Church Membership and Baptism

How Do I Become a Member?

The first step in becoming a member of United Baptist Christian Church is to talk with Pastor Vince.  You can speak with him after any Sunday morning service, or set up an appointment to speak with him by calling the church office at 716-754-4473, or by emailing

After you’ve had a brief meeting with Pastor Vince, you will be asked to have a meeting with our elders.  This is a casual meeting that allows you to talk with the elders about your spiritual journey/history, and to discuss why you’d like to join the church.  Be prepared to think of ways in which you might be a help to the church, and to answer the question, “What can United Baptist Christian Church do for you as a member?”

Our Promise to You/Your Promise to Us

You will be asked to review and eventually sign a Membership Covenant.  This agreement covers things like:
