Those who are interested in becoming members are asked to participate in a three-part class which discusses:
- The basics of Christianity
- The Reformed tradition
- New Hope's history, vision and mission
- spiritual gifts and involvement in the church.
Church Members have the privilege of:
- Voting in congregational meetings
- Presenting children for baptism
- Being eligible to be considered for ordained office (women and men for the role of deacon, and men for the role of elder according to our understanding of Scripture)
- Greater accountability in their lives and growth as a Christian.
Once the membership class has been completed, you are welcome to chose to join, (or not! - there is no obligation to join just because someone takes the class). Should you decide to join, below is a copy of our membership covenant.
If you have any questions - please do not hesitate to email or call.
