Why Membership?

One of the deepest ways to get connected at New Hope is by becoming a member. Membership is a formal commitment to New Hope's vision and mission. The membership commitment communicates clearly that you represent Jesus Christ through your local church. It is a way of saying, “This is who I am and this is what matters to me.” While we have many guests to our church, members are those who are the hosts of their church home. Members are the "owners" of the church and are eligible to vote on church-wide matters and hold certain leadership positions.

Membership is open to baptized believers who have attended a membership class where you learn about New Hope's vision and beliefs. Membership classes are offered several times a year.

Who is it  for?

Membership doesn’t save us. But it enables us to grow and become spiritually mature in Christ. Not only should we be members of the body, each of us should also be able to express the value of membership.

How do I become a member?


Becoming a member here isn’t difficult at all. We just ask you to do three things:

  1. Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

  2. Be baptized by immersion, if you haven’t already.

  3. Talk to one of our pastors about your desire to join New Hope Community Church. We would be happy to talk to you more in depth about the importance of church membership and guide you forward to the next steps.
