Here at this church we try and take the matter of membership very seriously.  God's Word says:

"Like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."  (1 Peter 2:4. NRSV)

Our church is made up of living stones – individual believers who let themselves be built into something bigger.  The implications of this are many, not the least of which is that the holiness and usefulness of this church will never exceed that of its individual stones.  We as a church become what we are as people before the Lord.  With this in mind, we try and approach the membership process through a spiritual lens. We want to know more about you: what your deep beliefs are, and what your sense of calling is.  We are seeking alignment of purpose between ourselves and those stones we add to the building of the Lord. If you are interested in joining our tribe, here are the steps you will need to take.


For many, baptism is the first public step of obedience to Christ. If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask that you take this step before becoming a member at FBC Orillia. You can find out more about Baptism here. This is an exciting step that you do not want to miss!
