In common with
other Baptist churches, we believe baptism is commanded by Christ for those who
make a personal commitment to him. We therefore practice Believer's
Baptism out of obedience; this is by full immersion.
On the birth of a child we offer a thanksgiving or dedication service.
Church Membership is open to all who have made a personal commitment to Christ and who want to make Castle Vale Baptist Church their spiritual home. People usually want to attend for some weeks or months before asking to become a member.
A person can become a member following Believer's Baptism, by profession of faith and/or transfer.
New members are received in to fellowship at a Communion Service where they are asked to publicly reaffirm their faith.
Guidance notes about membership are available on request.
