How to Become a Member
Sometimes people ask:
"How do I become a member of the Hope Family?"
At the end of each worship service, music will play or a song will be sung and the pastors stand at the head of the aisle facing the congregation. This is known as the "invitation". Simply step into the aisle and walk up to one of the pastors. Tell the pastor you want to join the church and he will direct you further.
Ways to become a member:
* By public profession of faith in Jesus Christ and as a candidate for baptism.
* On promise of letter from another Southern Baptist church where the individual has made their public profession of faith and was baptized.
* By statement of a previous profession of faith from a church of like faith and order. This requires that you have already been baptized by immersion.
* By baptism when the individual has already made a public profession of faith.
