At Hampton Park, we believe that God has called his people to live in a committed relationship towards one another in local gatherings. We call this membership (1 Cor 12:27). Being members of a local church provides encouragement, care, instruction, and accountability in our commitment to follow Jesus. Becoming a member of Hampton Park is a simple yet thorough process.
Our Membership Matters class is available two times a year as a six-week Core Sunday School class as well as a Weekend Block Class that is offered several times a year on a Friday evening and Saturday morning. To find out if there is an upcoming Membership Matters class, click here. This class includes the following lessons:
- The Functional Centrality of the Gospel
- Life By the Book
- Mission, Baptist Identity, and Church Structure
- Local Church Membership
- Connecting and Serving
- Our Mission: Discipleship
Attending does not require one to join, but we do ask that all prospective members attend this class. After attending the class, anyone who desires to join can fill out and turn in a Membership Application.
An online version of the membership application can be filled out below. Otherwise, paper copies will be handed out during the class. After you have attended Membership Matters and filled out a membership application, we will set up a time to interview you.
One of our pastors will contact you to set up a time to get together with you to interview you for membership. This is an opportunity for us to get to know you better and hear your profession of faith. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you have for us. Upon the recommendation of the pastor who interviewed you and the approval of the pastoral body, your name will go to the congregation for affirmation at a members meeting.
At our members meeting, the pastor who interviewed you will give a brief overview of your profession of faith to the members of our church. The congregation will then vote to receive you into membership.
