaffirmation of Faith
For those who were confirmed Lutheran but presently have no church home and desire to re-establish communicant status.

Adult Confirmation
For those who have either no church background or a non-Lutheran background. This would involve a course of instruction in the basics of the Christian faith taught by Pastor Fenker.

Communicant membership is maintained by those who trust in Jesus as Savior, faithfully lead a Christian life, attend church, receive the Lord’s Supper, and support the work of the church with a portion of their time, talents, and treasures.
