This is the first step in the process of getting plugged in at Hope.
Are you excited about the possibility of becoming a part of our church family? We would love to have you join us for an informal get together with our pastor and other key church leaders to hear about our history, ministry philosophy and vision. We also have a question and answer period, fellowship and light refreshments. Childcare is available.
This is the second step in the process of getting connected to Hope.
Hope Essentials will give you a solid understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. It is designed to help you learn what it means to delight in Christ, devote yourself to Christ, and display Christ here at Hope. The class is taught by a ministry leader and is a requirement for anyone interested in joining a small group, serving or becoming a member.
At Hope Bible Church our focus is on the quality of discipleship. We encourage those in our fellowship to "get connected" by plugging into one of our small groups. The purpose of these groups is to minister to and encourage one another in daily devotionals, effective prayer, and mutual accountability.
We also encourage every growing believer to find a place to serve, using the gifts God has given them to build up His church.
The New Testament clearly indicates that groups of people who were followers of the Lord Jesus Christ identified themselves with and committed themselves to a particular local body. In order to implement the principles of accountability and commitment to the local body of Christ, as defined in the New Testament and practiced in the early churches, Hope Bible Church recognizes the need for formal membership. Membership at Hope Bible Church is for all who are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and have visibly demonstrated that commitment through believer's baptism.
