How to Become a Christian...

  • Admit - Admit you're a sinner and be willing to turn away from your sin to follow God’s new direction for your life. (Rom. 3:23; Acts 3:19)
  • Believe - Trust in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, for eternal life. (Jn. 3:16)
  • Confess - Acknowledge Jesus as the supreme authority over your life. (Rom. 10:9, 13)
  • Receive - Accept God’s free gift of salvation. (Rom. 6:23, Jn. 1:12)

    How May I Join?

  • By Baptism - When you have already personally committed your life to Jesus Christ, but have not yet been baptized by immersion as a public symbol of your faith.
  • By Transfer - When you are a member of another Baptist Church.
  • By Statement - When you are a member of a church of another denomination of like faith and practice, and have been baptized by immersion as a public symbol of your faith.
  • When Do I Join?

    Near the close of the service, as an invitation song is sung, walk to the minister and tell him of your decision. He or a trained counselor will meet with you to help you understand your decision, answer any questions, pray with you and secure the information necessary for our records. Usually this takes just a few minutes. New members are presented and welcomed to the church.

    May I join a Bible Study class without joining the church?

    Of course! Though this is not church membership, it is an excellent way to get to know the HBC family and to learn more about the Bible and God’s plan for you. On Sundays, Greeters are waiting to assist you in locating appropriate classes for you and your family.
