The First Presbyterian Church of Sidney, Ohio is a community of faith with Jesus Christ at the center. First Presbyterian Church is her people who are committed to life together in our Lord Jesus Christ, giving and sharing of themselves to the life and ministry of the church – The Body of Christ.
We believe that membership is through faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance of his Lordship in all of life. Some have attended First Presbyterian Church with their families, or individually, for all their life. Some come as visitors or guests. In any case, people enter into active membership in a Presbyterian church by:
Profession of faith, Reaffirmation of faith orTransfer from another church
After acknowledging a calling or invitation to the life and ministry of First Church, a prospective member will meet with the Pastor and Elders to be received as a member. New members will be introduced to the congregation during worship. There are three questions that are asked of those joining the First Presbyterian Church. 1.Do you trust in Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and Savior? 2.Trusting in the gracious mercy of God, do you renounce the ways of sin and the power of evil in the world? 3.Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple, obeying his word and showing his love?
If you are interested in learning more about membership in the First Presbyterian Chuch, please speak to the pastor or one of the elders.
