4 Steps to Become a Community Baptist Church Member Now!

  • To begin your walk with God, you must first accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
  • Individuals may accept the invitation to join Community Baptist Church by walking to the front of the sanctuary when the Pastor issues "the call" at each Sunday service.
  • You will meet with a member of our ministerial team who will pray the Prayer of Salvation with you, collect your information and provide you with details on the next steps.

Prayer of Salvation
Heavenly Father, I come to you admitting that I am a sinner. Right now, I choose to turn away from sin, and I ask You to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on the cross to take away my sins. I also believe that He rose again from the dead so that I might be forgiven of my sins and made righteous through faith to Him. I call upon the name of Jesus Christ to be the Savior and Lord of my life. Jesus, I choose to follow You and ask that You fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit. I declare that right now I am a child of God. I am free of penalty of sin and made of the righteousness of God. I am saved in Jesus' name. Amen.
La Salvación

Dios te ama—sin importarle quién tu eres, sin importarle tu pasado. Porque de tal manera te ama Dios, que dio á su Hijo unigénito por ti. La Biblia nos dice "…para que todo el que cree en él no se pierda, sino que tenga vida eterna."(Juan 3:16 NVI). Jesus dio su vida y la recibio otra vez pare que pasemos a la eternidad con El en el cielo y para que vivamos absolutamente lo major en la tierra. Si te gustaría recibír a Jesús en tu vida, di la siguiente oración con la voz en alto y en serio con todo tu Corazón:

Padre celestial, vengo a ti admitiendo que soy un pecador o una pecodora. Ahora mísmo, decido rechazár el pecado, y te pido que me limpies de toda maldad. Yo creo que tu hijo murió en la crúz para quitar mis pecados. Creo también que El se levanto de entre los muertos para perdonár mis pecados y justificarme a travéz de mi fe en El. Yo invoco el nombre de Jesús Cristo para que El sea mi Salvador y Señor de mi vida. Jesús decido seguirte y te pido que me llenes con el podér del Espirítu Santo. Ahora mísmo declaro que soy hijo o hija de Dios. Que estoy libre de la pena del pecado y hecho justo o hecha justa por Dios. Estoy salvado o salvada en el nombre de Jesús. Amen!
