membership at hfc

According to the pattern set forth in the New Testament, every Christ-follower is called to become an active member of a local church. Let's walk through what meaningful membership looks like at Harvestfield Church Rainbow City, AL.

steps to becoming a member

Becoming a member of a local church is a very serious commitment that calls for prayerful consideration. Joining a church is not like signing up for a club that merely expects its members to pay their dues on time and stop by once in a while. It's more like becoming part of a family whose members are expected to provide support and encouragement to one another while being held to a higher degree of responsibility, service, and sacrifice than those who simply drop in for a visit. That being said, HFC family members are expected to engage actively in the life of the body, serve faithfully in support of the church's mission, give worshipfully in response to God's grace, and submit humbly to the leadership of the elders and the headship of Christ Jesus.


Thinking about membership at HFC? We've developed a simple process to help you discern whether the Lord might be leading you to pursue discipleship, fellowship, and sound doctrine in partnership with Harvestfield Church.

  • Our New Connections packet is designed to give you a detailed overview of how our church functions and what it's like to be a functional member of the body here at HFC. You can read through it online or pick up a printed copy in The Blend or the worship center.


    READ THE NEW CONNECTIONS PACKET

  • At our Membership Class, you'll have an opportunity to sit around a table with some of our elders and ministerial staff to learn more about the DNA of our church and ask questions about all things related to HFC. You're welcome to attend a Membership Class for informational purposes only; simply attending does not obligate you to commit to membership. Membership Classes are offered regularly throughout the year. Childcare is provided.


    REGISTER FOR A MEMBERSHIP CLASS

  • As part of the Membership Class, you'll be given some homework that will help you launch into involvement at HFC and also articulate your understanding of the gospel and the story of your personal response to Christ. You can complete the homework on paper or online either before or after attending a Membership Class.


    COMPLETE MEMBERSHIP HOMEWORK

  • After turning in your membership homework, one of our elders will reach out to you to set up a brief meeting or phone call in order to affirm your desire to become a member of Harvestfield Church.

salvation & baptism

Harvestfield Church welcomes into membership all individuals who have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and have been baptized by immersion in water. If you'd like to have a conversation about the gospel, salvation, or baptism, we'd love to speak with you!
