Caring for others with the passion of Christ

Becoming a Member of Laurel Hill


How do I join?

At the close of every worship service a hymn is sung (The Invitation) and the pastor stands facing the congregation.  Simply walk to him and indicate that you want to join the church or make another decision.  You will be asked to fill out an information card, and at the conclusion of the hymn, you will be presented to the congregation.


Are there different ways to join?

Yes.  We receive members three ways:
1.  Confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior followed by baptism by immersion.
2.  Transfer of membership from another Baptist church.
3.  As a Christian, by statement of a previous conversion and baptism by immersion even if not in a Baptist church.


I Still have some questions.

The decision to follow Jesus is the most important decision of your life. You may wish to speak to the pastor, a deacon, or another member for guidance. The office number is (540) 248-3841, and the pastor's email is We are eager to help you in any way we can.
