Baptism is, of course, the key sacrament through which any person may become part of the Body of Christ. (See also Baptism)

The steps to become part of a specific church organisation, in this case the Reformed Church of Zug, are, however, a bit more prosaic and often confusing to people moving to Switzerland.

Legally, the most important step in becoming a member is a written Declaration of Intent. Due to the close relationship between the State and the national churches, questions about church membership often arise in official paperwork, such as immigration forms for example.
