How Do I Become a Presbyterian?


At the center of our belief as Presbyterians is the sovereignty of God, revealed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Presbyterians believe that the Bible is the unparalleled witness to the reconciling love of God.

Moved by God's forgiveness, each person responds in faith, repentance, and obedience as one begins the new life in Christ.

To become a Presbyterian Christian, one --

  • Confesses faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
  • Promises to be a faithful disciple, obeying Christ's word and showing his love.
  • Witnesses in the community using one's unique gifts.
One becomes a member of the Presbyterian Church --
  • Through adult baptism, affirmation of faith, reaffirmation of faith, or by letter of transfer.
  • The Dorchester Presbyterian Church Session (the governing body in the local church) meets each month and is given the responsibility of welcoming new members into the church community.
