All new members uniting with New Jerusalem, whether by Christian experience, Baptism, or Letter are immediately assigned sponsors. Each sponsors duties are to walk with, to encourage, to keep new members informed of all church and weekly activities and special events and to follow up with new members for twelve months. .
There is a New Members Orientation consisting of four week training sessions. These sessions are mandatory and provide a clear understanding of The Conversion Experience; Kernels of Faith; Stewardship; and the Introductions to each Church Auxiliaries and Ministries.
The new members orientation are taught by associated ministers of New Jerusalem each Sunday immediately after the 8:00 am Worship Service.

All new members should plan to attend the new members’ orientation training sessions.
Through participation in the four weeks of orientation training sessions, new members gain an understanding of the disposition of the covenant relationship they are entering into and the necessity for wholehearted commitment. This also helps to gain a clear understanding of, and commitment to the distinguish privileges of membership as a member of the New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church Family.
