What can I expect when visiting for the first time?
We realize that your first visit to any church can be an intimidating experience. In light of that, we have provided information below that we hope will help you feel as comfortable as possible.

  • Greeters? – Located at each of our main entrances you will find a smiling face to greet you and guide you to a class, assist you in finding a seat or simply answer any questions you may have about the church.
  • What to wear? Dress comfortably. While some people dress up, most wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday mornings. Don’t allow your dress to be a barrier.
  • Worship? – Every aspect of our Sunday morning service is intended to make much or the risen Savior. The songs we sing are aimed at Christ and our Bible teaching is verse by verse.
  • Child care? – We provide a secure place for Infants through 5 yr. olds during our worship and Bible study times staffed by trained adults who care for and love children.

How do I become a member of Gainsville Baptist Church?
Membership begins by talking with one of our pastors. Come forward during the invitation time of our morning worship service and request membership.
You may request membership in 3 ways:

  • Baptism – This avenue of membership is for persons who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being scripturally baptized by immersion. Click here for information about how you can place your faith in Christ.
  • Letter from another Baptist church – Perspective members are asked to articulate saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, give evidence of a life that demonstrates faith in Christ, and should have been baptized by immersion. This avenue of membership is for persons who are saved, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and are members in good standing of another church which will transfer them by letter to Gainsville.
  • Statement of faith – This avenue of membership is for persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation but are not members of another Baptist church.
