"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ"  1 Corinthians 12:12-14

Joining the Christian Church

We are so happy you are considering joining our church! Membership in the Christian church is about a commitment to Christ. As members, we express that commitment through our covenant with Christ’s body, the church. When you take the vows of a member at Athens First United Methodist Church, you make a covenant to uphold the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. We urge you to pray about becoming a member.

Joining the United Methodist Church

Rev. Martha Aenchbacher is available to discuss the process of joining the United Methodist Church with you. Joining the church gives you the opportunity to grow in your relationships: your relationship with Christ, your relationship with other believers, and your relationship with those whom we serve.

If you have been baptized in another Christian church, we recognize your baptism and you have the opportunity to join by transfer of membership from another denomination. Please contact Rev. Martha Aenchbacher if you would like to know more about this process.
