Jesus

Saving Grace begins and ends with Jesus Christ.

We desire all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. If you do not know Jesus Christ as you're Lord and Savior, please contact us today! We would love to talk with you about how you can make that decision.

Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9

Baptism

Hoffmantown believes that baptism by immersion is commanded of all Believers as an act of obedience, signifying the death, burial, and resurrection “in Christ” of the Believer. Hoffmantown does not believe in baptismal regeneration, nor does it believe that baptism is necessary to be a Believer. If you are interested in being baptized or would like more information contact us.

Community

Groups are intentional avenues for people to build biblical community. In the New Testament, the basis of fellowship begins with a joining of Jesus with the community of the faithful. The same bonds that link the individual to Jesus also link him or her with others. Our prayer is that our groups will cultivate environments for participants to deepen their relationship with the Lord while deepening their relationships with one another.

Serve

Project Serve is our conduit to connect people with opportunities to serve. We desire to connect believers with service opportunities that glorify God and we have many positions available here in our church and community.

Interested in becoming a member at Hoffmantown?

It is our desire for you to join together with other believers to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. Church membership is not required for anyone choosing to attend Hoffmantown and its functions. We pray the Lord will guide you to the local church in which He has gifted you to serve. If the Lord is leading you to Hoffmantown, the following information will familiarize you with the membership process.

Those leading and serving within the body of Hoffmantown must be unified through the Holy Spirit on foundational doctrine. Membership is a mechanism by which that unity is determined and acknowledged. Therefore, church membership is required in order to assume any leadership or serving position within Hoffmantown. There are five steps to becoming a member of Hoffmantown Church as given in our Articles and Bylaws (adopted in March 2003).

Membership Process

1. Trust Christ Jesus Alone For Salvation

We desire all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth, regardless of whether or not they seek membership at Hoffmantown.

2. Be Baptized by Immersion as a Believer

Believer’s baptism is a symbolic act done in obedience to the Lord.

3. Complete the Next Steps class

4. Sign the Membership Covenant

The covenant is based on the biblical model reflecting the desire to be mutually accountable to one another. It is an agreement between Hoffmantown and the member; and is neither a creed nor a requirement to be a believer. By signing the Membership Covenant, you agree to (1) uphold the doctrine and philosophy of ministry of Hoffmantown, (2) seek to live in unity with the other members of Hoffmantown, and (3) submit to the authority of the Elder Council of Hoffmantown.

5. Be Affirmed by the Elders

After your Membership Covenant has been signed and returned, you will have the opportunity to talk with an Elder, Pastor or Lay Leader at the conclusion of the Next Steps Class; or you may choose to meet with a pastor at a later date. The final step in the process will be affirmation of membership at the Elder Council meeting following your pastoral meeting. You’ll subsequently receive a letter of affirmation along with follow-up contact from the Deacon Team to welcome you and answer any questions you may have about membership at Hoffmantown.

These steps may not coincide with the manner you have joined other churches in the past (i.e., letter of transfer). Nevertheless, if you are affirmed by the Elders of Hoffmantown, then it would be our pleasure to formally notify your previous church upon your request.

Let us know your decision.
