You may become a member of First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill 
in one of several ways: 
BY PROFESSION OF FAITH
If you have never been a member of any church, you can join formally through baptism and become a member by a "Profession of Faith." The Pastor will be glad to discuss baptism with you.
 
BY TRANSFER FROM ANOTHER CHURCH
If you have been an active member at another United Methodist church or a church of another denomination, you can join be a "Transfer of Membership." It is not necessary for you to write your former church to get your membership letter. Since you are already baptized, you will be asked to take the vow taken by all members of the United Methodist Church: "Will you be loyal to Christ through The United Methodist Church and uphold it by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness?"

BY RE-AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
If you have professed your faith and been a member of another church of any denomination, but have not been active for a while, you can become a member of First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill. Your baptism is accepted and you will be received into membership on Re-Affirmation of Faith. You will be asked to take the vow taken by all members of The United Methodist Church.
