Becoming a Member


For persons who have become Christ-Followers by receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being baptized by immersion.


For persons who are saved, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and are members in good standing of another Baptist church that will provide a letter of recommendation to Fort Mitchell Baptist Church. 

For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation but have been members of a church of another denomination, the best way to join is by notifying one of our Pastors or Deacons that you’re interested in becoming  an active member.   We will answer your  questions, help you understand next steps and schedule a time when you can be presented to the church family for membership.

Call to Ministry

Deacon Ministry

The Deacon Body meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., in the Conference Room of Fort Mitchell Baptist Church.  Every family who attends FMBC is assigned a family deacon, who communicates with the families on a regular basis.  If there is a crisis in the family, the deacon is on call to assist.   During the monthly meetings the deacons spend time in leadership training to learn how to be a better disciple for Christ.

Deacon terms are for three years, and the selection of Deacons occurs on an annual basis as Deacons rotate off.
