Become a Member

Highview Baptist Church exists to make, equip and send disciples to reach our neighbors and the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It takes each one of us living out this mission, partnering together for a great impact in our city and around the world.

There are four steps to becoming a disciple-making member of Highview:


is a one-time gathering, regularly offered, designed to help you learn more about our church family, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with the information necessary to take the next steps in membership.


is a fellowship meal designed for you to get to know the pastors, staff and other church members and to help integrate Believers into the life of Highview.


Discipleship is a critical part of Highview. It is our desire that each member be apart of a community group where they can grow, lead, share and serve.


Ultimately as believers, we are called to be disciple makers. We desire each member of Highview to faithfully participate in or lead a community group and be involved in a discipling relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What about baptism?

    Believer's baptism is required for membership at Highview. We believe that baptism does not save anyone, but is a believer’s symbolic identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. It is done by immersion as an act of obedience by those who have put their faith and trust in Christ. If you are unsure if you meet this requirement, we encourage you to speak with a pastor.

  • Can I transfer my membership from another church?

    In many cases, we can transfer membership from another church by letter. After you have attended Discover Highview and completed an application for membership, one of our staff members will contact the other congregation.
