The Christian life is a life long journey that requires us to move forward in our faith. Our hope is to introduce you to our loving God and equip you for the work that He has called you to. We have provided seven steps below to help you as you prayerfully determine your next step as you move forward in your faith.

GET EQUIPPED

Serving

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."

Mark 10:45

What is service and ministry?

“Service” is when we work for the sake of the church body.  Examples of service include cleaning, maintenance, greeting, providing meals to the sick, etc.  The church needs many workers to function properly and we are all called to serve.  “Ministry” is a service that includes teaching the Word of God in some way.  This includes small group Bible Studies, preaching, teaching in the Children's ministry, and many other opportunities available at HBC. 

Won't they do it?

No. There is no “they.”  There is only “us”.  The Bible teaches that we are the church.  The church is a body and we are members, gifted to serve.  We believe God has you here to be the church, not just to “go to church.” One of our principles at HBC is “Every Member a Minister”. God wants to use you to further His Kingdom! If you see a need, join a team and fill that need. The question for the believer is never "Will you serve?", the question is "Where will you serve?"
