Both Christ and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, our discipline and our instruction. We seek to admit members to Cedar Heights Baptist Church by the following:
Discover CHBC Class
Anyone interested in learning more about CHBC and what makes us who we are should plan to join one of our two-week Sunday school classes called “Discover CHBC.” The classes are designed to help you become better acquainted with the doctrine, history and direction of our church. For those wishing to pursue membership, this will be followed by a “Next Steps” morning. Please contact the church office if you are interested in attending the next class.
The prospective member will meet with the elders to provide basic biographical information and testify to God’s converting work in his or her life, and evidence of that work by baptism. After agreeing to the church’s doctrinal statement and covenant, the elders will recommend the prospective member to the congregation for affirmation.
During a quarterly members meeting, the prospective member will be recommended to the congregation. Questions will be fielded, a vote will be taken, and with a majority secured, candidates will be admitted into membership.
