Ways to Join

We'd Love to Have You!

Below you will find various ways to become a part of our church family. 

During the Worship Experience we invite you to come forward when the invitation to Christian Discipleship is extended.  You can unite by:

  • FULL MEMBERSHIP- A person may express their desire to make Bethel their home church with the rights, privileges and responsibilities of full members.
  • CONFESSION OF FAITH - Persons who express a first time commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and/or being led of the Holy Spirit desire to unite with this local church body of believers.
  • AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP - Persons who are members of other African Methodist Episcopal Churches outside of the Columbia area, who desire a local church home.
  • ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP- Persons who are members of churches of other denominations who desire a local church home.
  • TRANSFER - Persons who transfer with full membership from another A.M.E. Church to Bethel A.M.E. Church.

However you join us, our goal is to have you become a benefiting and contributing member of Bethel. We thank you for visiting with us and know that it is no accident that the Holy Spirit would send you our way. We are excited about the new things that God is doing in and through our congregation and we are trusting God for His plans and promises to be fulfilled in your life!
