To become a member you must:
-Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
-Be baptized by immersion (fully submerged).

If you would like to take the next step toward membership, we provide a few simple options:
To get to know our mission, vision, and passion for the Upstate, we encourage you to attend one of our Getting to Know You dinners. This is a relaxed environment designed to help answer key questions about First Baptist Simpsonville/Upstate Church. A typical dinner has 50-75 participants, all of whom are considering membership or have just joined. We offer the dinner every 4-6 weeks. Please visit our Happenings page or email us at [email protected] to see when our next dinner is.

You may also respond at the closing of a worship service. A pastor or counsel team member will be there to help you and answer any questions.

We also provide an opportunity to discuss membership by indicating your interest on our worship guide and turning it in to the Information Kiosk located in the lobby. This gives us the opportunity to reach out to you the following week and discuss membership further.

After you have made the decision to join, we provide an orientation for all those who are new to First Baptist Simpsonville/Upstate Church called Discovery. We encourage all of our new members to participate. This orientation is offered on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30. For class information (dates and location) please email us at [email protected].
