Membership Overview

You don’t need to become a member to thrive at Bethel Austin. Membership is an outward and formalized sign of the commitment in an individual’s heart. As members, we join together for God’s glory and our mutual benefit. Membership is a commitment between the Local Church Congregation members and between the Local Church Congregation’s leaders and members.

If you want to be a member, you must:

  1. Have a personal relationship w/Jesus Christ (born again) – Acts 2:41a
  2. Be baptized in water following salvation – Acts 2:41b
  3. Complete the Elements class
  4. Finish the “Kingdom Culture” book (available at the resource table)
  5. If applicable, transfer your church membership from your previous church. If your previous church membership grounded you in the major teachings of the Bible, you may ask them to transfer your membership to Bethel Austin by sending us a letter on church letterhead (c/o Eddie Tait) or emailing
  6. Be actively serving on a team and/or pursuing it when membership requirements are finished
  7. Be actively involved in a ministry and/or pursing it when membership requirements are finished
  8. Sign a “Membership Commitment” as a token of the commitment in your heart (which the Leadership will then approve)
  9. Submit a complete “Membership Application” with picture of yourself. You can also send a picture by email to
Please note: Graduation from Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) fulfills steps 3 & 4.
