We have provided seven steps below to help you as you prayerfully determine your next step as you move forward in your faith.

Membership

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

1 Corinthians 12:27

What is church membership?

In many churches, church membership simply means nothing more than attending a service and having your name on a list in some filing cabinet in the church office – Isn’t that exciting?  Hardly... Biblical church membership is a whole lot more than that.  God wants to use you to further His kingdom as a member of His body! Membership is making a commitment to be a part of the body of Christ through our local church.  That means that whatever the body is doing, the different parts are all working together to get it done. 

HBC is a body of believers.

The word "member" means body part (1 Corinthians 12:27). When the various members of a body come together, all the members must be functioning together in the ways they were designed to function for the body to be whole and functional. The body needs it's members and the members need their body. How well would your body function without its’ right arm? How well would your right arm function without your body? This is the picture God gives us to understand the local church and our roles in it. (1 Corinthians 12)

New members class.

Our New Member’s Class is offered several times every year and thoroughly reviews how you can be an active part of this Biblical local church. We also discuss what HBC is all about, and opportunities to get involved and be equipped.
