To become a member:
  1. Complete the New Member Form
  2. We will contact you and schedule a time to respond to the membership vows by phone or in person.
  3. Come down on Sunday morning during worship to join.


There are four ways to unite with First United Methodist Church of McKinney:

  • Transfer of membership from another United Methodist church
  • Transfer from another denomination
  • Profession of faith in Jesus Christ and baptism
  • Reaffirmation of faith for those already baptized
As members of the church, we promise to be loyal to Jesus Christ through the United Methodist Church and to faithfully participate in the ministries of the church with our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness. If you have never been baptized and wish to join the church, we will schedule a time for you to join by profession of faith and baptism. If you have been baptized, we acknowledge your Christian baptism, and you will not be baptized again.
