The first and best way to get involved at HBC is to join the church. As disciples of Jesus, we are unified by our identity in Christ. Being a member makes our commitment to Christ and his people visible through the local church. It is a regular privilege that involves us in one another's lives for the purposes of the gospel. Our prayer is that membership at Hinson Baptist Church would display to those around us what God’s love looks like. We would love for you to join us.
How to Join
This is not a commitment to join, but an informal opportunity to get to know a few of the leaders of the church as well as hear about our history, beliefs and vision.
Membership Application Form
A link to our membership form can be found here. By filling out this form, you give our Pastors and Elders information to get your membership process started.
Once you have attended a Newcomer's Lunch and decide you would like to join HBC, we will schedule a membership interview with you and one of the pastors. This is an encouraging time for us to hear your testimony and affirm the gospel. We ask that you read the Discover Hinson booklet you receive at the Newcomer's Lunch before you come. You will sign the our Statement of Faith and Church Covenant. The meeting takes around 45 minutes.
The Elders review the applicant’s membership application at a regularly scheduled Elders’ meeting. Upon their collective approval, the application moves to the congregation for their approval.
At the next congregational meeting, the congregation hears the Pastor recount your testimony and they vote to receive you into membership.
