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 Meaningful 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. Why Join a Church?
  2. What does High Pointe Believe?
  3. What You Need To Know About High Pointe
  4. What Do We Expect of Church Members?
 
Our next One-Day Membership Class will be offered on Saturday, January 13 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 Membership Class, a meeting with 1 or 2 elders will be scheduled. This meeting 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.
 

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:
