What is Membership?

Membership at hbc is a commitment to be a part of this body as someone in our church family. To become a member of hbc we require that you have a meeting with our Pastor to walk through some simple but significant information about who we are, what we do, who you are, and what you are committing to.


Member Expectations:

Believe the gospel of Jesus Christ.                (John 3:16)

Our sin separates us from God. Jesus died for our sin, paring the debt we owed. He raised again to show His victory over death. Because of what Jesus has done, everyone who trusts in Him is forgiven and welcomed into His Kingdom.


Be baptized by immersion in water.                              (Romans 6:4) 

Baptism represents Jesus’ death and resurrection on our behalf. Baptism also represents our death to sin followed by our new life in Christ.


Faithfully participate in a worship service and a Life Group.         (Hebrews 10:24-25) 

Christians meet regularly together for prayer, learning, fellowship and accountability.

Members participate in a business meeting only once a year. We hold this meeting in January to celebrate the past year, learn about the goals for the upcoming year including missions, to vote on the annual budget, and to vote on the members of the church council.


Our church council is six men who protect and advise our lead pastor. These men serve for three years and two are rotated off every year. There are a number of qualifications required in order to be a member of the council in addition to being voted in by the members of the church body.

Here are the current council members:
