John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Movement, said it best,"If your heart is as my heart, give me your hand." Whether you are in New Orleans for six weeks, six months, six years, or a lifetime, we encourage you to become a member of the First Family.

You will be asked to renew your commitment to Christ, study the Scripture for daily guidance; make a financial commitment to the church, and find a place to express your God-given talents through the Church ministries. You are invited to taks with the minister about this decision.

Joining the First United Methodist Church is easy. Simply let the minister know your intentions. We will meet with you and receive you into membership by:

[1] CERTIFICATE OFTRANSFER We will write your former church for your Letter of Membership
[2] PROFESSION OF FAITH If you never joined a church, you need to declare your desire to do so at First United Methodist Church. Vows will be explained by the minister.
[3] BAPTISM If you have been baptized in any church, your baptism is valid here. If you wish to be baptized, we will be pleased to administer the Sacrament.
