EFFECTIVELY AND BIBLICALLY ASSIMILATING NEW MEMBERS AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH TALLADEGA, ALABAMA This project sought to help First Baptist Church Talladega effectively assimilate new church members as a significant step in the process of its revitalization as a local church. As opposed to the previous method of a New Member Orientation after an individual had joined as a member of the church, the project demonstrates the advantages of utilizing a prerequisite membership class to better prepare and incorporate new members into the local church. The project assessed the New Member Orientation process, developed a teaching series to teach the members of FBC about effectively assimilating biblical church members, developed a curriculum for the prerequisite membership class, and included a policy change proposal to transition to a prerequisite membership class as the new method for assimilating new members at FBC.
