The early church was excited to meet together regularly and encourage each other in the Christian faith. The New Testament lets us know that the leaders of the church, called shepherds and pastors, willingly and actively watched over their flocks. Because of this, we encourage every professing Christian to join a local church where they can be cared for and also minister to others. With this in mind, we offer a membership class to orient visitors and frequent attenders about how to be a joyful and productive member of a local church to the glory of God. The eight classes will acquaint you with the biblical basis for church membership, with the doctrines and ministry philosophy of Hope Bible Church, with the pastors and other leaders of the church, and with other people considering membership.
Who should take this class?
If you have been our guest for more than a few weeks, we strongly encourage you to take this class so that you can discern whether this is the church that God would have you to join.
How can I participate in this class?
Please contact Pastor Plumley for more information or to find out when the next class will be held.
