Become a Member

In the New Testament, to be a Christian is to belong to a local church. In Acts 2:41, it is clear that people were “added” to the Jerusalem church upon repentance, faith in Christ, and baptism. And Christians are given commands that only make sense in light of being attached to a local church. To become a member at High Pointe Baptist Church, there are 3 steps.
 

Before you begin the membership process, check out the following links to learn about us:

 

Step 1: Attend the One-Day Membership Classes

The first step in pursuing membership at High Pointe is to attend the Membership class. The class covers the following four areas:
 
  1. What is the Church and Why Should I Join?
  2. What does High Pointe Believe?
  3. What You Need To Know About High Pointe
  4. What Do We Expect of Church Members at High Pointe?
 
Our next One-Day Membership Class will be offered on Saturday, March 3 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Register for the class (especially to reserve childcare). Contact Brady Bowman with any questions: brady@highpointeaustin.org
.

Step 2: Membership Interview

After you have attended the One-Day Membership Class, you will sit down with one or two elders for a membership interview. This interview allows the elders to get to know you and gives you the opportunity to ask further questions about High Pointe Baptist Church in an informal setting. In order to schedule an interview, fill out the membership interview form here and a High Pointe staff member will reach out to schedule your interview.
 

Step 3: Congregational Affirmation

The final step in our membership process involves the elders recommending you for membership to the congregation. As we are congregationally-governed, the church will then vote to affirm you as a new member into our church family during a members’ meeting (Note: you won’t be present during that members’ meeting since you won’t be a member yet).
 
 
The decision to join a church is an important one. At High Pointe, we want to equip you to make the wisest decision possible before joining a church, so before you join High Pointe or any other church, ask yourself these ten questions:
