Becoming a Member of Vestal UMC

Church membership is open to any and all who seek the presence of God in their lives. Baptism is a requirement for membership. If you have not been baptized, please contact one of the pastors to schedule a personal pre-baptism counseling session. If you have been baptized in any denomination, you are free to join whenever your heart is called to do so.

Persons may become members of The United Methodist Church by:

  • Vows and profession of faith;
  • Transfer from another United Methodist Church;
  • Transfer from another body of the Christian Church;
  • The renewal of vows if they have lapsed;

Profession of faith includes:

  • Affirming your baptismal vows;
  • Commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord;
  • Accepting the Old and New Testaments as normative for faith and practice; and
  • Commitment to live the Christian life and remain a faithful member of Christ’s Holy Church through your prayers, your presence, your gifts, and your service.

If you would like to discuss membership with a pastor, the following options are available to you:

  • Check the "Wish to Join This Church" box on the pew pad this Sunday.  Someone from our office will contact you regarding our membership classes.
  • Call or email to discuss your interest with the church office, (607)785-3367 or
