Become a Member of Hope
Saying yes to Jesus forgiving you and leading your life assures your salvation and being made part of the Body of Christ. The next question becomes, what fellowship of believers do I want to become a part of within Christ's body? This is where Discover the 5G's and our membership process comes in.
... in worship.
... in love for God & all people.
... in service.
... sharing the hope of Jesus with a world in need of hope.

This portion of the membership process emphasizes what everyone who comes to Hope is encouraged to do - to get involved & seek new opportunities to grow as a Jesus follower. We believe, as a growing follower of Jesus, especially one desiring membership, it becomes more and more natural to participate in each of the 5G's:
- GATHER- Worship regularly
- GROW- Join a Life Group or Bible Study
- GIVE- Serve in one of Hope’s many ministries
- GO- Build friendships with those who do not have a church home
The participate portion of the process takes between the Discovering the 5G’s and Living the 5G’s classes, and of course, is encouraged as you continue your journey towards a lifetime devotion to Christ.
Over these 5 weeks, each participant will:
- Meet with an Elder
- Take the Spiritual Health Assessment
- Have the option of becoming a commissioned member of Hope Church. Not ready to become a member? That's okay; going through these steps doesn't mean you are required to join our church. The most important thing is saying YES to Jesus's forgiveness & allowing Him to lead your life.
