OUR INVITATION TO YOU: The people of Northern Hills Baptist
Church join in welcoming you. We invite you to share in the
various activities of Worship, Bible Study and Ministry which our
church offers. If you do not have a Church Home where you are
actively in Christian Service, you may feel the Spirit’s leading to
make this your church. If so, we invite you to present yourself for
membership by:
• A Profession of Faith & Baptism
• A Letter from another Church
• A Statement of membership in
another church where you have
accepted Christ as Savior and
have been baptized by immersion.
WHEN TO COME FORWARD: You are invited to respond at the close
of the service when the Pastor offers an open invitation for you to
come forward and make your decision known. If you are in doubt
about anything, you may come forward and someone will be happy
to counsel with you.
