In order to grow effectively in the body of Christ, it is important to belong to a Bible-based , spirit-led family of believers. We need to join together in spirit to function as a healthy local church body and to seek the synergy that releases our corporate potential in God.
The benefits of belonging to a local church are:
- spiritual covering and a place of belonging
- supportive network of fellow believers and accountability
- spiritual direction and growth
- access to pastoral care
- opportunities for greater involvement, and
- being part of a greater Christian witness.
The membership process
Step 1: Attend a membership information session
These informal information sessions takes place directly after certain Sunday services at the beginning of each term.
Step 2: Complete the Life Changers course
Every person committed to the membership process will be expected to complete the Life Changers course, the goal of this course being on-going life change resulting in us becoming more like Jesus.
Step 3: New Members Intake
Becoming part of the covenant-keeping community at Hatfield is a natural outflow of the Life Changers process. New members are officially welcomed into the Hatfield Christian Church family during certain Sunday morning services.
